Are You Troubled?

“The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.” Psalm 9:9-10 King James Version

When the problems of this life overwhelm us, we have a refuge we can run to for shelter and His name is Jesus. One of the definitions that I found in Webster’s Dictionary for refuge is “shelter or protection from danger or distress”. Not only is Jesus our Saviour; He is also our shelter from danger and distress and from satan. He will protect us if we will only trust Him. Our precious Saviour loves us very much and He wants to protect us.

However, there are times when we go to Him and try to tell Him how to fix the problems in our lives. Not only is that an insult to Him, but we get in His way so He can’t fix the problems. It is time for us to stop trying to solve the problems in our lives and trust Jesus to solve them for us. He is more than able to bring us out of the dark valleys in this life and set us once again on the mountain tops of peace and happiness.

Have you been trying to tell Jesus how to solve the problems in your life? If so, stop it! Stop trusting in your own strength and trust Jesus to fix the problems in your life. You don’t have to be troubled and in distress all the time. Jesus wants you to be happy and He is waiting for you to come to Him for refuge. Cry out for help to the One who loves you so much that He died for you.
