Verse Of The Day : From the end of the earth will I cry unto you, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. Psalms 61:2
Thought of The Day : God gives peace to the troubled who comes to Him in faith.
LISTEN : Do you want to see God in your situation? Then, seek after Him. Pray to Him and never give up no matter what. God will attend to you when you wait on Him despite pressures and storms in your life (Isaiah 40:31). When the pressure of your life increases, prayer and faith in God will cause Him to calm your storm and subsequently calm your heart. My dear, no matter the pressure, always hold on to God. When you’re overwhelmed by troubles of life just take all to God. No doubt, people are often overwhelmed with different things in life. Some are overwhelmed with guilt, familial and marital problems; academic failure, ministerial setbacks, health condition, etc., yet, where faith is alive, trouble is rendered powerless. Beloved, when your heart is overwhelmed, find your way back to God. To be overwhelmed is to be crushed and overpowered emotionally. Many people are crushed and overpowered emotionally today by circumstances of life. To some, their lives are completely messed up, and there seems to be no hope for them. But the good news is that, God is willing to help if you are willing to come to Him. My dear, just cooperate with God. Cooperating with God will cause Him to crush your crises. Yes, you can’t walk with God by faith and be established in failure. Beloved, are you overwhelmed with problems of life. Cry no more and have faith in God! (Psalms 42:5). The storm can only push you here and there, but can’t end your life. God will provide emotional stability for you in distress. Most times it is difficult to know the worth of God until we found ourselves in serious troubles. Until we are threatened by the storms of life, God will not manifest His power in us. My dear, no matter the storm that is up against you, connect yourself to God. With Him on your side, you can’t be moved no matter the circumstance. Henceforth, soak yourself in God’s presence through prayer and expect His attention. Be wise!
