Poker Chips and Help

So many people shake their fist, raise their voice &/or blame God when life’s events have pulled the rug from under their feet…

Others believe that God is punishing them…

Add in a mental health factor and away we go!

This verse in 2 Samuel says otherwise…

2 Samuel 14:14 (NLT): All of us must die eventually. Our lives are like water spilled out on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again.

But God does not just sweep life away;

instead, He devises ways to bring us back WHEN WE have been separated from Him.

Yes, we all will eventually waiver in our Christian walk… Mental health issues or not…

With mental health issues many, most, are well on their way path of separation…

With our free will, we can easily walk this way… and with deadly consequences…

BUT you can’t blame God! Look at the second part of the verse… Life isn’t like a poker chip in a game that He gambles with!

INSTEAD!

He tries and offers ways back to being in His comfort… There is ALWAYS a place to exit when life has caught us up in a tornado… ALWAYS!

This is the God who fed 5,000 with a few fish and bread, the God who split the Red Sea for the Israelites to cross through, the Jesus who raised Lazarus from the dead, The Christ who died on a cross…

It wasn’t at a poker game with Satan that has saved us…

It is His incredible, redeeming, all encompassing, forgiving and endless love…

He’s always around us… He’s only a thought, as simple as saying “help” ready to comfort us…

With my mental health issues, I didn’t even really look towards God for a long time…

It was only when I was totally broken that I sought God… And He was right there… He gave me hope when my faith was lost… He gave me unconditional love when all seemed black…

Simply He devises ways to bring ME back WHEN I had been separated from Him

The same help is there for everyone…

Psalm 142:5 (NLT): Then I pray to you, O Lord. I say, “You are my place of refuge. You are all I really want in life.

Just remember, God brings peace, love, hope…

It’s Satan who brings ANYTHING negative…

God has a way of getting immediately to Him… Just say help!
