Sometimes we treat God like He’s dead – like He doesn’t see us or know us or hear us.
God is not like Baal whose prophets called upon him from morning to noon, but he didn’t answer. The prophets cried loud and then louder. They even cut themselves with knives and lancets, but there was still no answer because Baal has no voice.
He is not like idols that have mouths that cannot speak, eyes that cannot see, ears that cannot hear, noses that cannot smell, hands that cannot handle or feet that cannot walk. In the Old Testament, they had to carry their idols because they couldn’t walk, but it has been God that has been carrying you.
You are not praying to a god that cannot save. You are not praying to a god that cannot deliver you.
When God led the Israelites through the wilderness, there were fiery serpents, scorpions and drought there, but He protected them, fed them manna and brought forth water out of a hard rock.
God knows what He is doing. His way is perfect.
He is not in the hinder part of the ship, sleeping on a pillow. He never sleeps or slumbers. He is watching over you.
God is not a man, He is not like man and He does not lie.
God knows the plan He has for you, but you must trust His plan.
When you prayed, your words were heard. You must believe those things you say will come to pass. You must believe that you will receive.
The word of God is alive and working.
God is alive and He is working…
He is not dead.
