From bad to worse

September 9th, 2013

I know a number of people who seem to see there life situation going from bad to worse. It seems they move from one bad thing to another and they never seem to have a “good break”.

I was reading Psalm 5:16-17 this morning and David gives us some wise words from the midst of his troubles…

“16 Turn to me and have mercy, for I am alone and in deep distress. 17 My problems go from bad to worse. Oh, save me from them all!”

As I was reading this I came across the notes from the Life Application Study Bible…

“Do life’s problems always seem to go from bad to worse? God is the only one who can reverse this downward spiral. He can take our problems and turn them into glorious victories.

The first and most important step is that we, like David, must cry out, “Turn to me and have mercy.” When we are willing to do that, God will do his work in us and in our situation.”

Today I would encourage you to cry out to God if your life seems to go from bad to worse. Kneel down and then look upwards in prayer.

God Bless,
