Imagine you were driving your car and the fuel got finished, or you discovered you have a flat tyre, how do you feel? The position where people want to work but there is no tool, can be disturbing as well. The Israelites, under the command of King Saul and Jonathan, came to fight against the Philistines, but had no weapon to fight with. They had to go a long way to sharpen their weapons for the war. They even had to go to their enemies, the Philistines, to sharpen them. It was really a bad situation, but not hopeless.
Variously, we have come into situations that got us down-cast, where nothing appeared to be working for us. In fact, we, find that which should have been an easy ride suddenly turned sour. Things may seem very bad sometimes, but it is not totally hopeless.
The case of the woman with the issue of blood was bad, but not hopeless [Matt. 9:20-22].The lame man who had been sick for 38 bad years and could not get into the pool [John 5:5-8] waiting for the stirring of the waters by the angel was bad, but not hopeless. The siege of Samaria in those days was a bad situation that brought about severe famine where people ate their own children, was bad but not hopeless (2Kings 6:24ff).The case of dead Lazarus for four days stinking [John 11:39] was terribly bad, but not hopeless.
Your situation may be bad by your assessment, but it is not as bad as you think it is because the Lord will not forsake you in your situation. Even your sins are not seen by the Lord as a reason to punish you; it is your rejection of salvation that will send you into judgment. The prodigal son’s situation was bad but not hopeless. The Lord is always merciful as we have seen in the case of the Israelites and the examples alluded to here. So The Lord will not forsake you as long as a mother cannot forsake her child.
1 Samuel 12:22– For the Lord will not forsake His people for His great name’s sake: because it hath pleased the Lord to make you His people.
Lord, let Your rod and staff comfort me every day of my life whether, in the storm or in the time of peace, for in Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
