Psalm 138:2 (NLT) I bow before your holy Temple as I worship. I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness; for your promises are backed by all the honor of your name.3 As soon as I pray, you answer me; you encourage me by giving me strength.
Have you noticed about five seconds outside the womb I think we all discover that this life isn’t easy? And it seems that the older we get the tougher life becomes. Some people have problems or are attracted to difficulties like fleas to a dog. Others make it through life with relatively little difficulty. Where are you in your life?
But most of us will likely face some tough times in life, and it’s not important how your challenges stack up to the challenges of others. Sometimes you might wonder if you are going to be able to make it through, and you will if you hold onto God. The Lord has promised to see you through (Hebrews 13:5). I just wanted to remind someone reading today; God has made some promises concerning you and your life!
Are you weighed down? Do you feel overcome with grief or alone in your struggle? You can choose to take steps to walk through your challenges and come through them a stronger person. I very sincere in this message today, the reason for this season is because God promised and came to rescue us!
Point to ponder- Remember, believing in God and in Jesus Christ doesn’t mean you won’t have problems. But it does mean you have resources, people, and God’s Spirit that will see you through your problems. What could be better? God’s promises in your time of pain, it doesn’t get any better than this family of God!
