Recently I have subscribed to receive daily devotionals for Women and today I received this encouraging devotion.
|today’s versefrom the New Living Translation|
This is so true. God is the One we turn to when we are hurting or need help. Countless times I have turned to Him when I am hurting or am troubled. He is always there, just ready to step in and offer a helping hand. He cares about us. We are His children. He is the loving Father who longs to pick us up when we fall or enfold us in His arms when we need comforting or the shoulder we cry on.
The psalmist wrote, “God is our shelter and strength, always ready to help in times in trouble” (Psalm 46:1). Peter encouraged us to cast all of our anxiety on God because He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7).
There are times when God is the only One you can run to. He knows what is going on. You don’t have to tell Him. And He is in control. He is that Rock of strength you can cling to when you feel like you are sinking or unable to cope with what’s going on in your life or around you. Sometimes there is no other where to look but up. And remember that God is able and very willing to come to your aid. Just let go and let Him.
