“On E”

Devotional:


This is the cry of that believer who feels God has left them to drown in an ocean of sorrows:


"Another day, yet it is the same as yesterday. A prayer spoken, but yet again it feels that its not answered. Am I living in a new school version of that movie Groundhog Day? Why does God allow me to suffer like this? Doesn't He see that I'm hurting? I must not matter. His love doesn't feel much like love at all right now. I'm tired, frustrated and have nothing left. I am literally finding myself on E."


Do any of you relate to this? Know that you aren't alone. Even the very person described as "a man after God's own heart", shared your same sentiment. In the midst of David's suffering he cried out to God continuously just as you have. There are moments in this life where it feels as though God Himself has left us. That in the midst of our greatest need He has grown silent.


Let me remind you that feelings are deceitful. Feelings aren't facts. And though what you're facing seems never ending, there is a light in the tunnel. See, often times we speak about the light that's at the end of the tunnel, but with that thinking we rob ourselves of instant deliverance. Why drown in an ocean that God has given us the strength to rise up from? Why stumble in darkness when God has placed a light within us? One that will guide our path and fill every void we have.


Though David's circumstances didn't change by the end of this Psalm, his perspective did. He remembered God's faithfulness and how He always honors His Word. That His love for us is everlasting. That He hears every prayer. That He bottles up every single tear. That He comforts us in the moments we need it most. That He fills every void space within us.


Whoever you are, find your strength in God's Word and His presence. He never guarantees that we won't experience hard times, but He does assure us He will walk through it with us.


Scripture(s) Meditation:


“Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint; heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony. My soul is in deep anguish. How long, Lord, how long? I am worn out from my groaning. All night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears. The Lord has heard my cry for mercy; the Lord accepts my prayer.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭6‬:‭2‬-‭3‬, ‭6‬, ‭9‬ ‭NIV‬‬


“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭105‬ ‭NIV‬‬


“The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”

‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭31‬:‭3‬ ‭NIV‬‬


“He replied, “You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?” In all this, Job did not sin in what he said.”

‭‭Job‬ ‭2‬:‭10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

As I go through the warfare the persecution and hatred of Loved ones. There are certain things that God is teaching me through it all and that's to still Love.. For when he was on the cross dying and losing his Life for us not one time did he get out of character through all the beatings the piercing and the crown of thorns. He remained humble through it all and his words he spoke out of Love was Lord Forgive them for they know not what they do. So through it all we must know that GOD'S Love is unfailing an with him the battle was won on the cross STAY ENCOURAGED...

It may feel like you won't get through this, but you WILL. He said that you can do ALL things through Him, who strengthens you. When you feel down and weary, let Him be your strength. Lay everything you can't carry at His feet and rest in Him. Even when you may not understand, our Father knows exactly what He is doing and He's got you!


Love and warm hug from your sister. 💗
