No one is immune to life's toils, trials and hardships. Look around and depression looms. Division, destruction, chaos and confusion, the list goes on... are everywhere.
As situations started to bring me down today, and I admit I even put on my grumpy pants for a while... I kept giving thoughts of circumstances & situations to the Lord in prayer... continuously.
Softly & gently His Spirit reminded me of David's psalm.
Psalm 42:11 KJV — Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
It wasn't that I forgot how BIG GOD IS, but rather lost my focus for a bit. Keeping our eyes, hearts and minds upon Him makes all the difference! What we face, encounter, hear of and go through has zero, zilch, nada, no affect on who He is and what He is capable of.
Though nothing "changed" around me or for me, not around the world or even in my family, friends, health or the world, my hope restored within me did! He is worthy of our praise in the midst of it all nd especially in the depths of disappointments! He is still God and we cannot bark commands at Him.
Even if things look impossible, will you trust in and focus on the God of the possible?
