My dearest Dfazio, do not weight yourself with despair. it is natural to wonder why. We are human, mere mortals. We can only see what is in front of us. The future is never certain until it becomes the present, and even then often remains inexplicable. I am so sorry for all you suffer at this time. You carry an enormously heavy cross upon your shoulders.
What I have learned, from my experiences, is that, aside from the fact that God will answer, how He goes about it is never predictable. Sometimes He says yes, sometimes He says no, sometimes He says wait a while. In your situation, it would seem God should act now. What we cannot see is that He is doing just that on our behalf; but He operates on a higher timetable, one based not on human wisdom, but mobilized by divine insight and intervention. His pledge to us is His provision for our needs. Our job in all this is to exercise faith and patience. It is hard, especially when our world seems to fall down around us. I know…but this is what He calls us to do, to walk by faith.
Dfazio, you can be assured that YES, He will supply your needs because He promises to do so. The Bible says:
The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore. (Psalm 121:5-8)
Do not stop believing this. Try your best, by His grace, not to doubt His love. He will come through for you. He will safeguard you. It seems impossible now but no situation is a loss for God: nothing is impossible with Him. "But Jesus looked at them and said to them, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible’.” (Matthew 19:26)
Dfazio–and I am speaking to myself now as well–rather than worrying over if and when God will answer your prayer, begin to praise and thank Him for already doing so. Here is the heart of faith–when our trust in the Lord Jesus Christ no longer requires immediate evidence; we believe in His answer because we believe in Him. King Jehoshaphat of Judah exemplified this principle in 2 Chronicles 20:21. At that time, his army was headed into war against the Ammonites, the Moabites, and men of Mount Sheir, a battle most expected to lose. What he did was incredible: leaning on the promises of God repeated to him by a prophet, the king sent out a temple choir to march ahead of his men. They sang and praised God all the way to the battlefield, thanking God in advance for His help; and when they arrived, they found they needn’t fight at all. The opposing armies had fought among themselves and, in so doing, destroyed their ranks. There was nothing left for Judah’s army to do but carry away the spoil left behind. Indeed, there was so much plunder it took three days to collect it. Thus, what seemed like imminent defeat became a blessing, and that is the genius of God: He is never wrong, He is *never *late, and He always comes through. Whatever is lost He will return, many times over. We need only trust Him.
God will do this for you, Dfazio. No matter how large your problem appears now, in His time He will resolve it for you. Just persist to exercise faith…And meanwhile, come here as often as you need, and we will continue to pray for you. May our Lord Jesus Christ keep you strong and envelop you with His peace.
God bless you.
Merciful Jesus, remember Dfazio and her family today. Gird them with the armor of faith and courage. Draw near and hear their petitions, and answer them according to Your will. Reassure them of Your boundless love and care.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, JESUS. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of death.
