When You’re Down and Out, God Will Be Your Way Out

Sep 9, 2012 | by The Praying Woman

Sometimes we become so dependent on people, we forget that God is our sole provider.

When I think back on my adult life, I’ve always had someone to lean on in my time of need; Someone who I counted on to bail me out of trouble. When I was married, It was my husband. After my divorce, It was my mother. After my mom’s death, it was my aunt… And so on and so on. When I lost my job, the first thing that ran through my mind was, for the first time in my life, I have no one to depend on. I had put all my trust and faith in the people around me, But I never acknowledged the fact that it was God who was using them to bless me. I soon found out that God has a way of humbling people. It seemed the more I asked the people around me for help, the more they rejected me and the more I depended on someone to save me, the deeper I fell into trouble. I was losing everything, my job, my home, my car, and was about to lose my mind. I couldn’t understand why God was allowing all this to happen to me, but then it hit me! I remember crying as I was driving in my car one day, and I pulled over and just began to call on God’s name. I promised Him that if He delivered me from the mess I was in, I would never depend on anyone else BUT HIM!

Sometimes God will allow us to continue to go through the storm, until we learn the lesson it is supposed to teach us. If you’re going through it right now, Figure out what it is that God wants you to learn from it. The sooner, The better!

    Wow! I lost my job on Sept 7th and saw it coming. It was no fault of my own, just circumstances. A couple of days before it happened, I got on my knees and cried out to God for him to deliver me. The day I lost my job, I actually got a call that very night from a lady who prayed to the Lord for guidance on who to hire. She came across my résumé she had on file for over a year and called me at 7 that night. (How many people get offered a job at night without a recent interview? I hadn’t had contact with this company for over a year!). No one but God delivered me and her, too!!! God is SO good. Like the lady in the article, I have no other person to depend on financially. It was so scary! It’s made me realize without Him, I am nothing! He IS my father and my husband! He is a father to the fatherless, a husband to the widow. Thank you Jesus!

    I believe the sooner you understand this the faster your problems will be resolved…..Our higher being will put people in your path to help. But at some point you might have exhausted them all…What works best is Is go directly to him 1st….I know this from experience :)

    I reached a point a few years ago when I realized I really had no human beings to lean on. Of course there are acquaintances and siblings, but not to lean on or save me. I feel truly alone in the flesh at times but always accompanied by the Holy Spirit in my soul.

    When I left home as a youngster, I had to go to the city to be trained..What makes this predicament interesting…is that for 1 8 years, I had only went to “town” once or twice a year!! Dad and Mom had ten children! Well, you can read between the lines. After my arrival in the city, I didn’t have anyone except the Lord..This was humility at it’s best..God provided a special bus driver that would wait through green lights for me! God saved this country “bumpkin” for a reason..He simply loved me. It’s easy to believe what we see; however, it’s blessed to believe in God Whom we cannot see, but trust anyway.This is when my belief in God first got tested..without Dad and Mom..beside me..Thank You, God, for the many, many lessons in life where we are forced to believe to prove Your love and protection..Otherwise, How would we find a MORE PERFECT LOVE?
