Despair

Many people in our self-serving society are slowly coming to the end of their resources, whether they be physical, mental or emotional and feelings of helplessness overwhelm them.

Cheap loans turn out to be anything but cheap.

The drugs and alcohol that promised so much fun, have now turned into the monster of addiction.

The job that promised so much at the interview turned out to be nothing more than slavery to targets and time.

The illicit sex that was so exciting is now nothing more than unpaid prostitution.

The job has gone and the mortgage has maxed out your resources.

And believe it or not, it is now fashionable in some circles to see how far people can degrade themselves and so justify their lack of self- worth and self-loathing.

Have you ever heard someone say, 'I'm sick to death of all this, there is no hope left for me!'

Where is God in all this?

God is allowing you to get to the end of yourself and the beginning of Him.

One of His greatest gifts to us is the freedom to choose.

Joshua said to the Israelites, "Choose this day whom you will serve, ............., but as for me and my household we will serve the Lord." Joshua 24:15

 Life is made up of choices good and bad, and they all have concequences. Wise parents often allow their older wayward and rebellious children to experience these consequences.  Although this may causes the parents endless anguish, it is often the only way their children learn. 

****************

 Never think for a moment that God is unmindful of your situation.

He is the Ultimate Loving and Wise Parent!

He is waiting for you, in your hopeless situation to turn to Him for the help that only He can give - a new beginning and a new start in Jesus the Messiah.

He will send out the hound of heaven, namely the Holy Spirit to lead you to Himself.

Cry out, He is ever mindful to hear the genuine cry for HELP!

He can supply all your needs from His riches in glory; there is no want in God's provision.

This painting portrays your need.

God says, "All your goodness is like filthy rags before Me." Isaiah 64:6

"Come now, and let us reason together, though your sins are like scarlet, come and I will wash you whiter than snow.." Isaiah 1:18
