Are you one of many, experiencing a collision of two worlds; the spirit world and the natural world. It happens when life circumstances are out of control. when our world has come undone and our mind is unable to find the answers or make sense of this life. The WHY question is loud and the follow up question of, WHAT is GOING ON is louder.
There are times when our mind can't reconcile or comprehend, the circumstances of life. Our natural mind will try to make sense of it, trying to resolve it, but in this place, if we choose to linger here, our mind will get stuck. And the innocence of our questioning, can slip into a place of doubting; as our mind can't resolve these difficulties. The deceiver is quick to come with scripture, just as he did with Jesus. But our example is Christ, He returned His answer with scripture.
There are some things that never change.
The enemy is out to deceive us.
And that God is always for us.
Scripture makes it very clear that we are not an equal to God, therefore; we will never comprehend who He is and His ways.
He has the big picture of life while our knowledge is so very limited in this world, and our vision of what we think "should be right' in life is skewed by our desires.
We will never find scripture that lines up with "live by our feelings and emotions, or to live by what we think should be right, according to our own understanding.
Quite the opposite is true. We're called to live by faith. Faith is unseen and often with out feeling.
We're told to lean not to our own understanding.
God desires us to abandon our natural thinking because "reasoning" and "trusting" cannot live in the same space.
Christ did say, in this life we will have trouble, but take heart, because He has overcome this world. While we live on this earth, we may not see the benefit to our present day situation. But, thank God, we have the hope of a better day as this earth is not our home; and one day we will see our great reward, it will be worth it all.
"Do you trust Me, only when life circumstances are going your way? Will you trust Me, even in the difficult places that are messy and never what you would choose. I don't change, I am still your God during the good days and the bad days. I am right by your side, in this imperfect world, I have not abandon you. I am forever leading you and guiding you. I am your protector, I am your strong tower, I am your comfort and I am with you. Do NOT be AFRAID. I am your GOD. TRUST ME."
