My friend, I know not what your trouble may be

(James Smith, "The Pastor's Evening Visit")

"If I were you — I would seek unto God! I would lay my cause before Him!" Job 5:8

This is sound advice. It is much better than . . .
  seeking unto men, or
  poring over troubles, or
  indulging a gloomy imagination, or
  giving way to fears.

My friend, I know not what your trouble may be — but "If I were you — I would seek unto God!"

If I was in perplexity — I would seek unto God for wisdom.

If I was in sorrow — I would seek unto God for comfort.

If I was in weakness — I would seek unto God for strength.

If I was under guilt — I would seek unto God for pardon.

If I was in a severe conflict — I would seek unto God for victory.

If I was in doubt and fear — I would seek unto God for confidence and a sense of His favor.

If I was harassed by Satan — I would seek unto almighty God for protection.

If I was afraid of falling — I would seek unto God to uphold me with His omnipotent arm.

If I was alarmed at death — I would seek for His presence to comfort me.

Whatever you need — seek it from God!

Whatever you fear — carry it to God!

Whatever troubles you — lay it before God!

You cannot seek unto Him in vain, or without profit!

"If I were you — I would seek unto God! I would lay my cause before Him!"
