Trouble Linked to Promotion

When trouble came to David on that hillside, he couldn’t see how being attacked by LionBear.pnga lion had anything to do with being king of Israel someday. That day all he saw was teeth, hair and eyeballs lunging at him. He had no idea killing that lion connected to confronting a bear or how that was preparatory to killing a giant or how that would favor him as a candidate for king. (Rom.8:28) —Kathy


How do I Deal With the Troubles?

(Kathy Gabler)—I awoke in a funk.  When my eyes opened, the weight of unresolved situations and unanswered prayers was already smothering my hope for the day.  I sat up and said, “Father, I’m not going to whine and list the stuff that is squeezing my heart.  Neither will I foolishly demand that You do something quick or I quit, but I do honestly want to ask:  How should I think? How do I deal with the troubles in my face this morning, long-standing issues that have not the slightest evidence of even being on Your radar?  I see no hint of things in motion or even the slightest chance of change.  What do I do?”  He answered immediately, “Stay still and stay thankful.”  His answer was both sudden and surprising, but the instructions were clear.  I embarked on a journey that morning, one of those unmapped trips that bring you to intersections you did not anticipate.  I was about to discover that some foundational concepts in my Christian world, like peace and trust and faith, connected in ways that I had never realized.

Stretch Forth His Hand

Helping up


May the Lord keep His people, revive them and stretch forth His hand
to do what they cannot do in the midst of their trouble. May He stretch
forth His hand and save them from their trouble.

“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will
stretch out Your hand Against the wrath of my enemies, And Your
right hand will save me.” (Ps.138:7, NKJV)
