#SheSharesTruth | Psalm 38 | He WILL Come!

"He WILL Come"

How many times do we find ourselves in a place of despair? Sickness, financial difficulties, relationships with others, attacks from the enemy, and situations created by our own sin can lead us to a place that makes us feel that all is lost, that the burden is just too much to bear. We may find ourselves wanting to give up - just lay down and quit. 

This exactly the time to run like crazy to our Father and beg for His help, His intervention, His strength, His mercy.

Maybe our despair is caused by something we did. A sin we committed. Guilt is a heavy burden. The shame can even affect us physically, maybe even make us sick. Maybe all we want to do is duck our heads in shame and hide.

That is NOT what we should do!

Do not despair. Plead to God for help. Ask for His forgiveness and confess our sins. Turn to God. Seek after Him.

Wait for God.
He WILL answer!

"But for you, O Lord, do I wait; 
it is you, O Lord my God who will answer."
Psalm 38:15 ESV

Life may be a mess. Everything may feel like it's falling apart. You may feel abandoned or like others have turned on you, but don't despair. Whatever the circumstances, whatever might be causing the despair, cling to God.

He will not abandon you.

  1. Love your post! Waiting on God is easier said than done, but He is never early and is never late, but always on time. Waiting produces the growth in us. I needed this reminder this morning :)

  3. Wonderful reminder! God really IS for us, we have to fight back the lie that he will leave us now that we have messed up. If God was ready to give up on us because of our foolish choices then the plan of salvation through Jesus, the hope we have in his death to cover our sins, wouldn't have happened. Freedom comes in walking in the light, because once you step into the light Satan can't attack you with shame. I love what James says about confession being the key to heal (perhaps soul not body) "Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective."James 5:13-16
