3개월 전

Currently we are living in a time of uncertainty where the world has been shaken and until today we do not know with truth the gravity of what we are experiencing in the face of a pandemic that plagues humanity every day and brings with it a lot of anxiety and lack of control in society, but in these times it is of utmost importance that believers in God seek his face more so that we do not allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by fear because just as we want this pandemic to go forever we must also thirst for God in the midst of it.

We must seek and adore God in these difficult times and thirst for his word because God makes his presence felt along with those who adore him as he wishes. during this time.

Psalms 42
As the deer bellows by the currents of the waters,
Thus my soul cries out for you, O God.
2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God;
When will I come and present myself before God?
3 My tears were my bread day and night,
While they say to me every day: Where is your God?
4 I remember these things, and pour my soul into myself;
How I went with the crowd, and led it to the house of God,
Among voices of joy and praise of the people in celebration.
5 Why do you break down, my soul,
And you are disturbed inside me?
Wait on God; because I have yet to praise him,
My salvation and my God.
6 My God, my soul is downcast in me;
I will therefore remember you from the land of the Jordan,
And from the Hermonites, from Mount Mizar.
7 An abyss calls another to the voice of your waterfalls;
All your waves and your waves have passed over me.
8 But by day Jehovah will command his mercy,
And at night his song will be with me,
And my prayer to the God of my life.
9 I will say to God: My rock, why have you forgotten me?
Why will I walk in mourning for the oppression of the enemy?
10 As one who strikes my bones, my enemies reproach me,
Saying to me every day: Where is your God?
11 Why are you downcast, my soul,
And why are you disturbed within me?
Wait on God; because I have yet to praise him,
My salvation and my God.

This psalm is an example of the need for God in times of crisis. As the psalmist asks, when will I come and present myself before God, obviously because his soul thirsts for him, he was living through very difficult times and needed the presence of God to continue

It is in these moments of greatest need that the spirit of faith speaks to the depressed soul making our gaze deviate from the circumstances and turn towards the face of God.
We must take refuge in God since he is our rest and refuge in times of tribulations

The feelings of anguish battle against the facts of faith and are strengthened by the embarrassing questions of the enemies, but God will always take care of his people in every circumstance, he more than anyone yearns to protect us and give us security in the midst of affliction.

Let us present ourselves before God with that longing and thirst to seek his presence in this time of difficult situations since we will always see his glory and his favor in us what we believe in his promises.

Let us not allow our souls to fall, but rather we will tear our souls before God to receive his opportune help and fill us with his presence.
