• When difficulties arise, we like to think there are certain steps we can take, attitudes we can adopt, or positive confessions we can make to alleviate our anguish and be happy again. Sometimes there are. However, anyone who has truly suffered will know that when it comes to the real thing, there is no help to ease the pain, at least no human help. Simply put, when we reach the “pits,” we aren’t going to be able to think our way out; nor hope, sing, pray, confess, nor even love our way out. Only the Lord Himself can do that, and when he does, as Exodus 6:6 puts it, “Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, who brought you out from under the yoke.” ~N.H. Hoekes
