“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1 (NIV)
There is no waiting to get God’s attention because He is present and aware of your situation and sorrows. God is your run-to place when troubles overwhelm and He is the very go-to source for the strength you need to cope. Don’t wonder too long why the God who created all things seems silent, but know He is present with a purpose and a way of escape.
Troubling times may leave us weak and even paralyzed with indecision, but our initial reaction to any woe should be to turn to the Lord for strength. As we seek solace in Him we’ll have His attentive help and we’ll have hope again.
Let’s pray today that we remain thoughtful of our Lord’s closeness and compassion to our circumstances.
