It is easy to claim to be anything when things are going well. Some people are great Christians until the first trial comes along. In the sports world, there are people who only pull for a winner. We call them fair weather fans. You have surely noticed that some will claim you as a friend until you have a problem, and then they are no where to be found. There is a blessing in abandonment and it goes like this: When we find that there is nothing left but God, only then do we find that He is all we need. How about some scripture support. He says it better than anyone!
Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.
AMEN & AMEN
