God knows what we are going through no matter how difficult our circumstances may seem. Is knowing enough though? Have you ever thought; “If He knows why doesn’t He do something?” Is He powerless to fix our problems?
No. If you read the Revelation 2:8-11 passage you see we have an enemy who wants to ruin us. He hates us. He tries to ruin our lives, but God takes those same situations that our enemy uses to try and ruin us to strengthen us and ultimately glorify Himself. Stay faithful, He knows and He cares.
8“To the angel of the church in Smyrna write:
These are the words of him who is the First and the Last, who died and came to life again. 9I know your afflictions and your poverty—yet you are rich! I know the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. 10Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life. 11He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes will not be hurt at all by the second death.
