1. Appointment with God 1
2. Appointment with God 2
Richard the young Theology student you read about in part 1 and 2 of the article fell away from his Christian faith because he could not swallow the WHOLE truth about God’s dealing with us.
From his research and study of God’s Word the Bible, especially the book of Job, Richard understood how God dealt with mankind. He understood how God dealt with Job. He even wrote an excellent book on the life of Job which Phillip Yancey, a prolific Christian writer and author of the bestselling book, “Disappointment With God” agreed to write a foreword for his book.
But when the time came for him to act like one who understood how God deals with mankind, he failed. What a disappointment! How easy it is to claim that we know God. How easy it is to trust God when everything is going well with us. How easy it is to claim that we owe allegiance to Jesus Christ, but what a disappointment it is not to “walk our talk.”
Walk the Talk What is the sum total of your belief, opinion and perspective about God? Do you believe in God’s Omnipotence, Omnipresence and Omniscience? Do you believe in the unconditional love of God? Do you believe God cares for you?
If yes, then, fine. Your positive belief about God is fundamental but this fundamental is not enough to earn you victory. What will earn you victory is your ability to tenaciously hold unto your belief in God even in the midst of adversity.
The Bible says: “For we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Chor 5:7). Walking by faith actually means putting everything we believe about God into action. Walking by faith goes beyond knowing and confessing. We may know a lot about God and how He deals with us. We may even preach Jesus and confess Him as our Lord and Saviour, but if in the midst of adversity we start renouncing our belief, opinion or perspective about Jesus, then we are not “walking our talk.”
If you believe that God loves you and will never leave you or forsake you, then, hold tenaciously unto your belief, even if the situation is going from bad to worse.
No Circumstance Can Change God’s Plan for Your Life Jesus said: “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).
One truth you must grab hold of that will make you victorious in life is that God has a great plan for you and no circumstance can hinder God’s plan for your life.
Many situations and problems will arise that may cause you to doubt the fulfillment of God’s plan for your life. Like Jesus, you may encounter a situation that may cause you to exclaim: “Lord, why hast thou forsaken me?” You may want a change and that change is not forthcoming.
You may want God to quickly intervene in the situation you are passing through and it appears God is not doing anything about it, and then doubt and unbelief begin to set in.
This was the situation Richard the young Theology student found himself. While things were rosy, he was busy serving God and doing everything he could to advance God’s kingdom. But when he couldn’t get a job, when his wife dumped him and when his condition of health started deteriorating, and it appeared to him that God was not doing anything to deliver him, he began to question everything he believed about God until he finally renounced his faith.
Dear friend, will you like Richard allow circumstances of life to destroy your faith in God? Will you give up on God because of unpleasant situation? One of the weapons satan uses to destroy people’s faith is doubt. In times of adversity, he makes people to question the love of God. He comes with suggestions like:
“If God loves you, why did He not deliver you?”
“If God has a great plan for you, why is that great plan not fulfilled in your life?”
“You are having all these problems because God is punishing you for your sins.”
All these are lies from satan the father of all lies. If God were to abandon us or punish us for our sins, who will be alive in this world? If God were to give up on us, who will be saved?
Dear friend, to be victorious in life, your faith in God must be stronger, bigger and taller than that of Richard, the young Theology student. YOU SHOULD NOT GIVE UP ON GOD BECAUSE GOD WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU.
God may not intervene at the time you want because He is not bound by your own time but by His own time. His time is the best and He follows His time for your greater good. For this reason, you must learn to respect God’s timing and wait patiently for Him to intervene.
ONE MAIN CHARACTERISTIC OF A TRUE BELIEVER IS THAT HE TRUSTS GOD UNCONDITIONALLY. HIS TRUST IN GOD IS ABSOLUTE. HE IS NOT TRUSTING GOD BECAUSE OF WHAT GOD WILL DO FOR HIM, HE IS TRUSTING GOD BECAUSE HE OWES IT A DUTY TO DO SO. SO, “FOR BETTER FOR WORSE,” A TRUE BELIEVER WILL KEEP TRUSTING GOD.
Examples of true believers abound in the Bible. Think of people like Job. Like shedrack. Like Meshak. Like Abednego. Like Daniel. Like Jeremiah. Like paul. The list is endless.
These true worshippers chose to trust God in the midst of adversity and God did not let them down. The point here is: NEVER GIVE UP ON GOD BECAUSE GOD WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU. He has an APPOINTMENT with you and He will never give up until He fulfills His plan for your life.
For those who have chosen to trust God, what they have with God is an APPOINTMENT. AND WHEN YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT WITH GOD, EVERYTHING, INCLUDING THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY, WILL WORK IN YOUR FAVOUR TO EARN YOU THE VICTORY YOU DESERVE AT THE END OF THE DAY!
