Difficult Times

I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Matthew 16:19 

Have you ever felt as though God has forsaken you? Well, if you have, you’re not alone. In fact, you are in very good company. Not only do millions of other people feel that way right now, but Jesus felt that way at one time too. At the lowest point in His life, Jesus said “My God my God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Matthew 27:46). 

We all have difficult times; Times when we feel all alone and abandoned. But the truth is we aren’t. God is with us to help us when we call upon Him. In the midst of these times, we don’t have to be controlled by our negative emotions. We can resist them by praying and knowing the truth of what God’s Word says about them. 

The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Psalm 34: 17-18 

Dear Lord, help me to live in Your joy and peace. Give me strength and understanding to resist anxiety, anger, unrest, envy, depressions, bitterness, hopelessness, loneliness, fear, and guilt. Rescue me when “my spirit is overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is distressed” (Psalm 143:4).

 In Jesus name I pray
