Whatever the reason that we find ourselves in the wilderness facing (what seems like) certain death, KNOW this: The LORD hears your cry for help!
Sometimes God chooses to let us walk through the storm so that we can learn that He will never leave us or let a situation be more than we can handle with His help. And sometimes He just plain steps in and fixes everything better than we could possibly have dreamed. Sometimes it happens in a moment, sometimes after years of patient waiting. We’ll never see it if we don’t let Him work, if we don’t step back in faith and let God be God.
As we go about our lives, making decisions about finances, health, relationships, employment, education and family (to name a few) let us call on our God, let us seek His face, let us search out His will. Life is a struggle and we can’t see all the dangers ahead; it is difficult to know what choices to make. Truly, we have no hope of surviving on our own. But God is faithful: if we live by faith He will make our feet like hinds’ feet so that our steps are assured and we can escape to safety. If we trust in God, He will make our feet surefooted so that we can escape the wiles of the devil.
