We are pressed on every side by troubles but not crushed and broken. We are perplexed because we don’t know why things happen as they do, but we don’t give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going…” II Corinthians 4:8-9
Have you ever felt overwhelmed by your circumstances? As if life has gotten out of hand and you will never recover?
These verses express that type of desperation. When you feel as if your very life is being squeezed out of you as you are caught in between the circumstance that surround you…when you feel wave after wave of guilt or sorrow or anger or whatever is happening in your life, and you are drowning in the overflow, these verses are for you. They assure you that, even though these tidal waves of trouble may seem overwhelming, you will NOT be crushed and broken. Even when you are confused because you cannot see what God is doing,and you cannot even begin to understand why He would allow these trials in your life, you can keep on going. Even when you feel hunted down by tribulation, God NEVER abandons you! When you get knocked down, He is waiting to lift you up, and even carry you when you cannot go another step of the journey. You are Not alone! God is there to help you! Will you reach out to Him today and accept His grace and mercy? He is waiting for you to let Him help you. It is your choice to receive His love and provision for this time of trial. Only He can help in times like this.
