When we cry out to God for help, he answers us. He has given us the freedom of making our own choices which means he has to stand back and watch when we make bad ones – choices that can have long-term negative consequences for us.
Other times, God creates adverse situations in our lives in order to discipline us and teach us.
Both of these situations cause problems and challenges in our lives.
When we’re knee-deep in trouble, the smart thing to do is to call out to God. BEFORE we get neck-deep.
He will open our eyes to the truth and to the lesson he is trying to teach us.
Isaiah tells us in Chapter 30 that we will hear a voice behind us, saying. “This is the way, walk in it.”
If we choose to obey these directions, God will shower his blessing on us. When it seems like there is only darkness around us, God’s light will break through to heal us and make us whole. He will direct our next step and then our next one, until we get to the place that right for us – where he wants us to be.
Please help us obey, Abba Father.
