When I look around and see the destruction and depravity in our world, I turn to God in prayer and reading the Bible to be reminded of God’s promises. When you know which “team” is going to win, in the end, it’s much easier to have peace and rest. This works and is the way that God intended it to be.
What happens when we turn to other things to meet our needs? Many times, we turn to money, medicine, leaders, others, circumstances and even ourselves. Even though there is nothing wrong with these things, God wants us to put our trust in Him. He is the only one that can give us true peace that’s eternal. These other things can be used, by God to help us, but God wants us to put Him first. As we all know, money can be lost, medicine can stop working, leaders, others and ourselves are human and circumstances change. So, none of these can be trusted all the time to meet our needs and/or give us peace.
God always intended for us to turn to Him for everything and to have that wonderful, personal relationship with Him! He loves us and wants to meet our needs and bless us, as well.
There are people who say that God does not exist, because of all the bad things that happen. In the beginning of time, when the first humans, Adam and Eve were created, God gave them a choice or freedom to decide. They chose to sin, by not obeying and because of this, we have sin. Sin causes many bad things to happen.
We could say that doctors don’t exist, because there are sick people or food doesn’t exist, because people are starving, or money doesn’t exist, because you don’t have any. I think you get what I’m trying to say. God does exist, we just need to go to Him with our needs!
