Let me encourage you today that if you want God to be God of your trouble, then you must let Him be God in your heart. God honors those who honor Him. If you’re facing problems, don’t just start kicking and screaming and begging Him to save you from them. Honor Him by going to His Word and doing what He says to do. We can be encouraged in our own difficulties, in those moments when we wish we could hide safely under the bed again, that God offers us that same place of protection, that same shelter and that same help as He did for King David.
“You are my hiding place; you shall preserve me from trouble; you shall surround me with songs of deliverance.” Psalm 32:7. As we trust in Him and come to Him with our troubles, God promises to be our safe hiding place as well. There is nothing more soothing than knowing the love of our Heavenly Father. He promises to never leave us nor forsake us. Granted, there may be times we feel as though He has neglected us, but He is always there.
