Matthew 14:26 (NKJV) And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear.
We live in a world that is, at times, a frightening place. We live in a world that is, at times, a discouraging place. We live in a world where life-changing losses can be so painful and so profound that it seems we will never recover. But, with God’s help, and with the help of encouraging family members and friends, we can recover. Today’s message is for someone who may feel all hope is gone!
During the darker days of life, we are wise to remember the words of Jesus, who reassured His disciples, saying, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid” (Matthew 14:27 NIV). Then, with God’s comfort and His love in our hearts, we can share encouragement to others. The Lord has given me this platform of Word Cup to let you know “We can recover”!
Point to ponder- By helping others face their fears, we can, in turn, tackle our own problems with courage, determination, and faith. The Lord knows what He is doing connecting us to each other is vital to our sustainability in this life and we do recover! Please notice when you take time and effort to help others, you in turn help yourself! Have a great Wednesday!
