In A Serious Bind

Are you in a terrible bind with your finances or with anything else? The question shouldn’t be how to get out of it but, is the Lord with you? As long as Jesus Christ is in your life, and you are walking according to His will, you are in a better place than someone who has everything going well for him but without God in his life. It is much safer to be in a bind knowing that God is with you than not being in one and not having God by your side.

It is better to go through hell with Jesus by your side than to be in heaven without Him there.


The book of Psalms gives the same idea. Whatever great things you do with your life here on earth and accomplish—without the Lord, it is all worthless.

Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain; unless the LORD protects the city, its watchmen stand guard in vain.

Psalm 127:1 BSB

God told Joshua to go to war against the Canaanites and take their lands because they defiled it through all their evil deeds. Joshua was going to put his life on the line with the rest of the Israelites. But, God told him not to worry because He was going to go with him into battle. Even if you would find yourself in a war, as long as you have God with you, you are in a better situation than a guy at home without God in his life.

9 Have I not commanded you to be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9 BSB

You see, whatever happens to you in this life, you have nothing to worry about because the Lord is with you. If you die, you will be with Him in heaven, and if you continue to live, He will sustain you. For those without God in their life, the moment they go through something difficult, they won’t be able to get out of it or endure it. Many even kill themselves to get out of it. But a believer has hope, and that hope is Jesus Christ.

  1. Thanks for your comment, beaniecaptain. Seeing it in this perspective makes it sink much deeper into how wonderful the Lord is to those who love Him. The Lord spoke to me this morning and reminded me of it, so I had to share it.

  2. That’s awesome, SpaniardVIII. Seeing things in perspective like these definitely is quite helpful in taking it in more and knowing how amazing God is to us believers, it’s really cool.
