“So he called the name of the place Massah and Mariah, because of the contention of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us or not?”
How often do we, get into that place were we too, can ask, “IS THE LORD AMONG US OR NOT?” I’m not talking about bills, jobs or health issues that we all face in life. As we walk with the LORD, ministering and sharing His good news, we may come to a place and ask how did I get here? Where are you LORD? Why can’t I hear You? I believe we’ve all asked these kind of questions. Life can do this to us! I’m thirsty in a dry land!
“Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, LORD, I believe help my unbelief!”
Like this father who believed in the LORD, but life happened. His child was sick and he was at his end! This is true for us also. Health runs out, job or ministry hit a dead end or the money ran out before the month is over! Then we can start to question where is the LORD? We need to remember the LORD got us through before. He’ll get us through again!
“Hear my cry, O God; Attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”
Life is a wilderness, full of all kinds of distressing situations and we can get overwhelmed! Just hold on to the LORD, don’t hold on to distressing situations. Cry out to the LORD and just remain focused on Him. The LORD is among you and He will act right at the right second, not before or after, but right on time! Today, just rest in Him and don’t wrestle with life’s situations. Have a blessed day leaning on the LORD (our Rock)!
