Ephesians 6:13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. NASB
I stand in the middle of my dilemma and I ask myself, have I done everything. In my mind it seems I have left something undone, missed something, but I do not know what.
By faith I seem to have all the answers but I live in this world and in it not all answers come by faith. I know this of a truth because if it were not so, then none who believe by faith would suffer.
We do suffer and hurt while we stand by helpless as others suffer. Trust God. Yes, but have I done everything? I feel like I have not but my feelings are flesh, weak and fallible.
I doubt I am alone in this. I could pray more. I could pray better. Sadly I do not trust the quality of my prayers for the sound like a whiner and a complainer more than one who praises and is thankful.
Psalms 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
It is hard to be thankful and bless while those you love suffer. I guess I want to blame someone and I cannot blame God, so I look to my own actions.
It is my armor but I am not the one being attacked.
Lord, please, tell me what you would have me do so that I might know I have done everything. Amen
