Are you going through something right now? Perhaps some challenges and frustrations at work or at home? Are you experiencing any brokenness because you don’t know how to get things under control in your life? Did you get a bad report from the doctor? Are you about to undergo a major change in your lifestyle? Have you had to deal with the recent death of a loved one? Or did you just come out of a bad relationship? Do you feel there is darkness all around and there is no light at the end of the tunnel?
Perhaps you are not going through at this present time, but there probably has been a time when you felt something similar to one of the above situations.
If you have had to battle any sickness or disease, who did you call on for your healing? Have you come close to losing your home or been unemployed for a while and struggled to pay your bills? Who made a way for you when it seemed like all else had failed? When depression set in and your thoughts were not His thoughts, how did you make it through? For some, the better question might be, how are you making it through?
Who do you call on late in the midnight hour? When there is trouble all around, who hears you crying?
Call on Jesus! Let Him be your light in every dark tunnel. Trust in the LORD! Allow Him to lead you through. He is the One who can lead you through the darkness and bring you to the light. Whatever your issue or your circumstance, you can make it through this! Trust Him and believe that He can work it out for you. You might feel you are about to break beyond restoration. You might feel you are all alone, but you are not. Trust in the Lord, He is the light while you are in your tunnel. When you are going through, go to God!
Psalm 91:14-16 (The Message) ” If you hold on to me for dear life, says God, “I’ll get you out of any trouble. I’ll give you the best of care if you’ll only get to know and trust me. Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side at bad times; I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party. I’ll give you a long life, and give you a long drink of salvation!”
Dear LORD, I am in a tunnel right now. I trust You to bring me out. LORD, I need you to guide me through this brokenness and to bring me closer to Your light and Your way. I refuse to give up because my hope is in You. You are my light while I am in this tunnel; You are my light when I am going through. Please forgive me of my sins. Create in me a clean heart. Even as I go through, I am already victorious because of You. LORD, I love You and I honor You. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!

Awesome reminder that we have to look to the hills, where does our help come from? Our help comes from the maker and creator of all things. Let’s be reminded that some of the challenges we endure (notice, I said endure, meaning we are or have made it through) are brought on by God as a test. So pull yourself up by the boot straps and lets’s get to riding in PRAISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There is strength in this struggle! Thank you for these encouraging words of truth!
This is another word of encouragement that I can share with a family member. I needed them as well.
Keep praying and keep trusting!
