Faith in Hard Times – 2017.04.03

Give yourself to the Lord;
trust in him, and he will help you;
Psalms 37:5
Don’t be worried on account of the wicked, don’t be jealous of those who do wrong. They will soon disappear like grass that dries up, they will die like plants that wither. Trust in the Lord and do good, live in the land and be safe. Seek your happiness in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desire. Give yourself to the Lord, trust in him, and he will help you, he will make your righteousness shine like the noonday sun. Be patient and wait for the Lord to act, don’t be worried about those who prosper or those who succeed in their evil plans. Don’t give in to worry or anger it only leads to trouble. (Psalms 37:1-8)
We have a hard time dealing with others talking bad about us. So evil lies and we can’t do anything about it! Who doesn’t get angry about something like that? It’s even worse when the lies are spread by those close to us. How could someone sleep well in times like that?
Unfortunately, sometimes we are in situations like that. God lets it happen, because it reveals our pride and our ego. Only our big, fat ego gets hurt when lies are told about us.
God puts us to His school. Sometimes it’s hard for us – or better, our ego. But how else can God rid us of our pride?
So we should go to the Lord instead of remaining angry. What god ever came from being angry? We could act angrily and we sin ourselves in the end. So we should bring all our grief and sorrows to the Lord so He can tell us how to deal with the situation. God talks to us through the scripture and His promises. God isn’t angry with us, He wants us to put our trust in Him. He brings everything to a good end.
Sometimes we have a financial loss but He can repay us. But our serenity, peace, and joy are more important – how would you buy that with money?
So we should trust the Lord. He gives us His peace. What is better after some stress?
Thank You Jesus, for You’re taking care for me! You are by my side even during an argument. When everyone tells lies about me, you are with me. That relaxes me. I trust in You to bring everything to an good end. Good that You are here!!
