Why indeed? God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. God is ever loving, ever caring, and will always be by our side. The natural man (our flesh) wants to rely on our own experience in the ways of running our own life. We do things the way we want without ever praying first and asking either God’s blessing or His direction. When we don’t have those things, our actions many times put us in jeopardy, and our very lives may hang in the balance. Eventually we find that we must stand silently (not making excuses for our bad behavior, and listen for the voice of God. When we feel alone, He is there. When we are crying out because we don’t know how to relieve the despair we feel, He is there. When we feel the joy that comes with knowing, He is there.
He will always rescue us if we just cry out like Peter did when he found himself sinking. “Lord, save me! And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” (Matt 14:30-31) Cry out to Jesus, He will not fail you, He won’t shut His holy ears to your cry. He can’t. It’s not in His nature. To ignore His loved ones is impossible. There is nothing that we can do to make Him not love us.
So rest in blessed assurance that He is with you. Give your heavy burden to Him, He doesn’t mind the load. God bless you today, Dear Reader, with joy in your heart knowing you’re never alone!
