Saved For A Purpose

I received a call from a friend of mine the other night, and he was literally drowning. He didn’t have anyone to confide in, all of his friends left him, his father and mother went blind to his crisis, and he was left bleeding. He is a strong man, and he has never allowed himself to wallow in self-pity, but there was a crisis that he experienced years ago, that left him drowning.

Have you ever read the story of The Parable of the Good Samaritan, Luke 10:25-37? When we think about our own lives, how many times do we pass by someone who may be homeless? Can you recall a time in your life when you wished someone would have came to your rescue? I prayed for my friend and Jesus met him in his crisis just in time before he hit rock bottom. It is important to remember that Jesus is always with us, speaking to us in a still small voice, if only we would take the time to listen.

When you experience an obstacle and or financial hardship, sometimes it is best to rest in God’s presence and seek His guidance before making any drastic decisions. When we take the time to listen to His voice, we will be able to understand the lessons He maybe trying to teach us during the crisis.

As you continue to examine your own life, is there an area where God maybe trying to get your attention?
