When You Are At the End of Your Rope

What do you do when you feel like you are at the end of your rope?  The first thing a Christian should do is to turn to the Lord.  It is natural that we first turn to our family and friends for a solution; but at some point in your life you just might run into a problem that only God can resolve.  Instead of God being our last choice, He should be our first choice.  God’s love for us is so great that He knows the very number of the hairs on our head, and because He gave his only begotten Son to us, we have no reason to believe that He does not care about the challenging situations we face.

If we really believed that there is nothing too difficult for God, why do we leave God out of our daily lives? More importantly, God knows where you have been and where you are going.  God knows what is best for you and He alone knows what will hurt you or help you in the long run.  No one can counsel you or give you direction like your heavenly Father.  Life can be problematic and we can become anxious and worry because we don’t have the answers we need, but when you are at the end, God is just beginning.  You must first go to God in prayer and ask Him for His help, and if you seek Him with your whole heart, He promises that you will find Him.  What is also important is that you must be willing to do whatever God tells you to do regardless if you agree with Him or not because obedience is better than sacrifice.

Turn to God when you are at the end of your rope and watch Him get involved in your circumstances.  You will find that there is more rope available to you.  God will extend His hand to you so that your rope becomes longer and longer and you will not fall and you will not fail because if God is for you, who can be against you?  If you feel that you must be in the driver’s seat all of the time, you will miss God’s best for you.  Don’t be afraid to become a passenger.  Wouldn’t you rather be assured that you will reach your destination safely than take the risk of driving around without a map hoping that you will end up where you want to be?  Fasten your seatbelt and relax for God knows how to get you where you need to be and when you need to be there.
