When you have to dig deep to achieve a task, to endure, to survive another day, to heal or, to lift your spirit when the odds are against you and no one wants to take your calls. Where do you find help.?
David in the book of 1 Samuel tells us that he found his help, strength and encouragement in the Lord. When David was in deep trouble, the scriptures tells us:
“And David was greatly distressed; for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God”
You may be in some difficulty today – trouble on all sides perhaps. Be encouraged that that your help comes from the Lord. When trouble comes we cannot see all the possible solutions. Pray and trust that God is on your side. David left us some inspiring words of courage where, he sought the “shelter” of the Lord on many occasions. For example:
I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth. (Psalm 121: 1-2)
We don’t know how things will turn out. But God does. He is outside of time (and indeed, is the author and architect of time) so he knows what’s up. He has got your back and has you protected on every side.
“The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in, from this time forth and forevermore. (Psalm 121: 1-8).
God will not forsake or forget you.
