Bible Verse of the Week: Trust in God During Times of Trouble

"They cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and He delivered them from their distress. He led them by a straight way." Psalm 107:6-7a

This verse instills a deep trust in the Lord in my heart. Vast changes or undesirable circumstances often arise the fleshly question of "Why?" to God. It is wrong to question Him, but we sometimes cannot refrain from wondering if God has forsaken us. It is in these times that it is important to remember that such trials are necessary for the testing and strengthening of our faith in our Christian lives. Amidst it all, we experience the faithfulness of God as He guides us through it all. David experienced this which caused him to confidently declare, "The LORD will fulfill His purpose for me." (Psalm 138:8a) I encourage you to face your trials with trust in God that He has a purpose for all things in your life. ~Jesselyn
