What do you do when the attacks of life come?  Do you get into despair?  Do you focus on your inability to solve your problems, or do you focus on God‘s ability and His faithfulness to bring you through?

 

Don’t Discount a Miracle

In 2 Corinthians 4:8-9,  the apostle Paul speaks personally and gives us a picture of the dreadful problems he was going through when he said, We are troubled on every side, yet we’re not distressed; we’re perplexed, but we’re not in despair; we’re persecuted, but we are not forsaken; we’re cast down, but we’re not destroyed.

In other words, Paul was saying, “The attacks of life come to all of us.  But when you’re hit, don’t give up and don’t get into fear.  No matter how big or how bad the problem is, God is bigger!  Stand strong in your faith and declare, ‘My God will deliver me!’”

Isn’t that what Moses said when he stood at the edge of the Red Sea, with Pharaoh’s armies chasing him from behind?  He said, Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord (Exodus 14:13).

Moses and the Israelites were surrounded by trouble on every side.  There was a roaring sea in front of them and a whole army of Egyptians thundering down on them from behind.

It seemed as if there was no way out, but God brought a great miracle.  He divided the waters of the sea so the people could walk across on dry land!

And in the midst of whatever problem you’re facing, God can do the same for you!
