The top 5 reasons God might not rescue you
FREE Catholic Classes
Just as children learn through experience, we must learn without depending on God as a crutch.
God wants us to trust and grow in Him.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Turning to God in times of weakness is normal, but does that mean we should use Him as an emotional crutch to get through every single aspect of our lives? Catholic Online has compiled five reasons God might not come to the rescue when you think you need him.
"Trust wholeheartedly in The Lord, put no faith in your own perception; acknowledge him in every course you take, and he will see that your paths are smooth" Proverbs 3:5-6
Trusting God ensures safety and bright futures, but if you don't trust, God might not do anything to change your circumstances. The next time you see your life heading in a bad direction, trust that God will support your decision to change it, and will bless you in your endeavor.
but he has answered me, 'My grace is enough for you: for power is at full stretch in weakness.' It is, then, about my weaknesses that I am happiest of all to boast, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me; 2 Corinthians 12:9
Learning to accept God's grace comes with failing on our own and growing in Him.
God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but the Spirit of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7
Not only do we learn to accept God's grace in the midst of our failures, we also learn life lessons.
For I am certain of this: neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nothing already in existence and nothing still to come, nor any power, nor the heights nor the depths, nor any created thing whatever, will be able to come between us and the love of God, known to us in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
Though we can't always see the silver lining, God is ALWAYS present in our lives and is behind every good and perfect thing that happens -even if it takes time for it to manifest.
My brothers, consider it a great joy when trials of many kinds come upon you, for you well know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance, and perseverance must complete its work so that you will become fully developed, complete, not deficient in any way. James 1:2-4
By suffering trial after trial, we learn to lean on the Lord and trust that everything will end up okay. It is for this reason that God lets us all learn at our own pace that we must do our best to turn our situations around, then turn to God for what we cannot control.
