Lord Have Mercy
"Lord have mercy" is such a cliché statement that we use in everyday jargon but have you ever had a conversation with someone and felt like you immediately needed to go pray for mercy on that persons life for saying or feeling a certain way???
I had one of those moments recently where someone commented that they wish God would "show up" for them on a personal circumstance that in their opinion continues to plague their life. I know the persons situation pretty intimately and from my outside viewpoint God has shown up many times to provide for this person over this problem.
It broke my heart to hear this person say something like this because it honestly made me cringe to think how God might continue to test and withhold blessings on this situation until they become appreciative of all the times He has provided and pulled them through. I have learned from experience that God is not going to bless a situation if you are resentful and unappreciative of the things you have been given and where you are in life with or without all your prayers being answered.
If you think God is withholding something from you or your are not blessed in a certain area....consider he may not trust you with the circumstance yet. He may be trying to teach or protect you from something!
I pray that we all realize God wants to bless us beyond our earthly comprehension but we have to submit our circumstances to him and be proud, gracious and submitted to His journey for our life.
