The God Who Strengthens

TEXT: ‘Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the Lord.’ Psalm 31:24

Sometimes we may not always understand why we have to pass through difficulties in life, especially as Christians, but someday we will. Trusting in God is crucial during the most difficult times, trusting in God is choosing not to see our problems focus on the Lord’s promise. Hard times often mould and make us a better person.

So when we do not always get what we want, let us remember that God has our best interest at heart, and loves us deeply. Let us cultivate the habit of giving thanks to God: make a list of all the things for which we have to appreciate God and we will see that the latter far outweighs our reasons for feeling sad.

Total trust in God is the only way for a Christian in difficult times. He is the only cure for our hurts and pains. Therefore, turn all of your burdens over to Him and refrain from trying to help God in your impatience, or despair, causing you to seek help elsewhere. Help from the Lord is eternal anything else will only be temporal.

May the Lord help us as we depend on Him for all our needs.

LEARN and APPLY: There is great gain in trusting and waiting upon the Lord. Those who wait upon the Lord will never be ashamed or disgraced.

Pray: I speak victory into all situations. My life will not be lost in this battle and may my expectations not be cut short in Jesus’ name. Amen
