Do you ever feel like life is getting harder to face? Are you pressing through days where you face difficulty after difficulty? Does it seem like there are more obstacles to overcome than ever before? This is not a new subject. Often times our human nature tends to question God at these times. We wonder why things are happening to us. It’s hard to understand what we have ‘done’ that may be causing these things to happen. Are we being punished? NO. Nowhere in Scripture does it teach that trials in life are an indication that God is displeased with us. Instead, Scripture indicates that God recognizes our faith and has confidence in our commitment to Him. Wrapping our minds around how human nature works…is impossible. We must use the wisdom we gain from Scripture to see and evaluate life. This means asking for God’s wisdom to cope with the trials of life, and allowing our hearts to be led by the Holy Spirit. Prayer is essential. Jesus will guide you and help you…when you honestly place your trust in Him. Commit your life to increasing your faith. You can be assured the struggles will become strength, and trials will become testimony.
Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall. PSALM 55:22
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. JAMES 1:2-6
God is with us.
