When I am in a situation that is difficult to deal with or I don't understand. I ask, Lord, what is the lesson you need me to learn." Sometimes I am stuck in this conundrum for days, weeks, months or even years. Then my question becomes. "Lord is my understanding so little that I have not learnt the lesson yet? Please help my understanding?" Sometimes I am just weary with worry. I sit quietly and the answer comes out of no where. My response in this case is, "thank You God. The answer is so simple yet I have tied myself in knots that only You can undo". This is when I reminded of some of God's promises to me. Jer. 29:11-12; Joel 2:25. One of my other favorite is "When you pass through the water I will be with you; in the river you shall not drown, when you pass through the fire, you shall not be burned". Is. 43:2
Reading Job with this class reminds me that God is Almighty, He is in control, He makes the plans. He is ever faithful. Reading Job made me realize that God does answer your questions. And you are going to get an understanding of who He is to you and who you are to Him. Thank You God that You are mindful of little me!
