Tragedy has struck so many of us, rocking into our very core. We don’t understand why these things happen, there is no reasonable explanation. There is no justification of how something so terrible could be allowed into our lives. We have no idea why this painful event had to happen and the grief that has stricken us is so deep and painful. There are no words that can comfort. There are no reasons that make sense. God is love. He is perfect. He is all-knowing. So how can He allow such debilitating things happen in our lives?
As we all go through such tragic events in our lives, satan loves to call “Checkmate”. He knows we can not understand the why. He knows we try to rationalize these terrible events. He knows we need to process them and try to reason them out. He wants us to feel that he has our chess king totally surrounded. He wants us to feel there are no more moves to make. He wants us to feel completely helpless.
Well I have news for satan today, we all can say “I Don’t Think So”. We all have one more move and that is down to our knees. We serve an all-loving, all-knowing, all-amazing God that always has another move to make. There maybe nothing we can do in our circumstances but our All-Powerful Heavenly Father says give it to me, I’ll take care of the pain, of the sorrow, of the unknown and will replace it with peace that surpasses all understanding, joy that rises in the morning and He will make a move in our lives that will make satan realize…he messed with the wrong person.
Isaiah 43:2 “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.”
Psalm 34:18 “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”
So when your heart aches like no tomorrow, you feel there are no more moves to make and you are desperately trying to find your way in the midst of the storm…
Pour your heart out to Him. Tell Him exactly how you feel. Explain your frustrations. God has big shoulders that you can lean on.
Let the King of Kings and Lord of Lords hear you speak for He will not leave you stranded. He will not leave you crushed, sad or alone. He will rise up on your behalf and show you HIS next move! God always has another move and nothing…and I do mean absolutely nothing…will stand in His way.
