Do you ever feel like your problems are going to overcome you? The future issues echo in your head like the raging of the sea, leaving you feeling helpless. You feel like one issue after another crashes upon the shores of your life. The unknown future can cause anxiety. How do you overcome it?
Life can have many difficulties. Sometimes it seems the trials never end like endless waves crashing on the shore. The Psalmist was in a difficult time and we get to look inside the mind of the Psalmist and how he handled this difficult situation.
“How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You.”
Are you Thirsty?
When life seems uncertain and all logic says it’s impossible there is hope.
The Provision of the Father, Our Heart, and God’s Plan For You
We want our issues to have a quick resolution, but that is not always the case. Such is the case of the writer of Psalm 119. In verses 81-88, you see the Psalmist is weary when he says, “my soul faints for your salvation” and “my eyes fail from searching your word.” He wonders and prays how long until God comforts him. Are you growing weary from searching for answers?
How do you respond when Jesus rides into your life? When Jesus arrived in town, he went to the temple of God, and there He “drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold doves.”
What kind of what-ifs and should-haves do you have rolling around in your head? Maybe things didn’t go as you hoped they would- your dreams had the life sucked out, your friendships have gone south, and finances are in shambles. It feels like death has touched everything you once loved.
I’m learning it’s not so much about what we can accomplish and more about receiving from Him.
