We live in a hectic and uncertain world. So much is going on that some of us have lost hope, leaving us to question God. Even in the most troubled times you can be sure of this. God loves you. Jesus. Himself , when speaking about the people who belong to Him, put it this way:
John 10:10 My purpose is to give life in all its fullness.”
So whatever you face, God will make a way to take you through it!
God’s word stands true and He fulfills every promise despite the problems we face. This world is not our final destination but only a place or preparation for what is to come. In this life, we are going to endure hardships of every kind until Jesus returns to make all things new. No matter how fierce the battle, believers cannot be defeated by the enemy. He is your stronghold in time of need. Believe in prayer and know He hears.
I will be the first to admit my faith has been tested and stretched to the limit as I have faced battles in my life. There are times when I felt overwhelmed. No matter how weary I may be, God has given me the grace to endure. All the trials that I have faced in my life only taught me that God has been my help through every single one of them. He sees my tears and knows my pain.
Psalm 34:18 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
Someone that’s reading this is going through troubled times, is experiencing a broken spirit, dealing with death of loved ones, or you name; it its happening. However, one thing you can always rely on is Prayer. I want to make it clear that without any doubt, God has authority over all that we face. He can and will do mighty things to help His people.
When you do all that you can and it seems like you are being hard pressed on every side, remember that in Christ, you cannot be crushed. He will take your broken heart and your fallen dreams and use them to build you up for His purpose. It might seem your pain and tears will never end , but that’s not true.
Psalm 69:1-3 Save me, O God! For the waters have come up to my neck, I sink in the deep mire, where there is no foothold; I have come into deep waters and the flood sweeps over me. I am weary with my crying out; my throat is parched. My eyes grow dim with waiting for my God.
Yet David kept trusting his God when all hope seemed lost.
Never think your problems and struggles dictate your future. It is planned out by Christ Jesus who will not fail to help those who trust in Him. Even though the enemy will have you thinking that God has failed you remember:
Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.
All your trials and struggles were known to God even before you were born. He can use all things and cause them to be used for good and the purpose he has for your life. Nothing is impossible for Him. If you can keep trusting Him despite your struggle, you will not be conquered. You will have the victory in everything even through your pain. The battle will get tough at times but it is not your own strength that will get you through.
Hebrew 4:16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
I pray for each of you reading this, that you know God is always with you, and as I pray for you I ask that each of you also pray that God continues to keep me humble and give me the messages to write. May God bless you all.
