Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me.
Psalm 138:7 KJV
You are a sojourner in ephemeral time.
The universal law of human life is summed up in one word—walking.
Life is a walk, a journey, and constant action forward.
Walking means constant change of position.
Yesterday’s circumstances are gone forever.
Today’s circumstances will be in the past tomorrow.
Life’s walk is constant—the wheels of life never pause.
Life’s walk is rapid—a morning mist evaporating in blazing sun, a short story.
Life’s walk is irretraceable—you cannot live one day again.
Emily Dickinson is right, “That it will never come again
is what makes life so sweet.”
Each step you take brings you one step nearer your final destination.
You are surrounded by earthly trouble.
Life’s walk is not always on green grass under cloudless sky.
There is much to enjoy on earth, but life is frequently problematic.
Time educates you for eternity—adversity is My university.
In hard circumstances, I teach you lessons you would not learn otherwise.
You are supported by eternal trustworthiness.
The Grand Support of Human Life is equal to all your emergencies.
I pledge that I will give you strength enough for every troublesome day.
Corrie ten Boom said it well—“If God sends you on rough roads,
He gives you iron shoes.”
I am El Shaddai, the One Who is Enough, Almighty God—
sufficient for every circumstance, eventuality, or probability.
I am an ever present—not absent!—help in trouble.
I am omniscient—I know your cares.
I am omnipotent—I can help you.
I am omnipresent—I am always with you.
I keep you in trouble—far better than keeping you from trouble.
I will finish what I started in you—we will embrace at the end of the road.
