I believe that one of the greatest mistakes of the church world today is their lack of understanding concerning the things of God. When someone does not thoroughly understand their Creator, they cannot properly relate to Him. It is like a little chick that has been separated from the hen, or that which has mothered it. It cannot find its way back into that warm, consoling environment, and so it becomes greatly alarmed. Fear and frustration strikes the heart, when perhaps the mother hen is just around the corner of the barn and is diligently searching for the little chick.
Confusion always brings about that feeling of insecurity, that loneliness of being all alone in a great big world where no one cares, and where no one will offer a helping hand in the time of need. Oh my! That’s such an awful feeling! Terror begins to strike, and Satan begins to undermine the foundation of man. A person begins to stumble and stagger like a man drowning, clutching to a straw while he begins to lose sight of all the principles upon which life is founded. In that he has not been thoroughly indoctrinated with the word of life, he suddenly becomes aware of the fact that all hope is gone. He is at a total loss and doesn’t know what to do.
There is a time when all of the additives of life fail, and there are no available means by which you may cope with the situation. The circumstantial environment of the web in which you are caught has become such a hideous prison until it seems impossible to retain sanity. It is at this point of desperation that you scream out in utter defeat, “Oh, dear God! Have mercy on me!”
It is then, and only then, that God can actually begin to relate to you, and you, likewise, to God. When your ability, your powers of ingenuity, and all other sources have failed, it is at that time that Christ Jesus comes to your rescue, for it is written in the Scriptures that it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Remember that God hath no pleasure in death. God is not pleased in seeing you defeated in your purpose or cause, so long as it is according to Biblical standards, for He desires to strengthen and help you. The Bible teaches that God will not pervert a man in his cause.
Out of human weakness, godly strength is born. Out of the depths of despair, hope in Christ will create possibility. To believe on the Lord Jesus Christ is to find a real refuge in the time of storm. To accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior is to find an eternal guide that knows the way through the shadows of death and despair.
This is why the Bible teaches us that we should call upon Him while He may be found. We can see the deepening shadows of tribulation as they begin to fall across the pathways of mankind.
Even the greatest of leaders throughout the world have exhausted every means, and yet the problem still remains unsolved. They cannot find the answer, yet Christ is the answer. If you’ve never given Christ a chance at your life, let me encourage you to do so, for the time of His coming is at hand.
The Bible teaches, “Be ye also ready.” May the Lord bless you. We are praying for you.
