  • Getting Stuck In Crappy Situations

    This devotion, Getting Stuck In A Crappy Situation was inspired by the Soul H2O Radio & Podcast, Episode 70 Traveling Through.  Hope you get refreshed from both Soul H2O media offerings. ☺ Make sure to look to the bottom when you’re done reading the devo to see my exciting news and find something for you!

    Let’s dive in, to today’s Soul H2O Devotion, so you can get refreshed!

    Soul H2O Devotion

    Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you, are with me;
    Psalm 23:4

    Getting Stuck in a Crappy SituationGetting Stuck in Crappy Situations

    I watched a funny video the other day about people getting stuck in strange places. A hilarious one showed this lady whose bracelet had fallen off and into the toilet. Trying to recover the bracelet, her watch got stuck and then her arm.

    She was an EMT and knew there was help out there but the embarrassment of making that 911 call and her co-workers showing up kept her stuck in the bathroom for a lot longer than she needed. Finally, she conceded and made the call for help. Not knowing how many people would see her story in a viral video, but if she never made the call, who knows how long she would have stayed stuck in a crappy situation?

    No… I’m not like that!

    Are you ever like this lady? Your stubborn pride keeps you stuck because you’re unwilling to admit that you need help? Ignoring the reality and trying to trudge through but instead of traveling through your desert circumstance, you’re doing nothing more than kicking up sand and getting stuck… deeper and deeper when God is offering you a hand to help.  

    psalm 23Today’s verse is taken from one of the most popular Bible passages and David wrote it as his last bit of wisdom to pass down to his son. David knew what it was like to be trapped in crappy circumstances and how to get through them, reaching God’s purpose for his life. He wanted his son to know how to do the same and left the blueprint for you to follow!

    Even though I walk through the darkest valley,

    I will fear no evil, for you, are with me;

    Psalm 23:4

    God longs to be with you and help you get through the darkest of valleys you face, so you never get stuck in the sand. He will provide a way out… you just can’t be so stubborn; ask for help and then… walk through!

    Prayer

    Father… Thank you for always being with me, in the good times and the baddest of bad. Help me push aside my pride and reach out to the help around me, so I don’t get stuck. Strengthen me to be able to keep traveling through towards your great plans you have for my life. In Jesus Name…Amen

    Let’s dive in, to today’s Soul H2O Devotion, so you can get refreshed!

    Soul H2O Devotion

    Midian was subdued before the Israelites and did not raise its head again. During Gideon’s lifetime, the land had peace forty years.
    Judges 8:28 NIV

    300 and Being Outnumbered in Battle

    300 and Being Outnumbered in Battle

    Guys love the movie 300 but as a chick, I just don’t really get it. The Spartans, even with a very buff and beautiful Gerard Butler lose the battle. Now, I know that historically the 300 Spartan soldiers were crazy outnumbered by the Persian empire army and their valiant sacrifice did inspire the Greeks to reconvene and finally overtake their oppressors but by the end of the movie, they hadn’t won.

    I really don’t like movies where the underdog or oppressed one doesn’t win in the end and would have much preferred if the movie 300 was about another completely inspirational battle fought and won by just 300 warriors.

    A Better Story

    That story is recorded in Judges 6-8. The nation of Israel had again fallen into sin, which during that time was worshipping other gods of the people around them which involved some very wrong ritualistic practices. As a result, God backed off. I mean why would he keep protecting them when they had made it clear that they weren’t following Him anymore? Like a rebellious child, they were going to have to learn a lesson the hard way. Israel became oppressed by the Midianites and were so afraid that they were mostly hiding in caves.

    The Miraculous Part

    Finally, people begin to come to their senses and call on God. In response, God calls Gideon to stand up and fight to protect his people from their oppressors and even though they were outnumbered by an army of nations about 450 times bigger than their measly 300 soldiers, God did the miraculous and they experienced peace that lasted 40 years! Now that movie, would end in triumph!

    My 300 Battles

    Throughout the past six and a half years of sending out Soul H2O Devotions, before I got to my 300th Soul H2O Devotion, I’ve experienced times of being outnumbered and sometimes outsmarted by the enemy. The battle has gotten so difficult I felt like I was going to end up annihilated like the Spartans yet each time, as I went to God and His word, I was refreshed and strengthened to continue this fight for the abundant life.

    Outnumbered

    If you feel like you’re living a little outnumbered right now and that the enemy of your soul is sure to take you down, remember this story of Gideon and the 300 men who battled and won. Make sure to invite God in to be on your side, and the peace He’ll bring will be your victory!   

    Prayer

    Father… I’m so thankful that you don’t leave me outnumbered. You and me are all that’s needed to stand strong in the face of any difficult circumstance. I ask for the grace needed to live in the midst of chaos yet bask in Your presence of peace because You sent Your son to be my Prince of Peace! So today, I will soak in this truth. In Jesus Name…Amen
