Are you a depressed and timid person? If you are saved by grace it will ultimately drive you closer to God. The greater your dangers, the more frequent and fervent your approaches to Him will be. You feel the need for everlasting arms underneath you to bear these smaller troubles, which are nothing for other people. How much more do you feel this need in deeper troubles that try the stronger Christian to the utmost of their strength and patience.

What if the Lord makes an advantage of your weakness - to display His power in supporting you? 

"And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.....for when I am weak then I am strong." 

2 Corinthians 12:9-20......So then do not let this discourage you....It might drive you nearer to God and provide a fit opportunity for the display of His grace in your time of need."

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
