Q:

I have one problem after another. Has God forgotten me?


A:

We are sometimes at a loss to know why difficulty is permitted in our lives; however, God has not promised us lives of ease. As a matter of fact, God allows such things to happen that we might be awakened to our need to live in greater dependence upon Him, and in due time God will reveal His greater purposes in our lives.

We trust you will allow these trials to be a means of leading you to make a personal commitment of your life to Christ as Savior and Lord (Romans 4:5, Ephesians 2:8-9, and John 1:12) or of drawing you closer to Him. Then you will find that His comfort and love will more than meet your need; read Ephesians 3:20.

Never feel that God has forsaken you, for He is unchanging in His love and grace. The Bible says, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5b). Remember, His love is constant and everlasting, as God has revealed to us in the gift of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. May your faith be grounded in Christ Himself that you may know His will (James 1:5, 3:17).

    Why does God seem to hate me. Please do not tell me He does not, because if He did not, he would have helped me by now. I have prayed and prayed and prayed and I keep coming up empty handed. I just need some kind of light of hope, but thtat is gone. My life is so horrible, I have contemplated just ending it all. I have lost everyone of my family. I am now about to lose all the material things: car, apartment, health insurance, everything. I am being left with nothing, because He took my parents away, and now because of that I have lost my job. I have prayed and prayed for some kind of financial miracle and nothing. In the meantime He blesses people with millions and millions. To be quite honest there really is no point in living.

      Samantha,
      There is a point, and we would urge you to visit http://peacewithgod.net/ to talk online with a member of our team. Consider Psalm 57:2, which states “I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me.” We can’t be sure of His timing, but we can be sure that He loves you and has a purpose for your life. Please don’t miss that. We are praying for you.

    People Think I should be grateful for the things I have, which I am grateful for. But being grateful doesn’t make me happy and that’s why people are calling me selfish. I don’t have anything compared to my friends, and that’s why I’m in this constant miserable state.

    I know that Christ loves me – that’s what makes it harder to understand when things go the wrong way.
