Do You Really Care God?


Tears flowed down her face. Despite her prayers, the infant died. Did her prayers mean nothing? God, don’t You hear me? Are Your promises true or not? 

Pain has a way of chaining our heart to doubt. How do I come out of that? How do I become strong enough to defeat the enemy’s deceitful ways of chaining me down? In the book Cast Up A Highway it says, “Because of the desperate need for consolation, the enemy is right there trying to spill gasoline on the fire of our pain to keep our focus there.” Where our focus is~there our mind will be. 

How do I escape the pain? There is no escape; there is only walk through. One power tool that will help is our faith, and it must be strong like any good tool; as pilings must be established on a strong foundation, so must be our faith. Our foundation is a mighty God powerful and magnificent. Ah, but does He care? Sometimes it does not feel like it. So where does that leave us? Cast Up A Highway says we cannot live by our feelings, but by the Word of God; therefore, it is critical to speak out the Word against the enemy who tries to cast doubt and magnify the pain:

      Psalm 91:1-3 (
AMP)
  • HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust! For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. You Lord are my deliverer.

  • Isaiah 41:10 (AMP) Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice. You Lord are my sturdy support through all my trials!

God’s Word builds an inner sturdiness in our faith that will support us through pain and every storm. Our God loves us as His precious children and always desires to help us. Yet every parent knows you cannot give children everything they want. You cannot remove all pain from their lives. So, too, our Almighty God is aware of everything past, present, and future. He knows better than we do, what will bring goodness into our lives and what will not. Thus, in His love He sometimes says “No” or “Not yet”. 

Our part in growing our faith is to grow our trust~trust God’s love for us and stand on the Word. If we are going through the desperate pain of the loss of a loved one, choose to receive God’s consolation, for He will bring a healing balm to hearts. We must trust Him even when we do not understand. Cry on His shoulder and allow Him to hold and comfort us. He will do it; trust Him in that. God is faithful and as we build intimacy with Him, our faith will strengthen. We will still suffer pain, but God will lead us gently up out of it.
