When at Your Wits’ End

When pressures or problems or pain envelop our lives, we tend to trust God…plus our doctor or our lawyer or our counselor or our banker or our leaders or our own effort or our  (fill in the blank). Yet God seems to demonstrate His power and glory to those who trust in Him alone. Which is why He often allows us to reach the end of our human resources or run the limit of conventional wisdom before He steps in and does the impossible. The miraculous. So when you are at your wits’ end…

Trust God

  • Read Psalm How many desperate situations are described? How was each one resolved? What was the final outcome of each? What were the people exhorted to do at the conclusion each time?
  • How do the following verses encourage you to trust God? Write out descriptive phrases from: 2 Samuel 7:28; Psalm 56:3-4; Psalm 20:7; Psalm 18:1-19; Psalm 31:14-16; Isaiah 26:3-4; Deuteronomy 4:7; Psalm 62:5-8; Isaiah 59:1.

Trust God Alone

  • What blessings are reserved for those who trust in God alone? 1 Chronicles 5:20; Psalm 28:6-7; Isaiah 25:8-9; Romans 15:13.
  • How do the following examples encourage you to trust God completely? Hebrews 11:11-12, 11:17-19; Exodus 14:10-22; 1 Samuel 17:1-11, 32-50; Daniel 6:1-23.
  • What is the greatest example of complete trust in God? Luke 23:46. What was the result? Ephesians 1:19-23.
  • Can you remember a time when you cried out in desperation to God, and He answered? Write out a brief description.
  • When you are desperate, do you think you need to help God out? What miracle could you be missing because you are not trusting Him alone?

When you are at your wits’ end, cry out to God…then trust Him to hear and answer!
