To remain strong during difficult times requires that we stand in faith.  There is nothing sadder than to see believers react defeated at a hill of trouble when Christ has given us the power to move mountains. The storms that blow through your life may be strong, but the Master of the wind is still Christ and he alone determines the outcome of your situation.  There is no doctor’s report, no financial problem, no heartache and absolutely no other trial that can hinder the perfect plan that God has for you life.  Jesus came to this earth to die for each of us so that we can live life to the fullest despite our problems.  The hardships of this world cannot defeat us but will always be used for our good if we keep our eyes on Jesus.  His power has no limit; therefore, your impossible situation cannot stand against Christ who is the Author and Finisher of our lives.

 

 In 2 Corinthian 4:16 we read, “Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.”  Those struggles that seem to weaken us can actually make us stronger as we trust in our Lord who has said that He would never leave us.  It was the love of Christ who willingly took our sins upon himself and bought for us an everlasting inheritance in heaven with him.   

When you can understand that the painful situations you must endure are only allowed to bring you closer to the image of Christ, you can have the peace that surpasses understanding.  Even though it may not make sense to you, God has an eternal reason for all that he allows to touch your life.  And God, who knew your afflictions before he even formed the earth, has prepared a way for you to be taken through them.

 

The enemy of our soul will always look for ways to discourage true believers.  Satan knows that he cannot stop God’s perfect plan for you so he must work to convince you that your problems are bigger than your God.  He wants you to forget that Jesus can still heal our diseases; that he can strengthen us against addictions; that he can restore broken homes and that he can overcome all of our weaknesses.  Jesus is the only one who can make us whole and give us a future with a promise. The devil cannot take from us what Christ has died to give us.  

 

The enemy wants to keep us blinded to the truth, but the light of God’s word will be a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.  Jesus is the light of this world and all those who turn to him can never be held in darkness and bondage by any stronghold. Your situation is never hopeless because we have a Savior who is the God of all hope.  There is nothing that he cannot and will not do for those who put their trust in him. 

 

Whatever troubling situation you may be going through right now, may you know that peace and victory can be yours if you will just call upon the name of Jesus. He is with you right now. You are never without hope.

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ. It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
