Also, realize something else. Realize that God cares. God cares for you. Mark Chapter 4, verse 38: “The disciples woke him and said to him, ‘Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?’” I’ve said that before in storms. Haven’t you? “God, do you really care? I mean, come on, God, I don’t really feel you right now. I can’t really see you right now. Do you really care?” I hope you didn’t miss what I just said. I didn’t “feel” you right now. We get all focused on feelings and, often times, we miss God.
Yes, our relationship with God brings forth great feelings. Often times, though, it does not. Sometimes we don’t have that “feeling.” We just need to be obedient and follow the Lord. We need to realize that He cares for us, and then, as we do what the Word says, the feelings will follow. Christianity is not something we just feel our way into. “Well, if I feel a quiver in my liver, if I feel it, then it must be God.” NO! You could have had some bad Domino’s pizza last night. That doesn’t mean that. Remember God cares.
I like what the master angler, Simon Peter, said about storms. He said, “Cast all you anxiety [all of you storm stuff] on Him, because He cares for you.” For many of us, right now, going through difficult times, difficult storms, we need to cast our anxiety daily, sometimes hourly, sometimes minute by minute, on Him. Why? He cares for you.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: C3 Global Leadership
