VOTD-April 27

Isaiah 40:27-30

"Why would you ever complain, O Jacob, or, whine, Israel, saying, 'God has lost track of me.  He doesn't care what happens to me'?  Don't you know anything?  Haven't you been listening?  God doesn't come and go.  God lasts.  He's Creator of all you can see or imagine.  He doesn't get tired out, doesn't pause to catch his breath.  And he knows everything, inside and out.  He energizes those who get tired, gives fresh strength to dropouts.  For even young people tire and drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall."

aren't we so quick to just assume God doesn't care when the slightest thing goes wrong?  how far off the mark we are in those moments.  we expect and easy, laid back life.  how quickly we forget there's an enemy out there, seeking to destroy us.  no, God doesn't forget.  he lasts.  he orchestrates only that which is good.  unfortunately we tend to take out our frustrations on those we love and that are closest to us, and God is no exception.  how this must hurt God when we "blame" Him for things he is not responsible for.  let's change our perspective friends.
