God loves us so much that He will not leave us in our mess alone. It is a foregone conclusion that if we are persecuted and tormented that God will deliver us. But, what about when through our own bad decisions, rebellion, and missteps, we end up in trouble? How does God respond?
God responds like any loving parent would. While we are heading into trouble, His heart is breaking because He knows where our decisions will lead us. He is also sending warnings through situations and people. But, when we get in trouble, He is in great expectation that you will come to yourself and call on Him. Because it is our freewill that gets us into trouble, God knows that our freewill decision is required before He can get involved to bring us out.
But, in the middle of our situation, when we call out to God for help, He will not ignore us! He will respond by sending us a deliverer! We see this in the book of Judges, repeatedly! They did what was right in their own eyes and then they ended up in bondage! The moment they called out to God, He sent help! He will do that for you as well.
Don’t spend your time beating up on yourself about the wrong decisions you’ve made. Just call out to God for help. He will help you today get out of whatever you are in!
