But when I considered how to understand this, it was too great an effort for me and too painful. Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then I understood [for I considered] their end.
(Psalms 73:16-17 AMP)

There are things which are difficult to comprehend and understand using your natural intellect. The Psalmist was in that place where thinking on these things was a painful effort. It could be a situation you encountered, a treatment you were given by those you trusted or even a loss you experienced! There is only one way to deal with these challenges. Venture into the sanctuary of The Lord!

In the sanctuary, in the very presence of God, you receive a level of supernatural understanding and comprehension of things. Remember God is all-knowing and he knows things in the past, present and in the future. As you rely on Him, difficult questions in this world receive their answers.

Don’t delay, go into his sanctuary now. Save yourself the pain of trying to think on the subject over and over again. It will only cause you untold grief. Go into the sanctuary and you will receive all the answers and comfort you require.

I pray for you today that as you enter God’s presence may difficult questions receive answers in Jesus’ name.

Declare this,
I carry all burdens into the sanctuary of God. I receive supernatural ability to handle all difficult issues.

  1. This message is so powerful and relevant to our daily bases. We often come across situations that cause us grief and it’s such an honour and a blessing to know that there is a way out. I wish this message can reach every young person out there who turn to search for comfort in wrong places. Thanks a lot Apostle
