In The Time Of Trouble
Each of us can reflect on a day when trouble has come our way. There are times when we got ourselves into trouble, and there are other times when others may have brought the trouble to us, and yet and still there are times when trouble just came out of nowhere and found us. It is in these times we need to make sure we call on the right person to help us out of all the trouble we may find ourselves in. We have trouble in our homes, jobs, cities, and communities where we live. No matter where the trouble is or where the trouble has come from it is essential for us to call upon the name of The Lord in the time of trouble. The Scripture reminds us to, call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me. I encourage you today when you find yourself in trouble or trouble comes your way to call on The Lord He will hear your cry. When you call on The Lord in the day of your trouble, He promised He would deliver you. You do not have to go through the storms of life and not have anyone to call on, because The Lord is always there for you. When trouble seemingly has you surrounded you can call upon the name of The Lord and He will hear you in the midst of everything you are going through. When The Lord delivers you, it is imperative that you glorify Him and give Him the glory due His name. If it had not been for God who was there with you through it all and snatched you out of the pit just in time, and delivered you just when you needed it, where would you be? Glorify God for the great things He has done in your life, and for hearing you in the time of trouble. I thank God He is a delivering God who has heard my cry in the midst of my trouble. Since He has delivered me and delivering me I will glorify Him because I know for sure, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Thank you Lord for hearing my cry in the midst of trouble. Thank you for always hearing my cry and being there for me, and delivering me. I will always glorify your name. In Jesus Name Amen.
