“Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; He rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for Him!” Isaiah 30: 18
Having faith in God means trusting Him in all of life’s difficulties. When Judah turned to other nations for help against their enemies, God warned them that it would do no good. Only He could save them. The same is true for believers today. When troubles come, our first instinct is to look around to others or other sources for help. We check our bank balances, we solicit advice from our friends and professionals or we attempt to soldier through them alone leaning to our own understanding. As Christians, our first instinct should be prayer. Find a quiet spot and pray to God for direction. Man can provide a temporary solution. Only God provides permanent, ongoing solutions based upon His will for your life. Our vision is limited, God’s isn’t. What you may think will solve your problems, God knows it won’t. God doesn’t want to merely apply a bandage to our cuts and bruises; he wants to heal them. Trust Him today in your struggles.
God bless you today and always.
