Perhaps you find yourself in the midst of deep darkness and circumstances that seek to overwhelm you. If so, pray that God will help you hear His word, which promises, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5, NIV); which assures us that “all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28); and which calls us to “cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you” (Psalm 55:22). When God appears to be most absent in your life, He is still at work.
