Cling to God’s outstretch hand
Life can get painful at times. But amid your troubles, God’s outstretched comforting hand is always there for you to hold. Still, the choice is yours. Nobody is ever beyond His reach.
Psalm 63:8 (NIV) Bible Gateway
I cling to you;
your right hand upholds me.
Whatever you are going through today, do not allow your circumstance to overwhelm you. Jesus knows your problem, and in due time He will lift you out of your mire clay. Take a tip from Job. When he was going through difficult life-changing circumstances, he never stops praying.
Isaiah 43:2: When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you go through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not get scorched, and the flames will not set you ablaze.
“You, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, and You are the potter. We are all the work of your hand,” (Isaiah 64:8).
When life gets messy, and you do not know what to do or where to turn, do not panic Look to Jesus instead. He is bigger than the mess. In John 14:6 He said:
“I am the way the truth and the life…”
“The LORD, your God, is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.” –Zephaniah 3:17
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” –Isaiah 40:28-31
When life throws a curve ball in our direction, we instinctively call on God for help. But sometimes our most difficult moments can become doorways to a deeper relationship with Him.
Psalm 86: 6-7, “Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; And attend to the voice of my supplications. In the day of my distress, I will call upon You, because you will answer me.”
