Psalm 34:17, 19 – The righteous cry out and the Lord hears and delivers them out of all of their troubles. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
The Bible tells us that, if we go to God with our problems, He will take care of them. it tells us that God will deliver us out of ALL of them. It did not say that we would NOT have any problems or that we would have a FEW problems – the Bible says we will have MANY, but that God will deliver us from ALL OF THEM. The Bible does not tell us that we will not have problems; it tells us how to REACT in the midst of them.
Psalm 34:18 – The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart.
That is why we are urged to call on the name of the Lord when we are in trouble. God’s eyes sees your need. God’s ears hear your prayers and God is near you when your heart is broken. Scripture tells us, He is our strength in time of trouble. He says “Come unto Me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest.
Psalm 40:1, 2 – “I waited patiently for the Lord; and He heard my cry. He also brought me out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay and set my feet upon a rock.”
What a change takes place when we wait on the Lord. When we wait on Him, he takes us from a pit to a highway; from miry clay to a rock; from crying to singing. And tells us, “everything will be alright.”
The Bible tells us to “wait on the lord and be of good cheer.” It tells us to wait on the Lord and be of good cheer in whatever it is we are going through. The Bible tells us to “delight in the Lord and He will give us the desire of our heart.” It tells us that if we seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness all the things we need will be added to us. It tells us not to grow weary in well doing because in due season we will reap if we do not give up.
It tells us to run and not be weary, to walk and not faint. It says, “fear not, I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. For I, the Lord your God will hold your right hand saying to you, ‘fear not, I will help you'”
Psalm 34:1 – I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
No matter how impossible your circumstances may seem; no matter how high those mountains in your life appear to be, no matter how impossible that dream in your heart seem to be, if you will sincerely praise God, He will move into that situation and change it.
Nahum 1:7 – The Lord is good. When trouble comes, He is the place to go. And He knows everyone who trust in Him.
Don’t let your eyes get fixed on the problems or circumstances you are facing, because with God’s help you can go around any obstacle and you can overcome any problem.
Matthew 11:28 – Come unto me, all you that labor and are heaven laden and I will give you rest.
Come unto Me the Lord says, and I will give you rest. Rest from your trials. Rest from your cares. Rest from your sorrows.
Psalm 23:5 – You prepare a table before me in the presence of mine enemies.
When God helps us, He does not do it in secret. He does it in the open, where all, including our enemies can see.
Proverbs 3:5 – Trust in the Lord with all your heart: and lean not unto your own understanding.
Don’t try to understand or try to figure out how God’s going to help you – just trust Him to do so. We hinder God when we try to help Him solve our problems. IF WE COULD DO IT – WHY DID WE ASK HIM?
