““I have told you these things so that you can have peace in me. In this world you will have troubles. But be brave! I have defeated the world!””
John 16:33 ERV
Man, it seems like when things are going bad, it lasts forever. It appears that nothing can go your way and everything you touch crumbles. I sit here and think, what did I do? Where did I make a bad choice that led me to this place? I’m looking at things and knowing in my spirit that all my bills are about the same, my money is about the same but it’s not enough to get the job done. I look at people who I feel make less or do less and they are making it, they are happy and well put together. Life seems to be going fine for everyone else yet I am drowning in debt, drowning in my spirit. What is going on?
Have you ever felt that way? Have you ever felt like you were dealt a bad hand, or believed that life has been too hard on you? Have you ever felt like you keep picking the wrong door? Like life’s a game and you are losing?
Stop 🛑 right now and bow your head. Yup it’s easy, bow your head, breathe in slow and let it out slow. You got it, do that a few more times. Ok now that you have some air in your lungs and oxygen to your brain I’ll tell you a secret. EVERYBODY has trials and tribulations.
What seems small to you could be a mountain for someone else. What seems possible for you is impossible for someone else. What you are going through others would love the opportunity to change problems with you. It’s a natural fact that our problems always seem bigger than us. But I have good news.
Nothing is impossible with GOD!
I’m not kidding. Why do you think so many people believe in Jesus? It’s not because we are brainwashed or lazy, it’s because we have learned to trust him. You know how we learned? We trusted him and he proved what he said. He did what he said he would do. We trusted his word and the word became real in our lives.
“But those who trust in the Lord will become strong again. They will be like eagles that grow new feathers. They will run and not get weak. They will walk and not get tired.”
Isaiah 40:31 ERV
“God says, “Stop fighting and know that I am God! I am the one who defeats the nations; I am the one who controls the world.””
Psalms 46:10 ERV
““Come to me all of you who are tired from the heavy burden you have been forced to carry. I will give you rest.”
Matthew 11:28 ERV
“Don’t worry—I am with you. Don’t be afraid—I am your God. I will make you strong and help you. I will support you with my right hand that brings victory.”
Isaiah 41:10 ERV
Now, I say this, trouble comes but it won’t last always. Trust the process, there are no accidents in the kingdom, all things work together for your good. Take a look back over your life and tell me how you made it over! Yup, he helped you then, he has you know.
