How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings. Psalm 36:7
David was a very spiritual man. God said "a man after my own heart." He admitted feelings of loneliness and expressed them through writing and song, in his psalms. The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone." (Genesis 2:18)` The reality is there are so many people struggling through life to make sense of it all. There are tons of people who have gone through a divorce and heart ache, some with the same story that you or I might have. I think what happens is when we go through hard times, somehow we feel like we are the only one going through it. We tend to feel like no one else has been through this or even see the vulnerable places of our heart and can relate to what’s going on in your life. This may be true, but even so, we still have God on our side, and He is the one who really matters. God wants us to trust Him. He does provide for those who put their trust in Him. When He wanted to provide for Abraham, He tested his faith by asking him to sacrifice his only son (we know that God did not spare his own son for our salvation). God wants us to trust Him. He does provide for those who put their trust in Him. When He wanted to provide for Abraham, He tested his faith by asking him to sacrifice his only son (we know that God did not spare His own son for our salvation). My favorite preacher put like this: "Faith is not believing in God in spite of evidence but it is obeying in spite of consequences."
Christians still count on their own ability, and when in trouble, they get discouraged if they are unable to see a way out. They burden or worry time and again and finally, in absolute frustration and when they have done all they know to do, they finally throw up their hands and declare that it's now "in God's hands?" Friend, God should not be your last resort. God will really provide for those who trust in and understand that He is indeed Jehovah Jireh. God can do all things. "For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist" Colossians 1:16-17. As believers in Christ, you and I must trust the Lord. When troubles come, we must trust that God it all under control and that He has our best interest at heart. The True Believer does not ask why he should trust God; instead, he asks, "How can I trust God more fully?" The true believer does not ask why this and that has happened or haven’t happened to me, he instead invite God to use him as He sees fit.
God loves us and wants to help us with ALL our problems. All we have to do is let Him. Even our minor concerns matter to Him. He wants to help. He wants to be in our lives. We need to read and meditate on the Word to know God better. We can only trust someone we know.
"The fear of man brings a snare: but whoever puts his trust in the LORD shall be safe" (Proverbs 29:25)
Praise the Lord!
