I've been so surprised lately at the number of people, including some Christians, who are not living with an eternal mind-set. They are more concerned with living for the day and are not considering what God wants them to do. They haven't seen God's glory and goodness being poured out for them because of their earthly mind-set.
God cares for you or He would not allow disappointments to come your way. Ask any athlete and they will tell you victory comes with some pain. In a similar way, we are being trained to serve God and honor Him with our lives. He wants to teach us to be compassionate, to love and pray for those who have hurt us. Although when you hurt, He hurts, He will use whatever problem or adversity we face to draw us closer to Him.
1 Peter 5:6-7 says, "humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you." When God gives you strength to go through whatever it is, it is not a self-induced strength. Is is a God inspired strength that comes when we humble ourselves before God. This means we submit our lives to Christ, trusting Him to take care of every problem and trial we have.
God will always listen. He is committed to answer your cries for help. He see your prayers as faith in Him and He will move on your behalf! Go through your day with this in mind!
