Scriptures: Psalm 38:8-9 8I am feeble and severely broken; I groan because of the turmoil of my heart. 9Lord, all my desire is before You; And my sighing is not hidden from You. (NKJV)
Nugget: Sometimes we have so much going on & so much that we’re facing that all we can do is call out to God. During these times, it’s when we’ve most likely reached our limits regarding what we can handle & all that we’re facing. Yes, these times are very challenging & test every bit of our being, but the good thing is, God is ever present in our time of help.
What I’ve learned during these times, is not to go to everyone first & then seek God. God shouldn’t be my last stop on the road to me seeking answers & peace. I’ve learned to call on Him first. Of course, He may send answers & direction from other people, but the thing is, He would’ve led me to these individuals after seeking Him for answers.
What are you seeking? Have you looked everywhere else first? Have your desires, troubles, sighs, groaning, etc. been placed before God? Seek Him in all you do.
