Have you ever reached the point where you have nothing left in you? You feel as though you want to throw your hands up and walk away? You have no more energy; your emotional gas tank is empty. You have reached the point I call, “The Done.” Because you are quite simply, “done.” It is this helpless and powerless point that brings you to a cliff of your absolute last point of everything that is within you. Who do you turn to? Most people in this state lack the money for professional help; they are unable to defend themselves against whatever opposition they are facing as well. At this point you may find yourself feeling like no one cares for you or what happens to you. Is this you? Has this ever happened to you? 1
Now here is the truth my friends, you cannot put your trust in a person to pull you out of this! People may fail you and they may not intend to or do so on purpose (even though seem like they do). But there is someone who is always on your side, the Lord. The Lord is with you! When you reach the point of “The Done,” then call out to the Lord in prayer. Sure people say, “well, I pray.” I ask you, do you get on your knees with arms stretched out in submission to the King of Kings crying out to Him? Through prayer we can pull out of our tailspin and be reminded that God cares for us deeply as He always has! At times we feel caught in a deepening depression, and we are unable to pull ourselves out. At those times, we must come to the Lord and express our true feelings, reach out to Him, trust Him, and decide to do His Will! The Lord will deliver you, but it will be on His terms and in His timing just as it was for the Israelite’s in Exodus. Be faithful, be strong, and trust in the Lord our God! May He guide your way today!
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6 NASB)
