The things we go through in life has a way of making us feel like God doesn't love us. Like He doesn't care! Let me encourage you today. God does care. In fact, the very thing that you are going through, He hand crafted the situation with the hope of you surviving it to recieve the revelation of who He is within the circumstance created just for you!
He loves you so much and wants you to experience all of who He is for the duration of you lifetime here on earth! So don't take it like Jehovah God, our Lord is punishing you, or is picking on you. The trust is that He has a crush on you! The devil has nothing to do with what He is allowing in your life that feels uncomfortable right now!
I'm reminded of Proverbs 3: 5,6 KJV "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thy own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
Learning to lean on God for understanding what we are experiencing that doesn't line up with what we believe will provide a safe haven for our souls. It will keep us close to him and allow us to see it the way He sees it. I encourage you to to not only to look at your circumstance from the lns of God, but to also trust what you see with all of your heart. Doubt will prevent you from having faith in God and what He is showing you in the process of the circumstance.
I encourage you to remain faithful to God and to trust Him with all of your heart. He is not trying to stress you out. He is just trying to stretch you out! He desires to make more room in our lives so that He can fill that space with more revelatoin of who He is! God doesn't want to hurt us, He just wants us to know Him!
