The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time. For the Lord protects the bones of the righteous; not one of them is broken! Calamity will surely destroy the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be punished. But the Lord will redeem those who serve him. No one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.”
Psalms 34:17-22 NLT
Are you bent beneath life's crushing load? Are circumstances in your life overwhelming? Look to Jesus! Give all your burdens to the Lord. If you are His child, He is especially attentive to your cry. He watches your life and actively moves on your behalf. “The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.... 2 Chronicles 16:9 NLT God wants to intervene in your situation because He is your Father. He wants more for you than you want for yourself.
“So don’t be afraid, little flock. For it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom.” Luke 12:32 NLT You must remember that the temporary status of this life is but a moment. The eternal kingdom is yours. Look ahead child of God. Don't doubt in the darkness what God has revealed in the light. Discouragement is a primary weapon of the devil. If he can convince you that God has somehow forgotten you or isn't paying attention, you fall prey to defeat. God is our refuge and strength. “God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.” Psalms 46:1 NLT Run to God, not away from Him. His arms are outstretched and He wants to pull you into His bosom to cradle you in his arms of love. The rest you need is in Him. Fall into His arms of love and mercy and let Him hold you today. He understands every intimate detail of your situation. Even when no one else knows, or fully understands, He does. Give your burden to Him! “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” 1 Peter 5:7 NLT
