“Trust His Heart”

When things don’t turn out the way you think they should it can be a time of great distress and confusion, especially if you ask God to lead and guide your life. You may wonder if God really does exist or if the things that have happened are just coincidence. If you have gone through a great disappointment and can’t see the light because of your tears, here’s a song and some quotes that may help you.

“The circumstances of a saint’s life are ordained by God, and not by happy-go-lucky chance. There is no such thing as chance in the life of a saint, and we shall find that God by His providence brings our bodies into circumstances that we cannot  understand a bit, but the Spirit of God understands; He is bringing us into places and among people and under conditions in order that the intercession of the Holy Spirit in us may take a particular line.”

From “If Ye Shall Ask”, by Oswald Chambers

“God engineers our circumstances as He did those of His Son; all we have to do is to follow where He places us. The majority of us are busy trying to place ourselves.”

From “The Love Of God–The Ministry Of The Unnoticed”, by Oswald Chambers.

Tell God how you feel about your disappointment in prayer. Then trust Him and believe that things will be right in the end.

God Will Hold You In Trouble

Morning

“Underneath are the everlasting arms.” Deuteronomy 33:27

God–the eternal God–is himself our support at all times, and especially when we are sinking in deep trouble. There are seasons when the Christian sinks very low in humiliation. Under a deep sense of his great sinfulness, he is humbled before God till he scarcely knows how to pray, because he appears, in his own sight, so worthless. Well, child of God, remember that when thou art at thy worst and lowest, yet “underneath” thee “are everlasting arms.” Sin may drag thee ever so low, but Christ’s great atonement is still under all. You may have descended into the deeps, but you cannot have fallen so low as “the uttermost;” and to the uttermost he saves. Again, the Christian sometimes sinks very deeply in sore trial from without. Every earthly prop is cut away. What then? Still underneath him are “the everlasting arms.” He cannot fall so deep in distress and affliction but what the covenant grace of an ever-faithful God will still encircle him. The Christian may be sinking under trouble from within through fierce conflict, but even then he cannot be brought so low as to be beyond the reach of the “everlasting arms”–they are underneath him; and, while thus sustained, all Satan’s efforts to harm him avail nothing.

This assurance of support is a comfort to any weary but earnest worker in the service of God. It implies a promise of strength for each day, grace for each need, and power for each duty. And, further, when death comes, the promise shall still hold good. When we stand in the midst of Jordan, we shall be able to say with David, “I will fear no evil, for thou art with me.” We shall descend into the grave, but we shall go no lower, for the eternal arms prevent our further fall. All through life, and at its close, we shall be upheld by the “everlasting arms”–arms that neither flag nor lose their strength, for “the everlasting God fainteth not, neither is weary.”

From “Morning And Evening”, by Charles Spurgeon, pg. 632

“Do Not Fear!”

When communist authorities in Romania forced Richard Wurmbrand into a van as he walked to church on Febuary 29, 1948, he had a good reason to be scared. But he remembered something that morning that really helped him. This is what he said:

“I knew that I faced questioning, ill-treatment, possibly years of imprisonment and death, and I wondered if my faith was strong enough. I remembered then that in the Bible it is written 366 times – once for every day of the year – ‘Don’t be afraid!’ 366 times, not merely 365, to account for leap year. And this was February 29 – a coincidence that told me I need not fear!”
