Days of Trouble

I had a conversation with someone this week about our calling to God in hard times.

It seems like, and I believe it to be so, that there are two “types” of walks with God.

Type one is that one that has a good walk when things are good and smooth, but the trouble comes when there are rough seas and things are hard. The tough times try the faith and sometimes they wander away at that moment.

Perhaps that is you. Perhaps the tough time cause you to stray.

The other is actually drawn closer to God during times of trial, but the smooth road is tough to walk upon. The hard times make them cling close to God, but when things are smooth and calm, it’s easy to fall away.

That’s more how I’m wired.

Either way, there are times when we feel far away from God, no matter what is going on. There are times in our lives that are days of trouble.

Listen to the words of Psalm 50 this morning:

Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving
and make good your vows to the Most High.
Call upon me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you shall honor me.”

No matter when your trouble comes, be it a time of testing, or a time when things are “easy” God is there.  God is waiting on you to turn to Him.  To come to Him. To rest upon Him.

God is waiting on you today.

In this day, in this moment, God is waiting on you.

Will you turn to Him today, no matter trouble you are facing.

God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness.  Today, no matter what you weakness is, will you turn to Him?
