Feeling Low?

Friday, June 9, 2006 (12:39 pm)

Psalms 147:3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.

My wife was telling me about a conversation she had the other day, with an Israeli friend, a born evangelist and wonderful woman of God, who's been experiencing some difficulties. A set of complicated circumstances have occurred in her life over the past year, and to make matters worse, people, sadly even fellow believers, have been judging her, saying that she must be doing something wrong or be in some kind of sin, to be in her situation. Furthermore she added that she didn't feel she has a great testimony right now and as a result, hasn't been able to share God's love and truth much because of the way she feels people see her.

That makes me angry. Satan is so cruel! And I think most of the time we don't even realize how he manipulates people and situations so that people are hurt and ultimately the Gospel cannot go forth.

What this lovely lady doesn't realize is that she does have a great testimony. Quite frankly, she has the best testimony anyone could have! She is clinging to Jesus through this troubling time in her life — and that is a huge testimony! It's easy to love and praise God when we're comfortable and have everything we need but much, much harder to do it when things get tough.

Maybe you can relate to our troubled friend's feelings today. Please be encouraged by this: It is only in the low places the Lord meets us with a special strength to overcome things we could never conquer ourselves. It is only in the low places that we can identify with His suffering. It is only in the low places that we can identify with others suffering. Don't back away. Run to His embrace. Receive His love and mercy. And give it away to others in need. There's so much work to be done.
