This world seems to be full of bad guys and sin. It almost seems like no one knows what good is anymore. You might be tempted to think that God must have forgotten all about us. But don’t be discouraged,“God is angry with the wicked every day.” Judgment will come to the wicked. The Devil is not going to win in the end.
“When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed forever” (Psalm 92:7).
God knows what is going on, and don’t worry, God will be with His people always.
“Let all those that put their trust in Thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendeth them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in Thee. For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield” (Psalm 5:11).
As you go through life, there are many problems to face. You might see dark clouds of trouble stretching as far as you can see. Don’t give up or try to face the storm by yourself. If you will just rest in Jesus, He will give you peace; and the problems won’t seem so unbearable. Everyone has troubles, but God can turn your problems into something good for you.
Like a song says,
“For if I never had a problem, I wouldn’t know that He could solve them: I wouldn’t know what faith in God could do.”
God isn’t bothered when we ask Him for help. No, He wants us to bring our troubles to Him and trust Him to see us through.
Remember in 2 Chronicles 16:7-8 how it says:
“And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said unto him,
Because thou hast relied on the king of Syria, and not relied on the Lord thy God,
therefore is the host of the king of Syria escaped out of thine hand.
Were not the Ethiopians and the Lubims a huge host, with very many chariots and horsemen?
Yet, because thou didst rely on the LORD, he delivered them into thine hand.”
Asa had asked God to help them when they had an “host of a thousand thousand and three hundred chariots” to deal with, and God smote the Ethiopians for them. But then came another problem, and Asa tried to take care of it on his own. Maybe he thought that it wasn’t a big enough problem to bother God about and that they had enough money to hire some help. But God didn’t like it and Asa had wars from then on because he relied on something else.
So let’s remember that if we will let Him, He will see us through.
