There are times—and this may be one of them for you—when troubles come thick, and there seems to be no end, and you cannot touch the bottom with your feet. Man is born to trouble, as Scripture says, as the sparks fly upward. But here is the encouraging word.
“I waited patiently for the Lord; And he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings” (Ps. 40:1-2).
God hears us when we cry out to Him. When it seems that He does not it is because He wants to deliver us from our troubles in a fashion that will glorify His name more, and which will be a greater delight to us when it happens. He is good, He is sovereign, and He is your God. This means that your troubles are perfectly suited to you. They are tailor-made, hand-stitched.
But we are not Stoics. The fact that all our troubles are perfect for us does not mean that we are to pretend that they are not troubles. No, they are troubles, but we are to receive them from the hand of the only wise God. But we do this by seeking the deliverance that is just as perfect for us as the troubles.
God writes perfect stories, and really good stories are full of troubles. Nobody would take the trouble to read The Lord of the Rings if the Council of Elrond had determined to have the eagles fly Frodo into Mordor to drop the ring into Mt. Doom as they flew over. A book without troubles is a book that no one would take the trouble to read.
God brings you through troubles so that He might be glorified when He brings you out of them. He is glorified when He takes you out of the horrible pit, and sets your feet on the rock. This Table is that Rock. It is here that God will establish your goings.
So come, and welcome, to Jesus Christ.
