Faith in any situation

In our daily life, we come across many situations in which some can be handled and some may not be handled. Most of the times, we lose our hope or faith in God when the situations arise that cannot be handled by us. Job 2:9-10 His wife said to him, “Are you still holding on to your integrity? Curse God and die!” He replied, “You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?” In all this, Job did not sin in what he said.  For example, when we lost our job or a best-friend or dear ones suffering from a disease, we immediately think why it is happening to me only? Where is the God? Why the God did allowed these painful situations in my life? So on...... Even if we are standing strong in God, like Job's wife, other people or situations may distract our faith in God. So we should always be with God, no matter what happens.

 Matthew 14:28-33
“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came towards Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshipped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.” 

Just like Peter asked Jesus to show a sign that it’s him, we also ask Jesus to show some miracles in our life to prove that he is the Son of God. When we ask something to provide or help in some situations, God will definitely help us if it is not against the word of God. We should remember that God wants to see his children always as a head but not as a tail.
Job 42:12-13 The Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the first. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand donkeys. And he also had seven sons and three daughters. 
We may get some problems in our life but we should never doubt on God’s love. In those situations, we should have a strong faith on God. If God allowed some problems in our life means that is only to allow us to grow spiritually or to achieve better life. When it is in the ground, diamond is only a rock. But when it is heated under several degrees of temperature, it turns into diamond. Same way, if God allowed some problems in our life means, by going through those problems, we may rectify our errors or grow strong spiritually. Like God blessed Job abundantly, he will bless us also. The only thing we should do is, stand for the God’s word whatever the situation is. When Peter asked Jesus to save him, Jesus saved Peter. In the same way, we also should ask God for his help. We should confess to God about all of our sin. Then Jesus will definitely forgive us and save us. 

Romans 10:9-11 That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame. " There are no barriers for God’s love. He will never see which country we belong to, which job we are doing or how rich we are? Everyone is same in the God’s eyes.
