When Trouble Comes

This evening, a guest musing from Pastor Emeritus, Bill Badal from my church (www.fbcsycamore.com).

When trouble comes, our first reaction is to help others. That’s very good, but sometimes we don’t know what to do. We try to do things in our own strength, but here’s what we need to do.

So do not fear for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10).

My grandmother taught me great lessons. Take it to Jesus. I would watch her in her room looking up to the ceiling and ask the Lord, “What can I do with this?” She had full confidence that He was listening to her. When she got done, nobody could tell her anything else.

Isaiah 41:10 is a great verse: “So do not fear for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

  • I am with you
  • I am your God
  • I will strengthen you and help you;
  • I will uphold you with my RIGHT HAND
  • 4 times, I will
  • RIGHTEOUS HAND. He is righteous and merciful and gracious, and he loves us on to all of that
  • RIGHT HAND – who is seated on his right hand of God? Jesus, who said, “I will not leave you nor forsake you.”

My grandmother knew the secret of survival, and she knew how she was able to help us all by giving us hope.

Michele and I, and our church, love you all. We have been calling with messages to give you hope. So look up. He is listening to you. Read his word for answers.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
