If things are falling apart…

2 March 2024 ‘God is…always ready to help in times of trouble.’ Psalm 46:1 NLT

When your plans are failing and everything in life seems to be going wrong, you can lose your sense of security, your peace of mind, and your ability to sleep. It can even affect your family and friends. If that’s where you feel you are today, read these words: ‘God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.’ Clear your mind for a moment and think about this: everything you have belongs to God. He knows everything about you. He’s the author, and you’re the main character in your personal story. So when trouble comes, you have the right (and the responsibility) to go to Him for help in turning things around for you. When nobody else was catching fish, Jesus told the disciples where to find a boatload of them. The Bible says that there’s nothing too hard for God (see Jeremiah 32:27), and that includes the problem you’re facing and the situation you’re in right now. The writer of Proverbs says, ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take’ (Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT). And He can guide you through the advice of a friend, a family member, a tutor, or a mentor: ‘Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many advisers bring success’ (Proverbs 15:22 NLT). Sometimes this calls for changing your mindset, ideas, or attitude – and that takes courage and commitment. But if you have committed to building your life on a foundation of integrity, fairness, compassion, and service, you can confidently go to God in times of trouble, ask for His help, and know that you’ll receive it.
