At the End of Your Rope

“Who is among you that fears the Lord, that obeys the voice of His servant… let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God.” Isaiah 50:10

I have always been amazed at the advice worldly people give to someone who is hurting. “When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on!” Can you see someone dangling over a cliff, holding on to a rope, and trying to tie a knot? It takes two hands to do that!

The first thing we need to remember is “don’t demand to understand.” There are some things in life you and I just will never understand. When God allows darkness to overshadow your life, don’t set about lighting your own fire. That’s a recipe for heartache.

Trust that His light will come and wait for it. He will come. Believe it.

There’s someone out there who is hurting today and needs more than a pat answer of encouragement. Give them the light of Christ.
