Just Ask

There are so many times in which we probably feel far away from God. It isn’t Him distancing Himself from us. It’s usually our sin driving a wedge instead. Whether it’s the result of purposeful disobedience or an overabundance of “busyness,” our broken communication with God can cause us to feel alienated and alone.

It’s often during these “dry spells” that adversity strikes. What will we do with the overwhelming chaos of it all?

We can call out to God.

No matter how far we’ve run from Him, He’s always there to run back to. Oftentimes we turn around to find Him right on our heels, not far from us at all. He’s been patiently waiting on our return and restoration.

And the adversity? He can handle it. He longs for us to ask Him to take over and take control. The battles have already been won—He just needs for us to relinquish our tightly held control and give everything over to Him.

What’s on your shoulders today? A whopping financial crisis? A broken relationship? A health scare?

Regardless of your regrets, ask God for help today. Ask Him to bring you to the “fortified city,” to lead you “to Edom.”
