Hello everyone and welcome back to Moments Spent with God! I’m so glad that you came to join me today! I pray that you will be blessed, by these special moments that I have spent with God!
How many times do we feel cast down, within our hearts, due to a difficult situation in our lives? Sometimes it can be so easy to say…shake it off but when there is a war raging between good and evil, what can we do to help ourselves, during these overwhelming moments?
In Psalm 43:5, it says…”Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.” When moments arise, that we feel overwhelmed by a circumstance, we can feel like the verse says…”downcast” or tossed to the side, while the problem continues to beat us up. These are the moments, when the circumstance attempts to separate us, from the faith we once had in God. You see, Satan not only afflicts us but he also wiggles the “thorn” a little, so we become irritated and upset and these become the moments, when we either hang our heads or give up. Rather than allow this to happen, we need to reconnect the wires of communication with God, by focusing on the hope we can find through Him.
One thing I enjoy about King David, as I read the Psalms; is that he had his moments, when he would pour his heart out to God, with a desperate cry but after he empties himself out before God; then I see a man, whose mind becomes clear and able to press on, as he thinks back to the moments, when God had been there for him and his ancestors. Once David focuses on the good things, then he begins to praise God for the moments, when He would do the same again. Sometimes, all we need to do is regroup and start over with God. Maybe if we could take our focus away from the tragedy and do as David did, then we too would find a way to praise God, even through the most difficult moments.
Our situations in life can seem like a dense fog that attempts to keep us distant from God but when we can view our circumstances as something temporal, rather than eternal; then we will be able to see the rays of God’s light, as they shine through the fog. Like I’ve said before, no circumstance in life is ever easy but the key to hope is when we are able to give everything to God and keep our focus on Him, rather than the problem. The problems we face can allow us to feel trapped, as though the problem will last forever but when we reminisce to the times, when God has been faithful in our lives, then hope will come alive again, as we trust God for His best.
Blessings on your day…
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
