Hey, Doug Dial here with two or three minutes of hope.
♫ God will make a way, where there seems to be no way.
♫ He works in ways we cannot see, He is watching over me.
♫ He will be my guide, hold me closely to His side,
♫ With love and strength, for each new day, God will make a way.
Have you ever almost lost your mind? Freak out? You know what I mean. Riding right up to the very edge of the cliffs of insanity. It feels like there is absolutely no way out. Come on now, if you’re not going to be honest, we will shut this thing down right now. And I mean it. Let’s be real. Sometimes fear grips our hearts and we are terrorized. What am I gonna do? What if I lose my job? What if my spouse leaves me? What if the doctor’s report comes back and the tests show … what if, what if, what if?
Men and women in the Bible could not hide who they were. Story after story tells us of their humanity. ALL the Bible characters in the Bible that were human were … human. More than one was found to be depressed and in despair. Hey, you cannot be rescued from a pit of despair if you’re not IN the pit of despair. Is anybody in a pit of misery and hopelessness right now? Don’t hide it. Don’t be afraid to admit it. Be honest in your confession.
The Psalmist declared: You love me so much and you placed your greatness upon me. You rescued me from the deepest place of darkness, and you have delivered me from a certain death. Psalm86:13
It sounds to me like somebody experienced what are you and I may be going through right now.
Despair. Heartache. On the brink. Desperate and in need!
Let me ask you a question.
When did God part the Red Sea? No, I’m not looking for a month and a year. But when?
When they were about a day away so the ground would be good and dry? NO!
When they were within eyesight so they could see the miracle ahead of time and wouldn’t have to fear? NO!
The enemy was breathing down their necks and they were FILLED with fear. God waited until the very last second to deliver them. So often in our desperation and in a dark, dank hole is when God comes through and saves the day!
♫ You can’t hurry God, oh no! You just have to wait.
♫ You’ve got to trust Him and give Him time, no matter how long it takes.
♫ He’s a God you can’t hurry, He’ll be there so don’t you worry.
♫ He may not come when you want Him, but He comes on time.
Rest assured and keep hoping and believing, dear one.
Our Deliverer will deliver us!
