When we are going through troubled seas, it can oftentimes seem like God is nowhere around. I have been experiencing some rough trials lately, and I have been sending out an SOS to Him almost hourly. It seems like He is not hearing my distress call, although I know He is because the Scriptures guarantee it (Psalm 55:17). What is making my situation a little more bearable is that I am trying to stay focused on the "rescue ship" that I know He will send me, and not on the pain and confusion of my current troubles. I have no idea why He has not already sent rescue, but I am trying so hard to remain faithful to Him and to trust that His timing is perfect! There is no doubt I am in survival mode. But by staying focused on Him, I will survive!
Psalm 50:15 says, "Call on Me in the day of trouble, and I will deliver thee."
Father, I thank you that you are still in the miracle business. I need one right now, Lord. Help me to keep the faith, and to continue to expect deliverance, just as Your Holy Word promises. In Jesus name, Amen.
