God Never Gets A Wrong Address…
Acts 17 tells us that God determines the exact place where we’ll live and the exact length of our lives. Your life isn’t out of control. What you’re facing isn’t the result of God forgetting you. God hasn’t turned his back on the promises He made to you. I know it’s hard to grasp, but what you’re facing is the result of God being faithful to His promises to you.
God is in the middle of the mess with you. God is up to something good in the mess. God takes us where we don’t want to go in order to produce in us what we couldn’t achieve on our own – character!
You’re never alone. The One who’s with you is up to something very good and because He is, there really is mercy to be found right smack dab in the middle of the mess!
Psalm 46 tells us that “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
If you’re God’s child, you’ve never been in a location all by yourself. You’ve never endured difficulty in isolation. Why? Because God is always with you and He is there so that you would have a place to run (“refuge”) and help in your moments of greatest discouragement and weakness (“strength”).
