We all know that it is difficult to understand as believers when you are overwhelmed, but your attitude in times of trouble is an indicator of where your faith lies. When you face a trial in your life, it is a struggle to believe that God will be there to help you through it. You feel alone. Yet, the more serious your problem, the more grace He extends to you. You are never left to fight a battle on your own. We can all trust God when we have some control in the situation. But when the problem is impossible for us or anyone else to help, that is when our faith is put to the test. Have a wonderful day as you put your faith and trust in God to take you through your difficult time. Love you all.
Jesus told us in John 16:33, ” In this world you will have trials and tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
It doesn’t matter what we face as believers for all things are under the sovereign authority of Christ. It is His will that prevails in the outcome of every problem we face. If you will try to understand that truth, it will bring you peace when all hope seems gone. Your struggle is actually the transforming power that reveals God’s strength. It is always His purpose to bring you through your heartache and reveal more of Himself to you. Your battles are won long before they start because Christ paid the price for your victory. That may seem difficult to comprehend when your heart is breaking –but that is the truth.
I pray that you also know that every tear you shed is before God and subject to His ultimate authority. Your heart cannot be broken beyond our Creator’s hand to heal. It just can’t happen. There is no situation you face that can ever empty out the future God planned for you. Although you may not feel it now, your life is filled to overflow with God’s unending power and purpose. His angels are surrounding those who belong to him. There is nothing that has been left to chance.
You can enjoy quiet peace in spite of your pain when you stop trying to control the way God deals with your situation and let Him work it out his way. You can take rest knowing that whatever God allows in your life, He has planned it long before you were born to use it for your good. His ways will always be higher than ours, but His ways are the only path to victory. Surrender your pain to Christ who will heal you and give you back abundant hope from the ashes of your broken dreams. May you know that your tears are not in vain. You still have hope regardless of what you are facing. This world is perishing and yet those who belong to Christ shall never be destroyed. Let Him work out your problem and restore your peace. Don’t settle for the lies of the enemy. You were meant for more!
