My Space

2 05 2008

The other day I was telling a group of people about when, as teenagers, 5 friends and I piled into the two-seats of my 5-speed Pontiac Fiero and drove around town. Needless to say, we were crammed in there pretty tight. As the driver, I barely had enough space to shift gears or even turn the wheel to navigate.


At times that’s how it seems in certain parts in our lives: we feel cramped, confined and restricted, in desperate need of some elbow room. Thankfully, during our confinement we can have confidence knowing that God is tuned in to what we’re going through and will do something about it if we ask.


There’s a great example of that in Exodus 3:7,8: “You can be sure I have seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard their cries for deliverance from their harsh slave drivers. Yes, I am aware of their suffering. So I have come to rescue them from the Egyptians and lead them out of Egypt into their own good and spacious land.”


God sees us, hears us and knows how much we can handle. He sees when we have developed from being bitter into being better through dealing with that situation. Then, in the nick of time, He snatches us out and places us where we have more than enough room to move!


“HELP” is a prayer that is always answered.
