Steps of Faith for the Deaf
King David in the Old Testament had a lot of battles and wars. Many times he felt that it was more than he could do. He used the word “overwhelmed”—meaning he felt his troubles were so much they were flowing over him like a river and he was drowning in troubles.
Psalms 142:3 David said: “When my spirit is overwhelmed within me, then You knew my path, In the way in which I have walked, my enemies have laid a trap for me.”
Psalms 143:4 David said: “Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate (feeling alone with no one)/
Then after telling God how he felt, David goes on to tell how he will trust the Lord to help him. That he is not going to give up hope.
God does help him. Yes, things looked very bad for David for awhile, but in the end, David was the winner.
You may feel like David. You may have so many troubles and problems that you feel you are drowning in them.
Do what David did—–tell the Lord how you feel. The Lord knows any way.
If you feel like giving up—-tell the Lord how you feel. Then put yourself and your problems in the hands of Jesus, and trust him to work our a way for you to be able to keep on going and to succeed.
Nothing is too hard for God. Luke 1:37 “For with God nothing shall be impossible.”
God will not do things for you that are against his laws or rules. God will not do things for you that God feels would be wrong for you.
But God loves you very much and he will take care of you and help you in ways that are the best for you.
Good-bye for now. I’ll write again. Sincerely, Joyce Webb
