They wandered in the wilderness in a desolate way; They found no city to dwell in. Hungry and thirsty, Their soul fainted in them. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, And He delivered them out of their distresses. And He led them forth by the right way, That they might go to a city for a dwelling place. Psalms 107:4‭-‬7 NKJV

There are times in the Christian life when it seems you have come to a dead end; when it seems everything has turned upside down and the whole world is crashing on you. It is usually a time of complete dryness, a time when nothing seems to work again.

At such a time, it may even seem as if God has forgotten and abandoned you. You call for help and no one sees you or answers or any hope seems to be in view. Usually, it is a time of complete blackout and a time when the heavens appear to have been closed against you.

In such a terrible and distressing situation, there’s no alternative way other than to turn to God and cry unto Him in fervent and earnest prayer. At such a time, you must not give up but look up, you must not concede defeat but rise in the arms of faith and cry out to God. When you do all that, God will surely reach out to you to rescue you.

God will not allow you to be stranded and defeated but He will take you by His hand and lead you to a City He has built for you to dwell and enjoy His goodness. It’s not over for you yet, there’s still hope for your future! Call upon God NOW and you will yet find Him faithful. Good morning and do have a refreshing day.

Your brother,
