|It is a personal relationship between YOU and HIM.|
The most important thing to remember is that if you have made Jesus, your personal Lord and Savior - that you are in a "personal" relationship with HIM. Your relationship is with HIM. Relationships stretch and grow and at times there are times when you will experience "growing pains" - Job didn't know WHY he was experiencing what he was experiencing, he could have allowed it to make him walk away from God. But he didn't. We may not know the WHY of what we go through, and we may feel as though we are alone - but we are not. Jesus said:
"I will never leave nor forsake you." (Hebrews 13:5)
“What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us. Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:31-39)
Focus on Him, listen to Him. Grow in Him. As Peter did, keep your eyes focused on the Lord and you will *not* sink. You will walk on the waters of life and no wind will blow you down. And if by chance you do take your eyes off Jesus, He will be quick to grab your hand. He knows who belongs to Him. He loves you. He cares. He's there.
