The Real Deal

sept-15“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” Romans 8:18 (KJV)

“Mommy, she’s real!”  Those were the only words my daughter could say as we stood in the castle of the happiest place on earth. She was meeting the princess she had only read about in books and seen on tv. It was seeing her face to face that made her character come to life.

 

As much as we hate struggles and the trials that besiege us it is through these not so happy times that Jesus becomes real to us. When facing a death of a loved one, illness, an unfaithful husband, debt up to our eyeballs, a fight with a close friend that is when God’s characteristics really shine.  Our comforter, healer, and provider we have studied about in scripture, heard in sermons, or sung about suddenly becomes real to us. We can see God as He works through friends bringing meals or a listening ear and comforting hug. As money appears in our account, an unexpected raise or just needs are met by His Grace.  We see His touch when after many sleepless nights, we feel strengthened and fearlessness as we are empowered through His Holy Spirit. These meetings with Christ gives us the heart knowledge that He is here and real so that in future trials -yes, they will come -we can recall how God was with us and is real indeed.

“Lord, please allow me to know You are real and that You are with me in all situations working to strengthen my faith and testimony to others.”

For His Glory
