th-55How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?  How long will you hide your face from me?How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me? Psalm 13:1-2 NIV

There is so much anguish that you are facing in life and it makes Me sad. Your inward turmoil is twofold – My perceived silence and your inability to control your thoughts. The pressures that you are now facing produce the fruits consistent with the presence of fear. 

Fear hides in the shadow and displays all of the “what if’s” and an unknown future to you. What if I am overcome and those against me win? What if I really am sick? What if I don’t have the strength to make it through this trial? What if no one comes to help me? What if I really can’t come up with the money? What if I lose my house? What if they die, how can I go on? What if God really has left me?

Sometimes, My silence is to help you start to look for me. When you begin to look for Me, you are shifting your focus away from your problems. In the dark,  you cannot see the person standing beside you. But, I am here. Listen for My still small voice.

My child, I will never, ever leave you. Bring your fears and Me together in your mind. Let my love and faithfulness expose their chains. I walk with you through your trials, no matter how dark or deep they may be. I will remain steadfast to show you where to place your next step. Together we will make it through each day. I promise to be with you and sealed it with My Spirit.

Whispers From Your Father, God
