Doubt creeps in, and then fear consumes…
Questions arise like:
Have I done the right thing? Why me, Lord?
Our mind becomes the battlefield of our lives. The place where we decide who we choose in our anguish because the ability to trust God in times of need, is undoubtedly one of the hardest things that we go through, as Christian’s.
But it is in the moment of letting go of what our current circumstances show, and trusting in what we’ve seen God previously do, that faith is built and hope restored.
This Psalmist shows that when we feel lonely or depressed, meditate on God’s kindness and love; as it will focus our thoughts on God’s ability to help, instead of our inability to help ourselves.
I have learnt that praising God in the midst of it all, may not bring a breakthrough in the circumstances but if our mind is focused on God, then the battle has been won
