He Will Be There

By Greg Laurie

 

 

 

LISTEN  

 

 

“This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.”

—Psalm 91:2

 

 

As a pastor, I’ve done far too many funeral services for children. I’ve looked at parents sitting in the front row and tried to find the right words to bring comfort to them. Before our son Christopher went to Heaven, I would walk away from those services thinking, “I hope this never happens to me because if it did, I don’t think I could handle it.”

 

But then one day it did happen to me. And we were the parents sitting in the front row at the funeral service. Here’s what I can tell you: No matter what you go through, God will be there for you and with you.

 

Maybe you’ve seen someone going through a hardship and thought, “I don’t think I could handle that.” You don’t have the strength you need now to deal with that yet. But God will give you what you need, when you need it—not necessarily before and certainly not after.

 

God doesn’t always deliver us from our circumstances. God doesn’t always take the problems away. But we can glorify Him despite our problems.

 

Then there are times when God allows hardship in our lives so that He can step in and deliver us from it, and people will be amazed. Maybe the Lord wants to heal you of something or deliver you from something. A disability can turn into an ability when we place it in God’s hands. A disadvantage can turn into an advantage.

 

Have you had a tragedy or problem in your life that has gotten your attention? Call out to the Lord, and He will save you. In some instances, He may even rescue you.

 

Wherever you are in life, God is ready to step in and bring comfort to you. He’s ready to bring hope to you. But you must come to Him.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
