~~Feel like Trouble on Every Side?

God woke me up EARLY this morning as usual with this topic...

Is there ever a point in your life when you feel you have trouble on every side?

Define Trouble:
to disturb the mental calm and contentment of; worry; distress; agitate.
to put to inconvenience, exertion, pains, or the like: 
to cause bodily pain, discomfort, or disorder to; afflict: 
to annoy, vex, or bother: 
to disturb, agitate, or stir up so as to make turbid, 

  Seems every phone call or text message is trouble, stress, depression, and affliction. Just some type of attack from the enemy. You feel like ever two steps you make to get ahead, it seems as if your kicked back five more steps by unforeseen circumstance.  You start to screen your phone calls and check your voice mail less.

Do not get weary in your well doing! God has not left you nor has he forsaken you. If you feel you have trouble on your right & you left, know you have grace & mercy with you as well. 
God's angels following you through every situation and trouble.

Hebrews 4:16:
  Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Learn how to call upon the Lord at all times such as good times, bad times, and troubled times. In those moments, when you are confused on what to do, when to do and how to do it. 
Learn to seek God in everything and you will always be ahead of the game. 

Psalm 46

   1God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
   2Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

Sometimes as women, we carry someone else trouble, we just pick up there problems and make them our own. No one asked us to do it. We just do it. We're more worried about the outcome then the person in the situation. We are out trying to find solutions when their sitting at home waiting for the problem to solve itself. First, we must learn to....help the person pray for themself. Yes, it is ok to want to help and we as women all have a mothering nature within us and we want to mother adults. I learned, you will only make yourself miserable, trying to mother grown folks. People have to learn to depend on God and not depend on man or well you! So we must teach them how to go to God by going to God with them. 

Psalm 121

   1I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
   2My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
   3He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

By doing so, we will help build their faith in God, and recognize he is all power. We must help other run to God for them self and not to us as life savers. God is this alpha and omega. He know our beginning, end, and middle. Sometimes we get in God's way with dealing with someone by always trying to take his glory in saving the day. How does God get his testimony if your taking the exam for them. In school, that is considered cheating, we are not allowed to cheat. 

Jer 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you;

Also, learn how to go to the bible for direction and answers. Allow God to be God. Let him do something, cause you can't do everything, he can do all things.  Build your relationship with God and help someone build their relationship with God as well.  In order to really know who God is and what he can do, you got to spend time with him and get to know him. Learn his will for your life through your relationship with him. He will even let you see what is really going on in the troubled times. Surprisingly, he will tell you what to do in those times as well. No it is not really a surprise, he is our father, he takes care of his children.

Psalm 33:20-22:
   20Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.
   21For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
   22Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.

Always believe God will take care of you, through every obstacle, trouble, affliction, confusing moment, unsure decisions, and every attack of the enemy. 
Psalm 22:19:
19But be not far from me, O Lord; O my Help, hasten to aid me!

God will take CARE of you! Trouble? God is the answer. So when trouble calls..CALL GOD!
