When the Tide Goes Against You


Right now at this very moment, you have heard news where you lost your job.  Your wife may have left you and the stack of bills piled up overwhelm you. You may be a high school dropout with no chance of a job, an ex-felon with no place to go.  All your life you may even see yourself as a loser with no way out.

If you are as many other people, times are rough and really, the entire tide seems to be going against you.  Indeed, this may even be the umpteenth time you’ve lost everything.  Perhaps all your friends have also gone away with every circumstance going against you.

Will God intervene and Christ save you from this great mess?  No, probably not.  However, he may intervene, show you favor but not matter the outcome, God is always there with you for he promises to always be there with us in ever predicament.

Isaiah 41:13

For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

In this change of events you see, actually things couldn’t really be better for you for you have the hand of Almighty God standing there with you holding your hand.

Romans 8:31

If God is for us, who can be against us?

As a matter of fact, things may continue to go against you in your life.  I can’t say when things will get better or if they ever will.

If you have cancer, then you will probably still have cancer.  If you are broke and down and out, perhaps you’ll remain that way.

However, trusting in the Lord guarantees you a relationship, an audience with our creator and whatever blessing He chooses to follow you with.

The truth be told, you have indeed be a really bad person.  Or, you may come across as a great person.  God, though doesn’t chooses our outward personality.  Instead, he judges our hearts. The truth be known, we will NEVER be good enough to enter God’s company.

Aside from God’s promise to always remain with us for God, through His son, Jesus to forgive us our sins if we confess unto him.

Thus, your situation may stay the same, but more importantly, your relationship status evolves and changes.  Confession unto Jesus means that you are adopted into God’s kingdom exactly the way you are, good, bad or indifferent.

If the tide has turned against you, my suggestion is for you to reach out to your maker and ask him to help you.  Though all else fails, God’s Holy word remains:  He never Changes and promises to be there for us in our time of need.  I don’t know about you, but if I’m in dire straits and out on the streets, I want the comfort of my Heavenly Father to guide me out of my calamity.  Think of it.  He promises to hold our hand in the most dangerous travails of this world.  Call out to His Son today.  He is waiting for you with his angels.
