In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me.
Are you stressed out, frustrated, tired of waiting, feeling as though you are drowning, wondering where God is and on the verge of just throwing in the towel and giving up? Maybe you are just one of those things and haven’t quite gotten to all the rest. Wherever you are, God is there! He does care and He will hear your cries for help and He will deliver you!
This verse is for you today: For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 Tell Him about it today! Tell Him how frustrated you are! Pour your heart out to Him and expect Him to answer you and deliver you!
No matter what it is you are facing, your hope will always be found in Him, so don’t give up! Psalm 42:11 says, “Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.” Know that “this too shall pass”! It didn’t come to stay ~ it came to pass! This situation you are facing will not last forever as hard as that may seem to grasp right now in the heat of it all! God loves you and He will carry you through.
I know some of you face dangerous situations as well as frustrating, please let me encourage you to listen for His quiet voice and allow Him to move and guide you. As you do that, keep this verse close Psalm 91:4, “He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and buckler.” He is always right there with you!
My prayer today is that whatever you may be facing, that God will show Himself mighty in your life! I am also praying that you will seek Him with your whole heart and that you will have the strength to hold on! One last verse to close with, Isaiah 40:31, “but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” The best is yet to come!
