Turn to God

22 June 2020
‘I was in trouble, so I called to the Lord. The Lord answered me and set me free.’

Where do you go when you’re facing a challenging situation? The psalmist turned to God. He wrote: ‘I was in trouble, so I called to the Lord.’ God’s waiting for us to turn to Him and ask for His help. He’s ready to step in and fight on our behalf. He cares about everything that’s worrying us. The Bible says: ‘Give all your worries to him, because he cares about you’ (1 Peter 5:7 NCV). Whether our problems seem big or small, He wants us to go to Him with all of them. But sometimes we can find ourselves doubting whether God really cares or listens to us because our prayers aren’t always answered in the way we think they should be. In Psalm 118, the psalmist continues by saying, ‘The Lord answered me and set me free.’ This happens for some of us, but sometimes we can find ourselves turning to God and remaining in the situation we’re in. We might never understand why God keeps us in some tough situations, but we can trust that He does hear us, and that He’s always working. He works in ways we can’t always see or understand. Sometimes God wants to teach us something in the trial. Other times He fills us with an overwhelming sense of His peace and love, which helps us to keep walking through the things we’re facing. He can also provide us with the wisdom we need to find our way through the valley. Even if there have been times when we felt God didn’t come through for us in the way we wanted Him to, we shouldn’t let those times stop us from turning to Him again. He is good, whether He removes us from the situation or brings us closer to Him through it.
