It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. Have you ever battled with depression? Because of the loss of something or someone, your normal behavior has been altered. Have you ever cried yourself to sleep? With so much pain and uncertainty you cried yourself to sleep, only to wake up the next morning still crying. Have you ever prayed for someone to notice your pain and heartache? On the outside, things appear wonderful. You are constantly smiling and laughing. But within you are a nervous wreck. Each day you fight off the tears. Have you ever experienced disappointment with family members? When they were down, you were there to minister to them. You worked hard to assist them back to their feet. Now that all is well in their life, you are in need of encouragement and love. The same person has now moved on without any regard for you. Have you been there? Are you there now?
This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. My friend, you are at a point of desperation. You feel as though you cannot make it through another day, another bad phone call or another tragedy. Now that you are getting over a past hurt, the last thing you need is something else to go wrong. Worry has begun to consume your mind. You read your Bible, but the anxiety is still there. You pray but the questions still linger. You Need A Word From The Lord! You need a divine encounter with the Lord. The Bible declares in Hebrews 3:15 - While it is said, To day if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. At this point in your life, family and friends usually cannot help you. As much as they desire to assist, what you need they do not have. You Need A Word From The Lord! You need a life changing, goal altering Word. A word that causes peace to consume your body. It is this Word that can and will keep you when everything seems wrong in life. It is this Word that sustains you through the breakdowns.
My brother, my sister, what fear has you in bondage? What concern causes depression in your life? Do you believe God knows what is best? You Need A Word From The Lord! You need one-on-one time with the Master. Working overtime will not fill the void. Shopping sprees will not overshadow the burden. Sleeping and crying all day will not change the outcome. The Bible declares in Matthew 24:35 - Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Beloved, today God desires to speak to you. He desires to penetrate your spirit. He longs to remove the pain in your life. The thing you feel you need to survive, God is able to be a substitute if needed. You Need A Word From The Lord! You need to know God knows best. You need to know He will never leave you (Hebrews 13:5). Dear friend, the Lord will always be there for you. There is a Word God has that’s just for you. Receive it today! Prayer for Today: Father, today I need to hear from you. I am hurting within, but I know you can heal my hurt. I need to hear your voice clearly. Please give me a Word that will keep me strong. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
Scripture Reading for Today: Isaiah 59:1
May God Bless you at Your point of need!
