Anyway, I decided to have a proper quiet time this morning and read this scripture:
Psalm 143 v 11: Save my life, O Lord, for Your name's sake; in Your righteousness, bring my life out of trouble and free me from distress.
Immediately the thought came to replace "life" with whatever it is that is troubling you. For example:
"Save my house, O lord,..." or "Save my marriage, O Lord,..." or "Save my child, O Lord,..." yes Lord, for Your name's sake...."
God will save our lives, our children, our marriages, our hopes, our dreams. But not necessarily because we WANT Him to! But He does it for His name's sake. He rescued Israel, for His name's sake many times. And just btw, He will do it again. Just putting that out there :)
And as I continued into my quiet time I was led to Psalm 16 v 11: You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.
Doesn't that almost answer the previous Psalm?
- Lord save my life..... You will show me the path
- For Your name's sake .... In Your presence is fullness of joy
Oh Lord how great thou art!
So, when we seek Him, He will be found. When we read His word, He does guide us. Yes, I know and have experienced what seemed to be silence, but its just a matter of waiting on the Lord for His timing.
My encouragement to you is no matter what you're going through, a high, a low, He is there.
