Trusting God in the Desert Seasons of Life
Wednesday, January 3, 2018
Pastor Jerry Beebe
One thing that I’ve learned through the years is that each of us will face seasons in the desert – times of intense hardship and sorry. Perhaps you are in such a place now. Please be assured that no matter where you find yourself, God has promised never to leave or forsake you. Don’t allow grief or pain to blind you to God’s presence.
The Psalmist shows us in Psalm 63:1-8, three practices that help us to cling to Jesus while we are going through difficult times.
- Reflect on your personal relationship with God and your deep need of Him. (vs 1)
- Praise God. Praise is a powerful Scriptural force. (vv 3-5)
- Meditate on God. Look back and see His faithfulness in the past. (vv 2,6)
“Lord, open our eyes to see and trust you in the desert seasons of life.” Amen
