Have you ever had such conversations with the Lord?
– “God, I don’t know what to do about my marriage anymore.”
– “I’ve no idea how we’re going to pay off this loan.”
– “God, I didn’t see this retrenchment coming at all. What do I do?!”
What do you do when you don’t know what to do?
Brethren, When your life is going in circles and you know that you are not making any progress …. it can be a difficult honest conversation to have with yourself or anyone else. Very few people have the nerve to say ‘I AM NOT DOING WELL’; and if they do…it’s because they have already given up hope that their life can actually make a 360 degree turn around.
When you feel hopeless you feel very unhappy because there seems to be no possibility of life ever having a happy ending. There are things that happen in life that can break your spirit and cause you to feel like a failure. It’s a tough experience to work through alone and without the support of a healthy team.
Someone who’s hopeless believes that nothing good can happen and a happy ending seems impossible. Everyday there are people who feel like they are just trying to hold all the fragile pieces together. And it gets worse if they begin questioning themselves and anxiety answers back.
Even if people can afford the best therapist, they will fail to get the satisfaction to life’s complicated issues if all they want to do is to complain about their ex, or to talk about how to get others to change, or if they want to keep playing the victim role.
The good news is,
God hears you and He wants to show you what to do in every crisis. He does it through His Holy Spirit who lives in us. The Holy Spirit is our Helper who teaches us ALL THINGS and guides us into ALL TRUTH (see John 14:26–But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you). “ALL THINGS” encompasses not just your spiritual walk, but also every practical area of your life—your relationships, career, finances, and so on. The Lord guides you as you simply come to Him and talk to him. Yes! Did you know that He invites you to talk with Him? (see Ps. 27:8–My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, LORD, I will seek.).
Plus, God has promised to instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; to counsel you with His loving eye on you (see Ps. 32:8 —I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.)So the next time you don’t know what to do, talk to Him. And as He has promised in His Word, He will give you practical wisdom for that problem, or cause what you need to supernaturally come to you!
I really believe there are some people out there who really don’t know what to do from where they have reached … so I will offer some suggestions. Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. God is the One who keeps us on track so it’s important to listen for His LOVING voice. God NEVER destroys our confidence…nor does He turn His face from us…regardless of ALL our faults and blunders. If you are hearing negative voices … BE WARNED – It isn’t God’s voice. He DID NOT DIE for those who have it all together.
Don’t assume you know it all. Trust God with your journey. He was the ONE who mapped it all out before you were even born. Nothing has taken Him by surprise. He knows the intersection, the exits, and the U-turns on this right Highway of life. He’s Got YOU! He’s better than your GPS Tracker. He finds you wherever you are. Believe you me … God is strong and He wants us to be strong so that we will be able to stand up to everything that the Devil throws at us. The reason we may feel hopeless and helpless is because we are not equipped to withstand the attacks of the Devil. God is strong and He wants us to be strong – it’s a COMBO DEAL (God and You) or you are on your own.
Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get. Two is better than one … if one falls down, one can help the other up. It’s the power of the THREE Cord – God, you, and the other one who is supporting you in prayer- The Holy Spirit. You are up against far more than you can handle. Let WISDOM prevail over pride.God sees your sufferings and has heard your cry, He knows the pain, and has come down for a rescue mission to rescue you from the weight of life and the best part is, He will bring you into a good place of hope and great joy.
Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters all over the world who suffer because they don’t know the truth. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.🌹
