God is with You in Crisis | Facing Your Blitz Weekly Video Devotion
Nothing makes us more vulnerable than tragic and painful stuff that happens to our children. Here’s inspiration from parents who have faced the nightmare of critical injuries to their daughter.
“When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in His spirit and greatly troubled. And he said, “Where have you laid him?” They said to him, “Lord, come and see.” Jesus wept. So the Jews said, “See how he loved him!” John 11:33-37, ESV
“Hear my prayer, LORD, listen to my cry for help; do not be deaf to my weeping.” Psalm 39:12, NIV
When something terrible happens do you sprint to God? Is He your first and only refuge? Consider the way Jesus wept when he experienced the sorrow and loss of two sisters when their brother Lazarus died. Consider the emotions gushing from the Father in Heaven when His son was betrayed, arrested, tortured and crucified. God feels your feelings deeper than you. Faith in Him is the answer to every tragedy and every fear. His love transcends fear.
Find a quiet spot and have a conversation with God…for at least 15 minutes. Ask Him to help you feel what Jesus felt when Lazarus died and what the Father felt when Jesus died. Thank God that He raised Jesus to eternal life. Thank Him that His love, His presence and His power are available to you. Decide to sprint to Him in any challenge.
