Throne Trip Tuesdays - Don't Suffer Alone


We sometimes discover that a friend had a need that he or she didn't make known; went through a time of trouble without asking for help. And we say, "Why didn't you say something? Why didn't you call me? You know I would have been there." And the answer often is, "I didn't want to bother you. This was my problem and I needed to solve it myself."

Such a scenario is going to play out during the coming Tribulation on earth. There will be multitudes of people who find themselves in a fix: They will have failed to believe on Jesus Christ before the Rapture, and they find themselves enduring the pain of tribulation on earth. But hopefully they will not fail to call out to God for salvation. We know that many will call upon Him, based on the multitudes "of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues" the apostle John saw in heaven--those who had "come out of the great tribulation" (Revelation 7:9, 14). Even if they lose their life via persecution on earth, their eternal life is secure. God always delivers those He saves.

Don't endure alone. Call out to God, or to godly friends, in your hour of need, and experience God's comfort. Calvary is God's great proof that suffering in the will of God always leads to glory. Warren Wiersbe

Peace and Joy,

It definitely is so important that we are not to venture in this life alone. We need each other. Any time that we think we need to get things figured out ourselves we miss out on the power of love manifested in the body of Christ that helps to change people's lives. Truly, it is actually pride that makes people separate themselves and try to conquer their situations alone. And actions of pride never bring about the result that is intended. We need each other. We were not meant to be islands but a unified ocean body. Great post Susan!

Susan,

What a great post! It is hard to remember that people will be saved during the tribulation period but how wonderful would it be if we had shared the word of God with them before hand.

Let us never be too busy so people won't call on us, but call us to help them out because they know we care and can help. Better than that, we can show them a God who is faithful to always be there and nothing is too busy for Him!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Wonderful post and a great reminder but so hard to ask for help from friends or God himself. One of those things I've struggled with for a long time.
