Where do you turn in times of trouble?
It may be as serious as an IED exploding or as routine as a supervisor chewing you out, but you need something or someone to comfort you. To what or whom you turn says a lot about what you think will work best for you.
“And one shall say,
‘Heap it up! Heap it up!
Prepare the way, take the stumbling block out of the way of My people.’
“For thus says the High and Lofty One
Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:
‘I dwell in the high and holy place,
With him who has a contrite and humble spirit,
To revive the spirit of the humble,
And to revive the heart of the contrite ones,’” (Isaiah 57:14-15, NKJV).
Isaiah encourages us to turn to God, who is not only powerful, but also willing to meet us when we have hit rock bottom. Though divine, God is still accessible and desires to reinforce our crumbling hearts.
