1-I love the LORD, who listened to my voice in supplication, 2-Who turned an ear to me on the day I called. LORD, my GOD, Thy will be done.”
When struggles, heartaches and pain shows up in our lives, it is easy to be tempted to become hardened and bitter in our hearts, but we don’t have to be for we have a GOD who bids us to come as often as needed to His throne of grace and mercy where we can find the help we need to continue on in a life of faith and trust in Him.
As hurtful and as angry as you may be right now with your situation and possibly with GOD, there is a better way to respond to your test and trials and that is through prayer and supplications with thanksgiving, because, in spite of what you may be going through, you are still here and the opportunity for peace and rest is still available to you even in the storms of life if you would just seek the Lord our GOD as the psalmist did.
When the troubles of life that are guaranteed to come our way comes, we must remember that GOD is the same GOD who helped us in the past and He is able to do it again because He is faithful. What was true about GOD prior to our storm is still true right now. He changes not for scripture declares that CHRIST JESUS is the same yesterday, today and forever. Hope is being given and made available today to all who would trust and believe that “EVERY WORD” of GOD is true.
Today is the day to trust the LORD, for indeed, “true rest” for our weary souls is found in Him alone. As painful as the test and trials of life are, when we have gone through them, we are stronger and wiser now more than ever before we went through our tests.
Remember this as you go through the valleys of life that there is not light at the end of the tunnel, but that there is light “IN” the tunnel as you pass through for if not, the enemy would have consumed you. It is because of the LORD’s mercy, even in our suffering that the enemy has not consumed us. GOD’s mercy is new every day.
Remember: The Lord GOD is a prayer answering GOD! Seek Him today. Not only is He listening to hear from you, He knows you and the very thing that troubles you.
Thank You, Lord JESUS, for answering my prayers! You are a good and faithful GOD, there is none like You; I rejoice in Your Name all the days of my life…May You always be at the center of my life. I desire to honor you daily as I pray Your will be done in my life for Your glory alone in the majestic Name of JESUS. Amen.
Praying For You,
