Devotional/Prayer – God is Present, even in the Difficult Times
Psalms 139: 7-12 I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me. I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night— but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.
You know often times I have felt that God is nowhere in my difficulties. I would reason that if He was there, He wouldn’t let the difficulty near me. Have you ever gone through a very difficult time and wondered where was GOD in the situation? Well, these verses tell us that God is everywhere, there is not a place He won’t come to stand with you, to strengthen you and to rescue you.
Difficult times give us the opportunity to fully trust God and His Word. These moments help us to grow and demonstrate the grace of God. The world watches how you handle these situations. Even in these seemingly trying moments, SMILE! because you have the assurance of His promises.
Today, if you are facing a difficult situation and you feel God is not there in it, meditate on His word and be comforted that He is always there.
Praying even in the Difficult Times
Heavenly Father, today I come to You, with tears of joy and adoration, believing Your Word which states that You would never leave me or forsake me. Thank you, Almighty God, that I can call upon You at anytime, knowing that You are always with me.
I continue to stand on Your promises with the assurance that You hold my life in the palm of Your hands and You have predestined me for greatness. You are always there to feed me, guide me and shield me from any difficulty I face; my cup overflows with gratitude.I stand on Your promises assured that You hold my life in the palm of Your hands.
