Topic: His Presence Is More Than The Trouble [Tuesday, December 5, 2017]

Basic Scripture: Psalm 89: 20-35

A wise man, Max Lerner, one penned: “The turning point in the process of growing up is when you discover the core of strength within you and survives all hurt.” Then Bernard Baruch said: “The drift of kings lies in eliminating the troubles than in growing with them.”

But he was wrong! From today’s Basic Scripture, it is clear that even God does not eliminate or keep us from all problems. He does not open paths for us before we come to them or provide help before help is needed. He neither does nor removes the flood or the fire (obstacles) before we reach them; yet when we are the point of need, HE SHOWS UP AS THE EVER-PRESENT IN TROUBLE. Many forget this truth and they murmur, complain, question God and grow discouraged concerning trusting God. Many wonder why some problems keep lingering despite prayers and fasting. Some even contemplate suicide or they visit extra-powers (negative doors) at night. Oh, that you would know that God would deliver you at a time called “DUE SEASON” in his calendar

He is not a wicked God! Life may not be fair, but God is good! Don’t question  why God allows you to enter into the river or enter into the fire, before He shows up. Why did He allow Daniel to enter into the lions’ den before He showed up? Why were the three Hebrew boys thrown into the fire before He showed up? WHY NOT BEFORE? Why was Peter chained in the prison before the angel showed up? Why are you going through that current trial? Why did God not deliver James from Hero’s sword? The answer is simple: BECAUSE HIS PRESENCE IN LIFE OR DEAT IS MORE NTHE PROBLEM.

That is why you must laugh often! Trust God and never forget that no fire will consume you and no trial will drown you. Yes, each wave of this raging sea is moving you to the place of your destiny. Lift up your hands and start praising the Lord now even as you hold on and hold out!
