Sometimes Lord I’m afraid

Psalm 34_4

Sometimes Lord, when the wind blows and the skies crash, I’m afraid.  Sometimes Lord when the world squeezes me to the point of bursting, I’m afraid.  Sometimes when I allow my doubts to rise up in my mind, I’m afraid.  I’m just being honest and open Lord.  My heart hurts and I’m shaking Lord and I wonder if you see what I’m going through.

Have you ever said any of these words?  Have you cried out to God to give you help or to calm your fears?  Have you ever wondered if God even cares?  I can tell you this.  I’ve said these words.  I’ve cried out to God for help to the point of tears.  I’ve wondered where God was.  But I will also tell you this.  God never left me.  God was always close.  God heard my cries.  God moved into my situation.  And God will do the same for you.

It seems we place God into the form of a mortal man.  We cry out in prayer to a God we believe exists, but we lower our expectations as if God was a man. As if God was limited or was unable to understand.  And this leads us to believe nothing is possible.  But I tell you that nothing is IMPOSSIBLE for God.  God is not a man.  God is a supreme being.  He is the beginning and the end. The Alpha and the Omega.  He created all things that were created.  And He loved you before you were ever born so much that He sent His Son, Jesus to die for you. (John 3:16)  Yes, for you!  So that you could spend eternity with Him.

So what is the answer?  Belief is the answer.  Believe that God is who He is; the Great I Am.  So do not be afraid, the Lord is with you.  Every instant of time.  In every situation.  Believe what His Word says, “I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.”

Don’t believe me. Believe God!
