In Trouble?

Faith Filled Friday by Connie Terpack

Who hasn’t been in trouble? Job 5:7 says, “Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.” We can all say “amen” to that.

First, remember we have a promise from God – “And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shall glorify me.” Psalms 50:15.

God wants to hear from us, call upon me, and I’m thankful that he does. You can call on him anytime of the day or night, any day of the week, from anywhere you are.

You do not have to limit your time with God to only the day of trouble, but that is usually when he hears from most of us. Tell him about the problem, how you feel, your worries and concerns.

He has words of encouragement for us: I will deliver you. He does not list any exceptions to this. God give us his promise; we can believe and trust him.

God does expect us to glorify him, You will glorify Me. To thank someone after they help you is common courtesy. Giving God the glory is a small price to pay for his help. Just remember, His help may not be in our time frame nor the way we expect.

The phrase “as sparks fly upward” gives me a little trouble since I do not understand what it means. At every campfire I have sat around the sparks always flew up into the sky and disappeared. Maybe that is God’s way of telling us out troubles will fly up to Him and disappear also.

After you give your troubles to God, you will soon notice that your joy and a good attitude return, along with becoming an encouragement to those around you. Maybe even someday in the future, you will be a help to someone in the midst of “their trouble” by sharing the very principles and Bible verses that God taught you.

We serve a wonderful God!
