Job 14:1 (KJV) “Man who is born of woman Is of few days and full of trouble.
Approximately a few 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 it becomes. Some people have problems or are attracted to difficulties. Others of us make it through life with relatively little difficulty.
But most likely, we all face some tough times in life, and it’s not important how your challenges stack up to the challenges of others.
How will you get through the tough times that life throws at you?
Sometimes you might wonder if you are going to be able to make it through, and you will if you hold onto God.
We go through things in life to help build our character and to make us better people all around. God has a plan for our going through.
And even though it seems that life is weighing you down, there is a reason for everything you go through. And our God has promised to see us through.
“In order to get through you have to go through”
You are not alone
Do you feel overcome with grief or alone in your struggle? Remember, believing in God and in Jesus Christ doesn’t mean you won’t have problems.
God never said that life would be easy, nor did he say we would never face adversity. What he did say is that he would always be with us!
That means you have resources, people, and God’s Spirit who will see you through your problems. We are on to something with God!
Point to ponder
Because God is the greatest power, we will not be defeated!
