What I am getting at is that I need to just stop and seek peace and help from the Father in Heaven. I need to ask God for help and trust that He can take care of everything! So many of us think we can control life and manage our destiny. When health issues come, a flat tire, or excessive stress, how do you deal with it?
The following was a prayer that David in the Bible prayed:
Long enough, God — you’ve ignored me long enough. I’ve looked at the back of your head long enough. Long enough I’ve carried this ton of trouble, lived with a stomach full of pain. Long enough my arrogant enemies have looked down their noses at me. Take a good look at me, God, my God; I want to look life in the eye, so no enemy can get the best of me or laugh when I fall on my face. I’ve thrown myself headlong into your arms — I’m celebrating your rescue. I’m singing at the top of my lungs, I’m so full of answered prayers. Psalm 13 (MSG)
Do you have this kind of boldness in your prayers? Are you willing to talk to God like you really believe in Him? Are you celebrating your rescue? Is it time for you to stop doing and start singing at the top of your lungs?
God loves you and He is there for you no matter what you are going through!
