Often, when facing challenges, many sense their confidence oozing out. They feel like God has left them alone. They start thinking about all the wrong things they have done (for which they have already repented!). They start complaining, “Why is God doing this to me?”
But the truth is that God is a good God. He is not the source of problems. He is a gracious God. He is willing to help anyone who asks Him for help. He is ready to shower His blessings upon our lives every day.
The place where God sits is called ‘the throne of grace’. That is what we read in Hebrew 4:16 “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” The word ‘grace’ is found many times in the Bible. God the Father sent His only begotten Son Jesus to this world to reveal His grace. Because of His grace, everyone can attain salvation for free. And just like salvation, all of God’s blessings are free for us!
Blessings are not determined by the amount of your work. Though you need to do acts of faith, nevertheless, if you start comparing your blessings with your works, you miss the whole point. It is in His great love that God blesses our lives with good things. He loves to cheer us up!
So, the next time you sense the confidence level going down, and is tempted to ask the question “Why is God doing this to me?”, boldly go to the throne of grace and simply ask God! Do not lose your confidence in the Lord when trouble comes.
God knows your strengths and weaknesses. He never wants His children to live a low life. Yet He cannot agree with self-righteousness and religious mindsets!
Enjoy God’s blessings by His grace. You will have a joyful and peaceful life on this earth. Do not listen to the lies of the devil. You are chosen by God to lead a guilt-free life!
