When you’re going through trials… everyday can seem like the end of the world. But when your spirits get low, encourage yourself! Each day, be reminded that GOD has not forgotten you… nor will He ever forget you. Whatever you endure, remember too, that GOD’s care is certain, His love is unfailing, and His promises are secure. Sure you might feel a little down sometimes… a little lonely here and there… or broken from time to time; but see GOD in it… so you can see enemy working against you. Then, you won’t be so distraught when things happen to you… and you will know how to better handle each situation you go through.
Sometimes, when you’re at your lowest point… it can actually be the best moment of your life. Because that’s when GOD works best… when you’re broken! GOD searches for people who are hurt, broken, lonely, confused and overlooked. He says to them, “They that wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength.” And if you can believe what GOD says… you’ve already taken care of half the problem… just by believing.
So, put everything you’re going through… on the table of prayer before GOD. Pray the prayer of faith… and believe He will move for you. Then wait patiently as GOD sorts out the details of how He will fix the situations. The battle does not belong to you… you are just at the center of the battle between GOD and Satan. Since GOD Himself went through major sufferings of His own during His earthly ministry … He knows what it’s like when you suffer … and He is wonderfully able to help you.
You Are Not Alone! In the midst of unspeakable sorrow, GOD is with you. Even if you don’t feel Him near, GOD is there. He promises to never leave you alone. Therefore, wherever you are, GOD is. He is with you before, during, and after “the storm,” never losing sight of you, or your suffering. Even as you ponder how you will begin picking up the pieces of your life, GOD is there… loving you beyond understanding, holding you up, and making a way where it seems there is no way. All you have to do is… Reach out to Him. GOD will wrap His loving arms around you. Then you can curl up in His love… and rest.
