When the heart fails
Focus: Psalms 73:26 - KJV
26. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
1 Samuel 30:1-8
There are times in life when one is devastated by happenings. Times when the world appears to be crumbling over the top of one’s head making it seem like the end is definitely at hand. Times when relatives and friends change briskly to becoming foes and nay-sayers. Times when it seems there is nothing more to do. Times when one feels like throwing in the towel. At such times, there is only one direction to look. Up! That is why David wrote in the Psalms about lifting up the eyes to the hills to seek help. When the help of man wanes and there is no one to turn to, there is always hope in the Lord, the God of the heavens and the earth. Even when your mother through whom you came into the world abandons you, there is a Person who has promised never to leave nor forsake you. To Him alone you can turn in the time of your devastation. David had the same experience. His wives and those of his lieutenants were taken as spoils of war. When the problem glared them in the face, they wept in their devastation. Although David too was affected in the devastation and was also weeping, it had no difference to his followers who felt like and were going to stone him for their loss. But David encouraged himself in the Lord, sought His face for help and strength and he got it.
You can also look up to God today in that seeming insurmountable situation and have the Lord come through for you. If only you will turn to Him for help now and stop grueling over the situation, you will surely see the glory of God.
SOLUTION: The way out is not in grumbling or sulking but in seeking the help of God. He knows what we do not. Seek His face now without further delay.
The Lord will show forth in your situation to return smiles and laughter to your face in Jesus’ name. Everything that the enemy has affected in your life shall be restored and replaced in the name of Jesus. The enemy will not cause you to be dipped ever again in Jesus name. Cheer up! God has taken it over.
