When life’s issues happen upon us and we are looking for someone that will listen and perhaps help out we can sometimes feel as though we are speaking but no one is listening. When this happens we become frustrated and look for other ways to find comfort. This month’s main topic talks about how some folks will turn to eating or drinking to find comfort and why that is not a good idea.
Despite what we feel, we have someone who is always listening and better yet someone who is willing to help if we will only allow Him to; His name is Jesus Christ. We read inPsalm34:6 “This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles”. It matters not whether we are rich or poor, nor what color or nationality we are, if we ask in faith our Lord will listen. Isaiah 45:22 says “Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other”.
The best part is our Lord never changes. You will not get one answer one day and a different answer the next. We can’t always say that about the people we know. The book of John talks about how when our soul prospers and we are led by God that He will direct us on a direct and easy path.
So the real question isn’t – Is Anybody Listening? Rather the real question we should be asking ourselves is – Am I talking to the right person?
Life came with an owner’s manual; it’s called The Holy Bible and in it you can and will find answers to any problem you may encounter. Life can sometimes be hard, but it becomes even harder when we try to seek answers without God’s help.
