Sometimes when we find ourselves in certain situations, we think or ask questions like; “where is God? does God love me? Why am I in this mess? Etc.” God promised in His word that
Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. Isaiah 43
Dear friend, God has not left you. He loves you, and He knows you are in that mess. He wants you to use what you have; Your Faith. Jesus slept in the midst of storm because He knew God was with them, and His Faith calmed the storm.
God is bigger than your problems and He has all your days in the palm of His hands.
In Isaiah 59, the scripture says
Listen! The Lord’s arm is not too weak to save you,
nor is his ear too deaf to hear you call.
It’s your sins that have cut you off from God.
Because of your sins, he has turned away
and will not listen anymore
That was in the Old Testament, before Jesus came. Now the story has changed as Jesus has bridged the gap sin created between us and God. In the New Testament, the problem is not sin. It is our Faith. Without Faith, it is impossible to please Him. Most of us doubt God power to perform. We believe more in our strength and what we have, we believe in what other people can do for us than His infinite power to perform in our lives. We doubt what He can do. James said that such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. We need Faith.
Faith believes in advance what only make sense in reverse. We walk by faith. You do not need to see money before you believe that you are rich. You do not need doctor’s report because your Father is the Number One Physician. You are healed. Start exercising your faith. You do not need the results before you know you have passed the test. God has blessed you already. And you need faith to tap it from the spiritual realm to the physical realm. God bless you
I will close with this:
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. Through their faith, the people in days of old earned a good reputation. Hebrews 11 NLT

The verse about God calling me by name never, ever fails to just blow me way up high right into His arms of love.
That is wonderful my friend; “…blow me way up high right into His arms of love”.
God bless you
