The messenger of God dropped a word and left us all holding the bag the other night. In his encouragement to the believers there that evening, he reminded us that God’s name rests on our success. Oh the pressure!
You walk away from a job. Folks want to see will God indeed be your Jehovah Jireh and your banner into this new season.
Your relationship ends. Inquiring minds want to know if you are going to turn into a puddle of mess and never be heard from again.
You are struck with an infirmity. People want to see if you will continue to trust God for your healing or hide away in shame.
Your loved one has died. They want to know whether you will lose your mind and walk the streets like a crazy person.
PEOPLE. ARE. WATCHING.
They are watching to see how you survive through the seasons of lack and depression. They want to see whether you will stumble and get back up or will you lie where you fell. God cannot and should not be glorified only in our time of prosperity. His power should also be made known when we are yet at lowest.
After all, His name rests on our success. The ability to overcome that divorce. That sexual abuse. That emotional melt down. That debilitating illness. That job separation. That ____________ (you fill in the blank).
God. Is. Not. Man. That. He. Should. Lie.
He will never leave you nor forsake you. He is with you always.
