Have there been times in your life where you felt ditched? Have you ever felt totally forsaken?

Ever feel like you had to wait too long to get a "Yes" answer from the Lord? Hey, you’re in real good company. He hasn't forgotten you for a sec. Are you in Christ or outside of such a wonderful relationship? Did you know that David and even Jesus felt that way before - kinda ditched. It's true.. they really did. They had times of waiting, times of pain, but God the Holy Spirit is right there with you as He was for them.

Reading, "As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?" See Psalm 42 and 43. It's like.. When shall I see you God and have your presence? 

"My tears have been my food day and night, while they continually say to me, "Where is your God?" (vv. 1–3). 

I'm thinking about that time when Jesus felt so abandoned and forsaken by His own Father when He was on Mount Calvary, but the Father heard Him and came through for His Son. It's cuz God is faithful even when the righteous feel He isn't. The Bible tells us... 

“For He has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; nor has He hidden His face from Him; but when He cried to Him, He heard.” Ps. 22:24
 
The union of the Trinity was never broken. The Father heard the Son. And God the Father puts us ..at times.. in situations and places where He knows that we can no longer lean on those things that have kinda become symbols of our faith.. and we have somehow started religiously putting our security in em ..but they are not God Himself who is far better. So that type of thing just won't do. It's cuz God loves us so much, and He wants all of us ..wants us closer and better off. He wants us to be real practical of course, but also to lean on Christ as our Lord alone. Jesus is our ultimate security. Question: Is Christ your security.. or is He Lord in theory only for you? You know that when Jesus is truly Savior and Lord over all in your life.. you know, I mean Lord in our daily practice etc.. you and I will have so much Joy and blessing that we just want to go and tell others about Him. Then His Kingdom is expanded by our living it and telling It (the Gospel). God is so glorified when we have Him first and obey His Great Commission ..His way rather than our way. Have you been weary in well doing, or faithearted? I can relate, been there, but don't stay that way. Pray earnestly without ceasing no matter what you feel like today. 

You know it's no time to quit praying to the Father in the Name of Jesus Christ. It's no time to stop tactfully sharing Christ and His Gospel Message with your lost loved ones. Pray for them some more. He might say "No" today, but He could say "Yes" tomorrow. Keep on asking, keep on knocking, keep on seeking the Lord so you can understand His will. Might say "Wait" today "Got way better for ya"... but He could say, "Enough with the waiting already. Let's get on with it" today or tomorrow. Go hit like at facebook.com/shareJesus
