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?
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.
Lord, 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.
These verses (Psalms 139:7-12) remind 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 God’s promises.
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.
You are always there to feed me, guide me and shield me from any difficulty I face. My cup overflows with gratitude.
Dealing with Difficult Situations
Lord, you have taken me through many trying situations and I know that you will take me triumphantly through this one. Grant me the Godly wisdom to know how to deal with this situation and with the difficult people involved. Give me the words to write and say. Bless me with the timing to know when to speak and when to just listen.
Thank you, Abba Father, my Lord and my God. In Jesus’ wonderful and powerful name, Amen!
