Bible Ballistics: “BBs” #26
What do we do when we’re walking in obedience to Jesus and everything seems to fall apart? Many are struggling with unexpected trials, crises and family turmoil. Things that make us question, doubt and sometimes cry out in total desperation; “Help????” “What’s going on?????”
We’ve all been there at one time or another. What do we do when the pressure comes? In these times we must depend on what we ‘KNOW’, not what we ‘feel’. Where is relief to be found? The Psalms are replete with questions about crisis, and cries of desperation. Let’s look at one such passage, Psalm 121:1-3 today, and we’ll finish the Psalm on Friday.
‘1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.’
We must keep our eyes looking heavenward to God. Some put a question mark here and then take the rest of the Psalm as the answer. Either way our only real help isn’t available in this ‘world’.
‘2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.’
The God who created us knows how to help, and will lead us in/through all things, especially our trials, if we’ll but look to Him.
1 Cor. 10:13b, (God)“will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
God will provide!!
‘3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.’
Remember, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord….”, Psalm 37:24. God has us in HIS hands! We can trust Him—even when we don’t understand what is going on.
So??? Here’s our shot for the day!! Trouble? Look up—call on God?
So??? Jesus is working “all things…for good..to them that love God…”.
So love God,
trust God and
press on in faith.
