Have you ever been thrown into a situation where you don’t think there’s a way out? Maybe you feel like God presented you with an opportunity, but you don’t even know what to do with it.

Throughout the years, God will fill your life with both good and bad situations and experiences. You may have thoughts of confusion, doubt, and maybe even fear, but God will never bring you to something that he won’t carry you through.

There are several passages in the Bible where it talks about how God equips us with the things we need. He doesn’t abandon us to figure it out on our own while we feel scared, anxious, and isolated. He wants us to know that despite our worry and doubt, he provides every single time. Look at what the Bible has to say about it!

Matthew 6:31-34 says, “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

When have you felt most deserted by God? Was it through a terrible break up in high school? Or maybe when you didn’t get into your dream college you’ve been planning on attending for years?

We’re going to come to several roadblocks and setbacks all throughout our lives. Or at least that’s what we think they are. God doesn’t lead us into failure, for he always has a purpose in where and what he guides us into.

If God takes you through an awful break up, think of it as a new opportunity. Maybe God knows you need some time to yourself to figure out who you are before you give part of yourself to someone else. He will provide you with guidance and clarity during these times, all you have to do is be willing to listen!

Philippians 4:19 says, “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”  

If we truly believe the word of God, then we should never doubt the promises within it. This verse is not just a statement, but a promise. God will meet all your needs, not just in the good times of your life. God will never take us into a situation that he expects us to handle on our own.

Isn’t that cool to think about? Our heavenly father never abandons us or leaves us to deal with things alone. Where God guides, he always provides. Rest in this promise and remember to put your trust in Christ, today and every day.
