“Do not be far from me, for trouble is near and there is no one to help.”
When all you can see is everything that is going wrong around you don’t forgot that God is right there too. He’s right in the midst of it. Block out everything else is and focus in on Him. It can be hard to cover our eyes and ears to all the chaos, but I feel like some of the best peace you’ll find is when you absolutely don’t want to give in to God, but do it anyway. For me that happens when I’m in my car driving and I just want to either sit in silence or blast a random station. I don’t feel like pursuing God in that moment, praying, praising, etc. but I do it. That’s when I feel Him the most. When I say yes I’m surround by a lot, but I’m going to submerge myself in you God. Anytime you turn away from human flesh desires is a battle won. Whatever your situation may look like speak these words over you. “It may look like I’m surrounded but I’m surrounded by you.” Choose what you see.
