The restlessness of the soul and the emptiness often endured will always accompany the error of the world to look inwards for answers. Its rebellion engulfs every one of our senses, promising what it is not authorized to give. Somethings lost or sought after by those who are spiritually dead can never be satisfied outside of the will of God.
1 Samuel 2:6
“The Lord kills and makes alive;
He brings down to Sheol and raises up.
We recognize the hungry look of loneliness, the desire to be made whole, to be loved, to belong. This is precisely the area where the human condition makes us vulnerable to deception. At times, we ourselves, unsatisfied with the direction of our lives or the simplicity of it, may find it easier to take matters into our own hands only to discover that while we may have found a solution, it is rarely the correct answer to our situation or circumstances. Somethings can present themselves to be much more complicated than that when we are met with an unexpected tragedy that makes its way into our lives. Whether this may be in the form of the death of a loved one or in the suffering of an injustice carried out against us, our limited understanding of the will of God will often place us at the disadvantage of acting on impulse or ill advice.
Even so, we must stop and consider our situation with somethings in mind, that we are redeemed of every thing through the death and resurrection of Christ and furthermore are not only made whole in His grace and mercy but are called to His righteousness. A new creation before the Lord, who through our tribulations have not only lifted us up high but are protected by the mighty right hand of God who is all powerful.
‘You have granted me life and lovingkindness;
And Your care has preserved my spirit.
