May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble...may He send you help from the sanctuary – Ps. 20:1-2
Man is not designed for trouble neither is he destined to dwell in trouble but he has been pre-destined to go through a season of trouble. It is not in God’s plan to watch you wallow in troubled waters but He rather choses to bring you out of the troubled waters of life to the stilled waters, wherein your soul can find rest from the hustle and bustle of life.
The Bible says man is of short days which are full of trouble. But you can escape living a troubled-filled life to living a treasured-filled life. As a child of the All Sufficient God, you are no longer under the curse of the law but under the grace of God, which enables you to make withdrawals from God’s treasury of favour, fruitfulness and all round divine freshness.
When God's help comes your way in the time of trouble, it guarantees:
1. Total Relief. Trouble gets a man choked with distress and discomfort but by virtue of divine intervention, God turns the tide around to terminate his season of trouble and thereby cause his soul to be at rest
2. Total Restoration. God's help brings about harvest of restoration of joy, peace, favour and lost opportunity. The testimony of David subsequent to his pursuit after the Amalekites, for the recovery of possessions carted away, was that the Lord restored him fully. That is why I know every lost blessings and opportunity in your life shall be restored in multiple fold in Jesus name.
3. Total Repositioning. The Psalmist was gladdened in his heart when the Lord changed his occupation of the miry clay to his settlement on the rock. Today, God will change and reposition you from your wilderness to the mountain top. His help is coming your way. Don’t give up when God has prepared you an upper room of pleasant surprises. Take a leaf from the book of the Psalmist, who chose to keep his eyes on the Holy hill of the Lord, for divine assistance.
Man is one the key vessels God uses to render help to His people. However, your focus must not be on man but on the Lord and His Cross, on which there is assurance that God will cross out your trouble and give you double honour. May the Lord dispense you with speedy help for speedy relief, restoration and repositioning in Jesus name. Amen.
