The way this Christian Life is set-up; everyday won’t be fresh smelling roses! You will have to deal with and experience some hardship but if you don’t grow weary and keep the Faith; all will be well!
Do you trust and believe that?
Many people will say that they do but at the first sign of trouble they will panic and that’s where fear sets in!
Aren’t you a child of the Most High? Didn’t you receive his Son as your Lord and Savior? Remember the One that died on the cross for us and forgives all our sins?
When the seasons change in our lives that shouldn’t cause fear in us; it should be a time of reflection on all the storms He has brought us through! All the destruction that was going on around us and not one hair on our head was touched! That should open your eyes to how you are protected and set apart! Shouldn’t it?
Job lived through the most cruelest ordeals but he wasn’t harmed! He may have lost a lot but his Life was spared and in the end; he was blessed beyond measure!
His friends came in pointing fingers and speaking of things that they didn’t know of and couldn’t understand trying to sway Job to their way of thinking!
How many times have people tried to speak into your life and had no clue what you were dealing with? What you were actually experiencing?
Many times when people don’t have firsthand knowledge they can make things worse but when they have been where you’re at, lived through the very ordeal that you are; then they can fully relate! And not just make speculations or accusations, or assumptions!
Luke 21:25-28 and Jeremiah 5:1 (NIV)
What storm(s) are you going through right now?
What has kicked up in your life and won’t stop attacking you?
What can’t you break-free from that is seeking to devour you?
Have you called out for help? Have you sent an S.O.S?
Take the time to reflect and answer the questions that you’ve been wrestling with and read these scriptures….While it may seem hard and difficult at the very moment; just remember help is on the way…
“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near”. Luke 21:25-28 (NIV)
“Go up and down the streets of Jerusalem, look around and consider, search through her squares. If you can find but one person who deals honestly and seeks the truth, I will forgive this city”. Jeremiah 5:1 (NIV)
