Last week Wesonga told me that the reason I am struggling with blogging again is that I am still questioning God from last year. Later in the week during one of my heart-heart conversations with my small sister, she told me that you can’t question something/someone you don’t believe in. I remember one of my aunts telling me that she was really worried about my faith, and one day when talking to her she told me that what she liked was that I was still praying, and channeling my questions, thoughts, fears to God.
And so on Thursday night I realized that it is okay to write and share my truth because through it all, I still believe that He is God.
This verse is one of those verses I always come back to, but today I ask who do you want Him to be, who do you need Him to be? I like how Jesus narrowed it down to the individual – and how He confirmed that that was revealed to Simon Peter by God Himself. God cares about who you say He is – and He wants to reveal Himself to you personally, so that you talk about a God that you have encountered personally.
One thing about God is that He will reveal Himself, and portray His character through our situations. My family and I now know of God as miracle worker because we saw Him perform a miracle. And so God the miracle worker revealed Himself to us. My question for Him is why did it have to be in that way..
But then again my wise small sister elaborated that as people of faith we always have to trust and believe Him when we don’t know the end – that’s faith!
Christianity is not easy, it’s not a walk in the park- but the beauty is in knowing that at the end of it all He is God, and choosing to believe that daily.
My encouragement for us this week is to be real with where we are in our faith, ask Him to be that which we want and need Him to be, and choose to believe that through it all He is God!
May we learn to be sincere with you daily, and Lord may you also reveal yourself to us. In Jesus name. Amen.
Have a blessed week!
