Are you going through life on your own? We all have had circumstances in our lives that have caused us to rely on faith or ourselves. I personally have been hurt and disappointed by some of those circumstances. I'm sure that most of you could say the same. How we respond to these situations is so very important. If we respond with anger, or some sort of retaliation we only makes matters worse. The solution is to take it to God in prayer. I know, it seems that, as a christian that would be a given. Well, it's not always the case. Sometimes I get weary and doubtful. There have been times I felt like God wasn't listening. Often I have tried to "fix" whatever or whoever the problem was. Usually that just made the situation worse. It was during one of those impossible situations that my pastor said in a sermon "if you're on your own, then you're on your own". That was a word for change for my life. Right then and there I started lifting that situation up to God. I knew that He was with me, working it out for me. I completely trusted God and He didn't let me down! I learned that by taking every situation to the Lord in prayer and trusting Him completely I am free! I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that God hears my prayers, and that in His timing, everything will work out for my good. There have been many more of those impossible situations since then. Sometimes I fall back into those old habits of trying to do things my way, but then my pastors words resonate through my head. I do not want to be on my own. The good news is that I don't have to! God's got my back! As long as I'm seeking after Him, and obeying Him, anything that is meant to harm will somehow be used for good. Every time I put my trust in Him alone it gets easier the next time. That's because He never let's me down. Every time my faith is increased, I know God can do the impossible. He has already done it with me! So when you feel your self slipping into unbelief like I do from time to time, just cry out to Jesus to increase your faith. He will every time! More of You Lord and less of me!
