Bible Verse for Today
“I looked on my right hand and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.” (Psalm 142:4)
As men and women of God, many times, we find ourselves going through dry seasons and places. Times where we seem to be surrounded by dead, dry souls.
It can be at home, at work, or even at Church. We can’t find refuge at home because no one believes as we do. You feel like a stranger amongst your own family. At work, it’s even worst.
The spirit of the Antichrist is everywhere, and you are not allowed to express your faith at any time. Then you come to the Church seeking solace after a long week, and all you find is gossip, envy, and strife. Fellow believers are too wrapped up in their little worlds and cliques to notice your needs.
Thank God that David also said, “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. (Psalm 121)
God tells us in His word, “I’ll never leave you or forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5) And also, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1)
Devotional for every day here: Daily Devotional
Friends and family may fail you, even our Brothers and Sisters in the Lord, but God never fails us – we fail Him. The flesh wants to be consoled by other flesh. This is why believers seek out every earthly remedy they can for their problems before they go spiritual and seek the help of the only one who can not fail us, Jesus Christ. Just because you can see and touch your earthly counsel does not mean you are getting good advice or help.
Remember who we are and whom we serve during those times of trouble: the author and finisher of our faith, Jesus Christ. God bless you all.
God Never Fails Us Prayer for Today
Father, we thank you that we can always depend on you. We thank you that when the enemy comes in like a flood and we seem to have nowhere to turn, we can turn to you, our ever-present help in times of trouble. Help us, Lord, not rely on the arm of the flesh but on you. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.
