God knows, right down to the final nub, exactly where you are in life.
He is aware.
And best of all, He is touched by it.
The enemy of our souls wants you to think differently. God doesn’t care. He’s left you in this mess for so many months. How unfair! Those around you, those at work, your neighbors, live like the devil, and they’re making it fine. And here you don’t even have a job. You don’t even have enough to cover the credit card bills. What kind of God is that?
Or maybe some young mother-to-be, stretched to the limit already with other young children and crushing responsibilities, cries out in her heart, “My situation is more than I can bear!”
And God replies, “My daughter, I know what I am doing. I know the pain of your heart right now. I know you feel overwhelmed, overloaded, pressed down. But believe Me, I am touched with your situation. And I have a plan! I am working out the details of your deliverance even now. Trust Me!”
