Today’s Bible or Not quote is about staying the course in our service and worship to God even in times when it seems everything is going wrong, and it seems like God is not listening. In this popular Christian music song by the band Casting Crowns, the writer sings about the falling rain and that “once again I say ‘amen’ and it’s still raining”. And even though God is not answering the prayer at that moment, the singer still sings:
“I will praise you in this storm”. – Casting Crowns, 2005
This is not unlike the attitude of Job when he said “the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away; blessed be the name of the Lord”. Yes, this is NOT easy.
To all of those struggling with trials and issues of life and faith, today’s quote is for you. Also, here is a Bible verse about how God will pull you out of such times.
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you”. – Isaiah 43:2 (New King James Version)
Answers may not happen on our timetable, or in the way that we had imagined, but one way or another they will come. Hold tight.
