What should we do when life gets overwhelming and the troubles we face seem too much for us?
I was in a situation this past week and I was overwhelmed by the things I was facing. I felt discouraged
and felt like God wasn’t listening but I came across a scripture in my quiet time that recalibrated my thoughts
back to Him.
Life has a way at times of getting our minds off God, and driving us into some pretty dark and ugly tunnels and
that is why we need God’s word in our lives.
It recalibrates, and realigns our thoughts back to Him.
Let’s get into the word I read;
“Perhaps you will think to yourselves, ‘How can we ever conquer these nations that are so much more powerful
than we are?’ But don’t be afraid of them! Just remember what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and to all the
land of Egypt.”
Deuteronomy 7:17-18 NLT
Moses was addressing the people of Israel as they were about to enter the promise land. They would come up
against some very powerful enemies and Moses knew they would encounter times of fear, doubt and anxiety.
But he reminded them to REMEMBER, what God did to the Egyptians.
As powerful as the Egyptians were, God delivered and saved Israel from them. He defeated the Egyptians.
He also reminded them that God was with them.
““No, do not be afraid of those nations, for the Lord your God is among you, and he is a great and awesome God.”
Deuteronomy 7:21 NLT
So if you are feeling overwhelmed by the troubles you face and the giants that are before you, remember what the
Lord has done for you. Remember the great deliverances He has delivered you with. Remember how He has answered
your prayers through the years and still continues to do so.
He is with you. You are not alone at any time, especially when trouble is at your door. God will deliver you like He has
done many times before. Keep holding onto your faith in Him.
Bless you friends
