Phillips some years ago wrote a book entitled, Your God is Too Small. Hell, I offer to make people money for free, draw up a simple, clearly workable business plan, offer to help out. Why did he do that to his only son? He proposed that Sarai pose as his sister, so that he would not be killed. God has answered many of my prayers and will continue to do so. She was as sadly deficient in faith as he himself on this occasion. But it is a clear picture of where God is in the midst of suffering whether we can see Him or not. The moment your thoughts go back to it you feel it -- that unceasing anguish of heart.
Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners will be converted to You. The problem just brought depression, shame and pain. Your story reveals your ache and hardship. Abram believed God would give him a land, a seed, and a blessing. As Paul has argued already, they were not all necessarily saved by that, by any means, but Jacob would forever stand for what God wants men to be, and Esau would forever stand as a symbol of what he does not like. You never come on -- Paul never does -- with accusations, or with bitter words, or denunciations, or even with the issues that separate you.
So Abram went up from Egypt to the Negev, he and his wife and all that belonged to him; and Lot with him. I have come into the deep waters; the floods engulf me. I praise him everyday with a overflowing heart. The more you thread a needle the easier it is to accomplish the next time you need to sew something. He let me understand that His ways are higher than mine that not all my questions be answered but He is always there to give me strength and help me sustain in every circumstances in life.

Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of Christ, who is God over all, forever praised! It includes, in some mysterious way, our necessity to be confronted with those promises, and to give a willing and voluntary submission to them.
When the test, the trial or the temptation comes, you can overcome. He is able to deliver His people from situations which appear to demand a sinful response. These are temporary afflictions and not to be compared with the weight of eternal glory. I look at people around me, in church, at work, my family, everywhere, somehow they seem to have grasped the meaning of life, they go to work, they have friends, they come to church, and they are content. I feel let down because the very things I have been crying out for like trusting more, not getting a hard heart thank God it is still not too hard and giving or helping me to find the will to keep doing this and seemingly gone unanswered.
When Everything Seems to Fail by Tom Stewart February 12, 2004 When everything seems to fail, our innermost being knows. Fast and pray, Gods time is the best, he is always there, and my favorite, he loves you, always, no matter what. God didn't hate Esau, in the sense we usually employ that word. It sounds as though He has blessed you with a good job and family and so on. He was revealing His heart to me. If I didnt get into the medical school of my choice, if I didnt have a job, if I didnt have a family, if I didnt have money, or food to eat, or a room I can call home, if I didnt have any of these, then I could join other people suffering and I could really then have faith that Gods plan is the best.

Get mad at yourself, someone else, God Himself. Then make it right with God and with man, if necessary. Maybe he was placing too much dependancy on this? Gratitude evokes grace like the voiceand echo. God taught Abram the painful lesson that the possibilities for the future are more numerous than we can predict.
