You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

Yesterday night got a call from one of a person whom I knew for many years. He was like a younger brother to me. As I spoke to him I could feel that he was filled with so much sorrow. His wife was carrying their second child but unfortunately the child died in her womb itself.

He told me that they went to the 9th month check up only few days before and doctors told that everything was normal. But after three days for reasons unknown, the child has died in the womb itself. He had returned to his work place yesterday only after burying the child. As he narrated the incident, he wept so badly.

As a couple they had great expectation about their child who is going to be born. But all their expectations and dreams were taken off in a moment. He said to me that even after the doctors report he believed that somehow God will restore the child. Nothing like that happened.

He wept and wept but then I found that his faith upon God was so strong even in the troublesome moment.

Sometimes in our life we expect good things to happen in our life. But then sorrow and trouble comes into our life. At times we were filled with so many blessings and all in a moment, one day everything might be taken off from our life as it happened to Job.

But in such moments when we could not hear or feel God what we should do?  I just want to write about two important things that we need to do.

1.      Praise God in all the situations.
Job lost everything he had in one moment. He lost his health, wealth and all children. But then he said, “…The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.”- Job 1:21. He stood firm to praise God and God rewarded him with double fold blessing.
Praise God even while you face troubles. God will come into your life and will change your life situations.

2.      Do not lose your faith.
In Mark 4:35-41 we read that great storm arose and waves beat into the boat in which the disciples of Jesus travelling. Jesus was asleep in the boat. They saw the situation and fear filled their heart. They lost their faith. Jesus stood up and rebuked the wind. Then He asked His disciples, “How is it that you have no faith?”
Jesus expected that they have to hold onto their faith even in life threatening situation. Even today God expects the same from us.
Do not lose your faith. Trust God in all circumstance.

One important truth that you have to understand is even when you go through tough moment God cares. In Mark 4:38, the disciples of Jesus ran to Him and asked, “…Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?”

My dear young friends, even in our life, we ask God the same question. Today you might be having the same kind of question. But God wants you to know that He cares for you. God cares for His disciples. He knew that even situation gets far worse it’s not impossible for Him to change the situation. God is in control of everything. He could calm the storm in a moment. He cares for you and He says to you today that you will not perish in this situation for He will work and bring back the blessing, peace and the joy you had lost. You will be blessed more than your expectation.
