Sometimes we are lost, we go through a lot of pain and challenges that looks impossible to get out from, everything during this time seem very difficult, hard and you might have been crying unto God but it seems like God is not there, as if you are meant to suffer, as if God does not listen to you but I want you to that he knows your pain.
And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows.
God knows where we are but our sin is the only thing that distance us from God, the main reason why we lose God's protection is because of our sins and most time when we are in trouble that when we run back to God and that's when we cry out to him for help, That's when we now repent but the damage is done.
When we live for just to have have Good life, enjoyment alone and When we backslide and chase the vanity of the world we give room for our down fall, without God we have failed already and that's why we must plan with God to prepare us for it is to come.
Our God is a merciful God, Jesus christ referred to us as prodigal son, after we have backslide and fall he will pick us again and continue on the journey to the kingdom of God, God knows what we are going through, he know we need help and he not going forsake or leave us alone. Sin is what makes us fall and we must stay away from it. He knows where we are and our pain we must keep up believing in God and never depart from him.
Thanks for your time.
