When I’m fighting in the battle
When I’m lost and all alone
When I’m struggling in the valley
When I can’t find my way home
It is then I turn to Jesus
He’s my constant friend indeed
He will strengthen my convictions
He’ll supply my every need
Then I’ll see He’s walking with me
Then I’ll hear His blessed voice
Then I’ll know my prayer is answered
Then my soul will fill with joy
I do not have to go through life alone. Jesus said he will never leave me or forsake me. So when I come up against a trial, or when a wall blocks my way, I can turn to Him and He will always be there. This promise is made many times in His word, so I know it is true. There is no reason to doubt it. I could list all the scriptures that say he will hear me when I call, and I could list many scriptures that tell me He will answer my prayer. I am not going to do that because they can easily be found with the great internet service we all enjoy.
The struggle comes when we don’t believe them all the time. We don’t think He has answered, or that He is going to answer. When these times come, we need to ask God for wisdom because chances are He has answered, just not in the way we want Him to. His ways are higher than ours, and His thoughts greater. He always knows what is best for you and that is always what he will give. If your in a difficult situation and it seems to get worse and worse, then perhaps God is showing you just how much you can bear, how strong you really are in Him. Keep praying, keep believing, keep trusting His word. At the same time listen closely, because he may be telling you what you should do and your worries are drowning out His voice. His still, small voice is always there to guide and direct. Listen closely, and hear His answer.
Matthew 11:28 King James Version
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
