Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
And Your glory above all the earth.
That Your beloved may be delivered,
Save with Your right hand, and answer me!
Life’s situations can be downright overwhelming and discouraging to the point of panic. As Christians we are not exempt from life, circumstances, or emotions. Sometimes all we can do is cry out and hang on. But if we have first bowed before the Lord our God our Maker, spent time in His presence, are living a life of moral purity before Him, and are walking with Jesus daily then we are better able to handle the “Oh No’s”, “Oops”, and “Ah Oh’s” of life.
Author and theologian Ian Maclaren put it this way, “Those who know the path to God can find it in he dark.” In other words, when we have spent time with God in the good times when we can see clearly, then we can find God in the hard times when the situation is muddy. Know God. Trust His love for you. Walk in His ways. Then cry out for deliverance and He is a faithful God!
Will He do everything that you want the way you want it? Probably not. But that is what makes Him God. He knows the big picture for your life and for eternity. Trust Him.
