If You are in Trouble….

If you are in a troubled situation right now, do not go to the door, any door – be still.

…and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”Psalm 50:15

Your mind is full of thoughts – take them captive.

“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5

Everything you want to do at this moment – lay it down.

“What greater act of love is there than sacrificing yourself for others? Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice not for one of us, but for everyone who accepts him, because he laid down his life for us we should lay down our lives for others.”  John 15:13

Nothing is more important right now than you bringing your mind and spirit and body into submission to Christ.  You can’t do that without his help.  Ask him for help to submit, and say it out loud.

“…in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”       Proverbs 3:6

Every fiber of your being is crying, what is the core of your heart crying for?                    Are you crying for what you want, for pity, or crying out in repentance?

Read Psalm 51 out loud

 

Do not rely on your own understanding,

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5

You are in the middle of a spiritual war – you cannot see, you do not have a strategy but Jesus does!

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”  John 10:10

So “seek first the Kingdom of God” Matthew 6:25:33

Pray for His will to be done Matthew 6:9-13 The Lord’s Prayer

If you cannot pray, if you cannot bring yourself to speak the truth, allow others to surround you and pray for you.

“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”   James 5:16
