“For the enemy has persecuted me, He has crushed my life down to the ground; He has made me dwell in dark places, like those who have been long dead. Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed and weak within me [wrapped in darkness]; My heart grows numb within me.”
PSALM 143:3-4 AMP https://www.bible.com/1588/psa.143.3-4.amp
I know this is a late post. It’s been a busy day. But I couldn’t let today pass, without sharing the Goodness of My God.
If you’ve followed the past few posts, you know I’ve been going through a battle.
I keep saying it’s the worst I’ve known.
As it should be.
I say that because, as we see in scripture and in other’s testimonies, the battles don’t ever get easier, we are just more equipped from the last one.
The intensity of the “fire” had left me numb.
I sat the other evening with a blank stare on my face, as life as I had known it flashed all around me, and yet I didn’t seem to feel much of anything.
In hanging on to every Word from God as if it were my final breath, I would awaken this morning to a companion, not just letters on a page in the Bible.
David is His name. He belonged to another era, but shared my sufferings. His words consoled me.
I knew, at that moment, I wasn’t the only one.
I knew I wasn’t alone. I had rehearsed it-
But to see someone in the Word of God who had experienced the same exact thing I was experiencing, was again, nothing short of incredible.
HE MADE IT.
David got out of that pit of darkness, where He had become numb and overwhelmed, and went right on to the palace!
Well, maybe not right on, but close. We read his story in chapters, when in fact it took years.
I’m telling you, from experience Dear friend, That God is never far away.
He is very near to the broken hearted.
He hears you when you call. And the answer is always on its way.
Are you looking?
Because it pays to discover. Get in the Word. Make Him a priority.
He promised that we would find Him, when we look for Him with all of our heart.
He has not failed me one time through all of this, to give me a Word to calm the fears-
And then He goes the extra mile to confirm it.
He came through. He always does.
God will never call you where He doesn’t calm you.
The anchor, King Jesus, holds.
Jesus told His disciples in Mark 4 that they were going to the other side. In the meantime, a storm raged. A fatal one.
The disciples woke Jesus up to ask why He would just let them perish.
Jesus simply calmed the storm.
He called them to the other side, and He calmed them in the heat of the battle.
And you know what?
THEY MADE IT.
