There are many people today who feel like they can’t catch a break. Bills, unexpected expenses, issues at work, relationship problems, a difficult child, may all seem to roll in like waves, one after the other, and never seem to subside. Or perhaps, it may feel like they come in all at once, like a tsunami, and threaten to overtake us.
There was a dream I once had. I was standing alone on a beach looking out at the waves. I saw in the distance, a Goliath-like wave forming and accelerating towards me at a high rate of speed. This wave only grew in size until it completely blocked out the sun. I was terrified and knew it was the end. There was nothing that could stop this mountain of a wave before me. I wanted to run and cried out, “God! Help me!” and in an instant, this apocalyptic wave transformed into a vaporous mist, and the sun reappeared again.
Maybe you find yourself in such a time where you feel like you have reached the end of the line; that all hope is gone. As long as we have breath, we can cry out to the One who can help us. He can, and will, come to our rescue. Experience His deliverance today!
God, I am beginning to sense worry, anxiety, and uncertainty fill my mind. Maybe I have been experiencing this feeling for so long, it no longer feels like I can escape, and I will soon be overtaken. Rescue me! Please be my help! Show me that You are God and be my salvation.
1 Kings 5:4 – “But now Adonai, my God, has given me rest on every side; there is neither adversary nor calamity.”
