At our lowest points in life, we can be tempted to stop trusting in the Lord and instead take matters into our own hands. But when we do, it’s easy to wind up in a mess. The good news is that even in a mess, if we look to the Lord, we will see the way out of our pit and back into His will.
God’s word, the bible, can be trusted to help you see the way out of your pit. By reading God’s word you become wise to the schemes of the devil, thus preventing him from causing you pain or to sin. By causing you to sin the devil will control your life and cause you to go in the wrong direction, even into a pit of despair.
There is a Proverb found in the bible that is my favorite and one I go to when I need the strength to carry on in spite of my situation. It is Proverbs 3:5-6 and it says for us to, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and don’t lean on your own understanding. Instead, acknowledge Him in all your ways and He will make your path straight.”
Why not seek the Lord and His answer for your situation? His answer will be the very best for you and one you can trust and depend on.
