When we feel like we have no strength to continue in our life, that is when we must surrender our weakness to Christ and take on his strength.
Too often we let our circumstances rob us of our joy. It is as though we can only trust that God is with us when things are going good in our life. In Isaiah 43:2, God tells us, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk throught he fire you shall not be burned and the flame shall not consume you.” I can assure you that pretty much covers the pain of everything you can face on this earth. God is telling those who believe on Him that He is just as powerful in the darkness as He is in the light.
Nothing can defeat us when our hope is in Christ. He can always bring us out of the storm.
We are living in a world that is in a great upheaval. Right has been called wrong and evil is replacing good.
To stand for truth means persecution and consequence. Our future may seem like a blur when we are uncertain how to take the next step. Take a leap of faith. Now is the time to let the world know who we belong to. Believing in your heart that God is enough to help us. Anyone can claim to trust God when things are going well. But it is in the time of battle that the worth of our faith is being proved genuine.
If we belong to Christ, all that we endure is part of the unspoken plan that has been designed for our victory. We have reason for hope because Christ lives to intercede for us every second of the day. God will not fail to take us through the troubled seasons of our life. Every one of our tears is precious to him. There is not a step we take or a thought in our mind that is not seen and guided by Christ. He is the light on our path to glory.
Now as Christians we should take God’s armor and wear it daily. The devil of this world cannot overcome God’s authority. Only Christ can complete the number of our days and fulfill our destiny.
If He leads us to a mountain or to a raging sea, He has a purpose and He knows how to get us to trust Him alone. He is our stronghold and a very real help in need.
He won’t let us down. Let Him finish His work in us. Remember He is getting us ready for His coming. We should always look forward on that day that God will smile at us and tell us “Well done, My Child”. ♡
