About three months ago, God spoke scripture to me. All was going well; the prayers, praise, and devotions were flowing. It seemed out of context. During uncertainty, things were still going pretty good.
He had spoken the very same words over 30 years ago. It proved to be a very trying time for several years.
“Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.” (Psalms 22:11)
Years ago, I focused on “there is none to help.” Today, I know we must focus on “be not far.”
Meanwhile,- If you don’t feel like reading His Word –Read!- When you don’t want to – Praise! – If it’s difficult, and you don’t feel His Spirit– Pray!
Even when we feel so alone, we know He is not far from us.
“I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” (Hebrews 13:5)
