Scripture Designs 07

At different points of life, we will find different trials overwhelming us. Where do we flee when overwhelmed? Do we flee to Christ or some temporal substitute?

This is a beautiful verse to read before Psalm 145:14-19. Who are we, that God would help us? Yet He does SO much for us!
"14 The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down. 
15 The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season. 
16 Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing. 
17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works. 
18 The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. 
19 He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them."

"Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. 
14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. 15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 
17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. 
18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace." James 3:13-18

What is our first response when we face something too big for us? Do we go directly to God, or wait and spend time worrying about something that He alone can do?
