Excerpted from Streams in the Desert – “March 1, ‘Consider what God has done; Who can straighten what he has made crooked?’ (Ecclesiastes 7:13)

God often seems to place His children in places of deep difficulty, leading them into a corner from which there is no escape. He creates situations that human judgment, even if consulted, would never allow. Yet the cloudiness of the circumstance itself is used by Him to guide us to the other side. Perhaps this is where you find yourself even now.

Your situation is filled with uncertainty and is very serious, but it is perfectly right. The reason behind it will more than justify Him who brought you here, for it is a platform from which God will display His almighty grace and power.

He will not only deliver you but in doing so will impart a lesson that you will never forget. And in days to come, you will often return to the truth of His mercy, yet you will be unable to ever thank God enough for doing what He has done.”

How appropriate a message for anyone that finds themselves in a desperate position.

Once again I choose to cling to Him and see where this journey leads….

"I Peter II 5:6,7 Humble yourselves under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast your worries on Him because he cares for you."

Our God is faithful; He has proven this over and over to me.
