These are stressful times. I pray that you will not bend, buckle or bow to the pressure surrounding you daily. I know that you did not see or expect this change coming but one thing is sure, you will get through this. God always delivers His people. II Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” This is a promise from God that is still true today. He promised to heal the land. You can still trust God to do what He said He would do.
Things are a lot different now than ever before. Do not let your faith in God waver one bit. Just think about it. The little birds are also living through these tough times. God feeds the birds every day. These times help us to open our hearts so that the King of Glory can come in. Psalm 24:7,8 says, “Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.” I know that you trust Him. Let Him see your heart. Watch what He will do. Proverbs 3:5,6 says, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” God has an answer to every troubling place as you arrive. He is at work building bridges for you to cross every place of trouble in your life.
A young girl, unaccustomed to traveling, was taking a train ride through the country, and it happened that in the course of the day her train was obliged to cross two branches of a river and several wide streams. The water seen in advance always awakened doubts and fears in the child. She did not understand how it could safely be crossed. As they drew near the river, however, a bridge appeared, and furnished a way over. Two or three times the experience was repeated, and finally the child leaned back with a long breath of relief and confidence.
“God has put bridges for us all the way!” she said in trusting content.
That is life. We fear so many evils, so many troubles look dark ahead, so many difficulties seen insurmountable as they loom before us; but as we advance along our way we find that there is a way already made through them. God has built bridges for us all along the way. Jesus is our bridge over all troubled waters. —-Source: American Messenger, 1922
