Are you at a point in your life that you feel isolated and alone? Do you feel like no one understands…or cares? Do you sense yourself becoming somewhat resentful or bitter because your emotions are raging out of control? All of us have been there. Whether you are going through the fire right now…or have been through it in the past…it is a very difficult place to be. Recognize that you are normal. You are not alone. Your battle can and will be overcome…if you allow God to step in and help. So often when we need God the most…we tend to shut God out. It is when you don’t feel like praying…that you should pray more. It is when you don’t feel like accepting help…that you need help the most. It is when you feel like giving up…that you should give it all up to God. We cannot possibly press through the trials alone. The devil will use these difficult times to try to bring you down more…and attempt to turn your attention away from the power of God. Keep in mind that this world has two spiritual realms…darkness or light. The light always, always overpowers the darkness. Jesus is the light. God gave us His only son Jesus…to be our helper and our deliverer through each struggle. Allow Jesus to be your light…your source. God’s amazing love, grace and mercy…can and will carry you through. God’s power is in your hands…if you simply ask Him to show you the way. Don’t expect instant results…give God time to turn things around. Trusting in Him will give you power and peace to endure the challenge…and be an over comer.
When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” JOHN 8:12
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7
God is with us.
