How do you deal with things that are beyond your control? Perhaps it is a doctor visit where you will be getting results from a test that may be bad news. Or maybe it's that unexpected phone call in the middle of the night. Each of us from time to time have to deal with things that we have no control over. But how do we do it? Where do we go for answers, encouragement and strength?
Many choose to go to a friend, a spouse, and some just keep it bottled inside. Above all, our first person to go to should be the Lord. "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble." Psalm 46:1 He is the one that thoroughly knows all about every intimate detail in our life. He loves us more than any other person in this world.
Don't get me wrong, I feel that God has placed people in our lives to help us through situations as well - our spouse, a close friend, etc. But most importantly and firstly we need to turn to the Lord. Perhaps today you need to go to Him. Ask Him to be that refuge and to give you strength for whatever you are facing!
