YOU ARE NOT ALONE! In the midst of unspeakable sorrow, or when you do not feel Him near, GOD is there. He promises never to 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. Reach out for Him today. He is a present help in times of trouble.
When it seems as if your life and everything around you is at its lowest… it can actually be the best moment of your life. Actually, that is when GOD works best – when you are broken! GOD searches for people who are:
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.
Put everything you are 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 sort out the details of how He will fix the situations.
Doubt is a device from the enemy. “BUT GOD” – being the Gentleman He is… offers us love, hope, peace, eternal life, etc… in return for our love for Him. Satan – the devil – however, mocks everything GOD does… and pretends to offer the same thing, but his offerings are artificial. What he offers, is what leaves us feeling hurt, lonely, broke, confused and misunderstood.
The Bible says, “And it was necessary for Jesus to be like us, his brothers, so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God, a Priest who would be both merciful to us and faithful to God … For since He himself has now been through suffering … He knows what it is like when we suffer … and He is wonderfully able to help us.” Whatever we endure, His care is certain, His love is unfailing, and His promises are secure.
What it all means is this, GOD HAS NOT FORGOTTEN YOU! Sure, you might feel a little down sometimes… a little lonely here and there… or broken from time to time; but if you ever notice… all of these things come and go, and try to come back again. However, see GOD in it… so you can see Satan in it. Then, you will not be so distraught when things happen to you… and you will know how to handle each situation you go through.
