Messed up… excuse the language but too many people now are also messed up and who can you really blame themselves, the devil, God, their mother, their father, others?
Legitimate or not I often have people coming to me telling me their sob stories, and I next still have rightfully often wondered why I seem to hear from them only in the bad times, and is that how they treat even God now as well? and why they are in trouble now too?
For it does still seem that troubles do have a way of making many of us turn to God.. especially when a doctor says there is nothing further he can do.. and when it seems you have fallen into a dark pit and there is no other way out.. and some people say there are no atheist in a war zone, fox hole?but here is where some charlatans, crooks come in too.. they say send me your prayers and your money of course and things next will be better for you, but after you send in your prayer requests and money nothing positive happens that seems to be too often rather the case next too.
So who can you next trust to help you? the adulterous , abusive Church pastor, the priest, the teacher, even those persons that abuse others, molest children, or the too often lying no good lawyers, Politicians, bad cops now too often as well?
The Bible clearly indicates to us all often of many great saints who had also face unexpected, insurmountable obstacles, problems and they next conquered them too.. not by turning to mere men and women, but turning directly to GOD alone in humbleness, desperation too. (Psa 51:17 KJV) The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Yes it is better to trust in God alone, directly then in mere man, in others..
But what next often has astonished me, so many professing Christians do not even now how to hear directly God’s vioice, instructions, as to what to do next? and they are likely very typical of the 95 percent professing Christians who do not read their Bibles more than 5 minutes a day, never mind even next practice what the Bible says we all should too.(Psa 118:4 KJV) Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy endureth for ever.(Psa 118:5 KJV) I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place.(Psa 118:6 KJV) The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?(Psa 118:7 KJV) The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.(Psa 118:8 KJV) It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.(Psa 118:9 KJV) It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.(Psa 118:10 KJV) All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them.(Psa 118:11 KJV) They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
(Psa 118:12 KJV) They compassed me about like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
(Psa 118:13 KJV) Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me.
(Psa 118:14 KJV) The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.
(Psa 118:15 KJV) The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
(Psa 118:16 KJV) The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
(Psa 118:17 KJV) I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.
(Psa 118:18 KJV) The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death.
(Psa 118:19 KJV) Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD:
(Psa 118:20 KJV) This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.
(Psa 118:21 KJV) I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.
(Psa 118:22 KJV) The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
(Psa 118:23 KJV) This is the LORD’S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.
(Psa 118:24 KJV) This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
(Psa 118:28 KJV) Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee.
(Psa 118:29 KJV) O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
