Feeling broke, sick, tired, lonely, angry, depressed, hurt, emotionally distressed, or mentally anguished? My word of encouragement today is for you to relax and remember His grace is sufficient! God is in the middle of your mess and Psalm 56:8 reminds us that God not only sees our tears, he collects them. That means my hurt and yours is more precious to Him than we can imagine. This kind of response from God means He’s trustworthy to work our situations out for our good and His glory! I get it…..you got it…right?? Well, we often believe we have the best solutions to our problems. In fact, there are times I’ve found myself suggesting to God what He ought to do in my particular situation. But Isaiah 55:8-9 assures us that his ways are higher than our ways, meaning his method and His timing in how he chooses to do things are so much better than ours. He is God and I am not. And that just might be what He’s trying to show you and me in the struggle we’re struggling to fix. So, plain and simple, give your brokenness, loneliness, sickness, tiredness, anger, discouragement, and depression to God. Trust me He can handle it! God can, at any time, clear up the mess. So wait for His timing and learn all he wants you to learn in the moment. A messy situation is one of the primary ways God awakens our need for Him, grows our dependence on him, shapes our character, and draws us closer to Himself.
