Daily Devotional – 5/14/14 “God doesn’t need a reason!”

If God doesn’t need a reason to bless you then why does He need a reason to allow your test and storm to come? Chile, stop whining about what you think you did to deserve the hell you’re going through because baby it’s just your time. God doesn’t have to have a reason to allow sickness, death, financial strain and stress to stroll into your house because if you’re up on your studying then you’d know that Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” Didn’t you read the story of Job? Then you’d know that Job 1:1 says, “There once was a man named Job who lived in the land of Uz. He was blameless–a man of complete integrity. He feared God and stayed away from evil,” yet God allowed Him to be tested but get this, God wasn’t testing Job, He was testing His faith. Oh but here we are; back sliding, lie telling, cursing, some timing, holiday serving Christians who drop like flies at the first sign of trouble and then you go whining to God asking what you’ve done wrong. (WTF – Where’s the faith?) See, many times we allow our faith to fail which then allow us to fall and we got the nerve to question God. Baby, God doesn’t need a reason to allow a little struggle in your marriage; He’s simply testing to see if your faith in each other is strong enough to get through it. God doesn’t need a reason to allow sickness to invade your body; He’s simply testing your faith to see if it’s strong enough to make you well. God doesn’t need a reason to allow you to go through financial hardships; He’s simply testing to see if your faith will withstand to bring you out of it. Let me say this again, God doesn’t need a reason! God doesn’t need a reason to take you through hell when He was the one who created you yet you still doubt His power and His promise. Where is your faith? Faith in the dictionary is defined as to trust in somebody or something, strong religious belief, the intention to do right or loyalty. Yet the bible defines it this way … “Now faith is the assurance that what we hope for will come about and the certainty that what we cannot see exists (Hebrews 11:1).” Lakisha’s definition; faith is the guarantee God gave when He allowed His only Son to be beaten, starved, hung, pierced, killed and buried so that we could have a right to the promise we can’t even see yet we partake of it every day. God doesn’t need a reason yet you need a reason to serve. How crazy is that?
