Why do we wait to turn to God?
Have you ever asked yourself the question, why do we wait for problems in our life to turn to God? I ask myself that about every day. I read a story or someone says something about how their life is a total disaster and the punch line is, I asked God for His help, or they say something like, why did I wait so long before turning to God? Now you have asked the right question, why!
It never seems to amaze me of why people wait. Of course I am no different and have done the very thing, but I learned a valuable lesson that has changed my whole outlook on life and though I still struggle, it does not get to critical or too late. God has made a promise to each and every one of us and that is I will never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). If He has been there from the very start when you needed Him then and now you need Him even more, He is still there, nothing has changed.
We all need to learn to put our trust and faith in God 24/7 instead of when we need Him. I have found that most situations never elevate to serious because my faith is in God that He will do what He says He will do and cover me. The bible Jesus says in that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you (John 16:23) Why would you want to wait?
There are many trials we could avoid if we would only trust in Jesus at the start and not near the end. God will turn our trials into triumphs and our hurts into healings if we will just trust Him. The promise is true; “I will never leave you nor forsake you” Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)
God loves you with a love that goes beyond anything we could ever dream or imagine and that is a love that will keep you safe and keep you in His arms.
