Have you ever been hit so hard that you feel all alone and even God Himself can’t fix the problem?
LaRue and I have felt like running many times. When we have let each other down, when other people let us down, when we think it just can’t be fixed---- when our 29-year-old son died suddenly in a fire.
Jesus told his disciples “Do You finally believe? In fact, you're about to make a run for it—saving your own skins and abandoning me.”
Haven’t we all been conned into abandoning the Lord? Failing to just believe Him when “bad” events happen. Sometimes we become so afraid we feel powerless, unloved and can’t think straight enough to turn to Jesus.
Are you going through a tough time? The only safe place is wrapped in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ. He has been there, He understands, and has never failed to deliver on even one of His promises. We live in a troubled world but Jesus tells us to be of good cheer, because “He has overcome the world”. Unyielding spiritual fortitude is what He offers and what we need.
He left us His Word, His Spirit and Constant Intersession for us so we can be unshakable, assured, and deeply at peace.
