No Matter How I Feel God Is Working
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
Do you ever feel like God does not hear you or care about you? Things are going on in life and you feel so overwhelmed and like you will never see the light at the end of the tunnel? It could be a troubled marriage, financial problems, unruly children, prodigal children,end of a job. Whatever it is God has not abandoned you.
Is your own heart right with God first of all? Psalm 66:18 reminds us "If I cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened;" . Make sure your sins are confessed and you are not harboring sins in your own heart. Sins like anger, bitterness, resentment, selfishness, and a host of others. God loves you my friend. Hang on to the rope so to speak. Do not let Satan get you down deceiving you and getting you depressed.
Start each and every day with a dose of God's word. Start today reading the book of John. I guarantee if you make this a habit your problems will diminish and you will be able to make it through.
PRAYER: Thank you Lord that you are an ever present help in times of trouble, my Bible says that. I trust you and believe you will work things out in your time. In Jesus' name. Amen.
