Revelation 2:13 I know your works, and where you dwell. (NKJV)
We all experience days and situations that are so overwhelming, we feel we can no longer cope. We want to run away and be anywhere, rather than in or with the situation, in which we find ourselves.
We despair and give up all hope that God hears or will answer our prayers, after all we are such diminutive beings and He is so….well, IMMENSE! So ‘out there’!
Whatever your predicament, rest assured that He knows exactly where you are and what you are dealing with. He is all-knowing and nothing escapes His detection. Trust in Him and His direction, but do it with everything you have – no half measures, no pretense.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 …..I know what I have planned for you, says the Lord. I have good plans for you. I don’t plan to hurt you. I plan to give you hope and a good future. Then you will call my name. You will come to Me and pray to Me. And I will listen to you. You will search for Me. And when you search for Me with all your heart, you will find Me. (NCV-ICV)
Prayer: Father God. Hear my prayer and meet my needs. I can no longer live this way. I don’t know what to do next. Please let me feel Your presence and show Me your solution to make my life better. Amen.
