sometimes life feels like a flood.
with the waters rising fast and hard.
with no escape and nowhere to turn.
and we wonder if we can make it.
if we can swim long enough. if we can tread water long enough. if we can fight long enough.
we wonder if God sees us flailing our arms.
if He sees the panic in our eyes.
if He sees we’re so obviously overwhelmed.
sometimes we wonder if God knows we’re about to give up.
if He knows we’re to the point where going under seems so much easier than going on.
if He knows the fight has been too long. that it’s been too hard. that it’s been too much.
sometimes we wonder if God sees us at all.
i know, because i’ve been there.
in my own battle.
in my own flood.
and because i’ve been there i can look at you and tell that God does see us.
that He does care.
that He hasn’t forgotten us in the middle of our storm.
we just need to find our promise.
God’s Word says in Psalm 18:16 “He reached down from on high and took hold of me; He drew me out of the deep waters.”
HE DRAWS US OUT OF THE DEEP WATERS. There’s our promise!
and once we find our promise we need to hold on to it.
we need to speak it.
we need to believe it.
because satan may send a flood to threaten us…but God has promised He will never let us drown!
