Today's Devotion-Refuge in times of Trouble

by Pastor Bong Gonzales

2 Chronicles 20:12
O our God, will you not judge them? For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon you." NIV

This year was ushered to us with many exciting event in our history. The first African American President took an oath. Which has been covered by all news and headlines all over the world, almost simultaneous with the increasing number of people worldwide who were laid off and lost their job.

As a believer we recognize that these events and developments are not happening by chance but by divine providence. God always brings hope in any given situation to lead people to recognize Him as the source of life and blessing!

We might mistakenly consider to find our help in man, but though man will do everything he could, he will always come to his limits. That's why in situations like we have today may we seek our help in God through...

1. recognizing His capability;
2. remembering and believing His promises; and
3. resolving to trust in God.

As of this writing, I received messages of some brethren who just lost their job, a sudden change of life, especially to those whose dependence is in their good employment! But thank God, that He taught us to place our trust in Him.

We might lost our employment, but it does not mean we lost our blessing and provision, for God is our supply!

You might be in the most troubled time of life, but this is also your most privileged time to enjoy the power, the love and the goodness of God!

Please read the whole story of King Jehoshapat and see yourself in the same way God brought their deliverance and help!

Let's settle our case in God's hand!
