Scripture

"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me" - Galatians 2:20

by Dawson Elliott.

Life has its twists and turns and in moments of trials it appears that the music that once was seems to fade. Have you ever felt like this? Even as a Christian? King David is a classic example of the ‘exhibiting’ nature of human frailty, that is, playing the harp [music] when things are going smoothly and abandoning the harp [music] when circumstances come crashing down upon us leaving an aftermath of painful regret. “Lord”, we pray, “the music is fading, sustain me, bring back that music that echoes the melody of blessed assurance, you – Jesus are mine!”

Truth be told – God never abandons us – He is the all knowing God who cares and understands. His Word declares that He will not allow us to bear any trial or temptation beyond our “ability and strength” (1 Cor. 10:13):

“For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads] has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man [that is, no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear]. But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently” (AMPC).

When my wife was recently diagnosed with recurrent breast cancer, it seemed that the music was fading but God came through for us. The things we considered by knowledge, God knew by wisdom. I’ve learned in my journey with God that, “He knows best”. Whatever the outcome of any given situation and even though the music may seem to fade, God can be trusted for He knows it all.

It may be that you are experiencing a difficult time right now. May I encourage you to plunge into the Word of God. Through the Spirit’s enabling, you will be empowered to bring back the music that seems to be fading. God in Christ never leaves us nor forsakes us…..in life even in death!

Blessings.
