Mid-Week Devotional with Chris Chase
"Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; for I trust in you." (Psalm 143:8) If you are a victim of mistreatment, God has a hundred different messages to give you during your dungeon experience. He knows just what message you need at the right time and all it takes to receive it is a sensitive, obedient, trusting heart. Not a heart preoccupied with revenge or bitterness or hostility, but a heart that says, "Lord, God, help me now. Right at this moment. Deliver me from this prison. Help me to see clearly beyond the darkness and to see Your hand. As I am being crushed, remold me. Help me to see You in all this." Pray a prayer like this and turn your trial into trust as you look to God to tenderly use that affliction, or dungeon, or abandonment for His purpose. And, in the midst of all this, remember, God has not abandoned you. He has not forgotten you. He never left. He understands the heartache!
