Lifelines–“I Am Beyond Help…God Cannot Hear”

lifeline_t_nvI’m beginning a new series of posts today that I’m calling lifelines. These will will be short posts meant to address pressing concerns that all Christians face from time to time. My contention in this series is that when we encounter suffering and sorrow in this life what we need more than anything else is a lifeline to hold onto. These passages of Scripture are meant to be just that.

When I feel as if I am beyond help and/or that God cannot hear my cries for rescue I need to grab hold of…

Isaiah 59:1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not so short that it cannot save; nor His ear so dull that it cannot hear.”

Every Christian experiences times when they feel hopeless, as if no one can help. Perhaps you’re experiencing a financial crisis or maybe you feel as if you’re family is falling apart. Having served in full time ministry for nearly 12 years now, I know that there are many occasions for despair in the ministry. Perhaps you feel like you can’t meet everyone expectations. Or perhaps you’re scared to death of the next meeting you’ll have with that angry man. Or perhaps you’re just plain overwhelmed in a sea of tasks that never seem to really get accomplished. These are the kinds of occasions that call out for a reminder that God’s hand is not so short that He cannot save you and a promise that His ear is not so dull that He cannot hear. Child of God know this, God is attentive to your cries and He is able to save you from all of your adversities.
