You are distraught, frustrated. You are at the proverbial end of your rope. The outlook is not promising. Everything seems stacked against you. Is this you today? Precious child of God, behold your God! How successful the devil is during life’s potholes to convince us that Jesus has forsaken us! But this is never true!
As the Lord told Israel regarding the time when they would be overwhelmed by their enemies during the great tribulation period, “Behold, your God will come”. What strength there is when our focus is redirected from the problem to the Solution! Saints, no matter what you are facing right now, “Behold your God!”
Scripture teaches that our eyes affect our heart, and never are we to deny our problems. However, never should we allow our problems to govern our lives. Behold, your God is on the job. His ways are much higher than ours. Faith “sees” what one cannot yet view with physical eyes. Faith “walks” (2 Cor 5:70) looking unto Jesus (Heb 12:2). So when you are sinking, and life is stinking, behold your God!
Salvation, past, present and future, is summed up in the words, “Behold the Lamb of God”. Even Pilate declared, “Behold the Man!” and “Behold your King!” Saints, behold your Rock! Meditate on Jesus today. Read the accounts of His miracles in the Gospels. Behold afresh this truth, the love bestowed upon you, His child. His work, despite the present circumstances, will prove to be good.
Amen! A message needed by all of us!
Maybe we can add to the catchy phrase: “when you are sinking, and life is stinking, behold your God!” Psalm 32:8 says “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.”
How about: “When you are sinking, and life is stinking, He is unblinking, behold your God!”
Add to that, stinkin’ thinkin’. Blessings to you all!!
