Life will have difficulties, but Jesus, who loves us more than life, (“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends, John 15:13.”), is greater than any difficulty anyone might experience.
John 14:27 New International Version (NIV)
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Whatever you are going through today, do not allow your circumstance to overwhelm you. Jesus knows your problem, and in due time He will lift you out of your mire clay. Take a tip from Job. When he was going through difficult life-changing circumstances, he never stops praying.
Isaiah 43:2: When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you go through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not get scorched, and the flames will not set you ablaze.
“You, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, and You are the potter. We are all the work of your hand,” (Isaiah 64:8).
When life gets messy, and you do not know what to do or where to turn, do not panic Look to Jesus instead. He is bigger than the mess. In John 14:6 He said:
“I am the way the truth and the life…”
“The LORD, your God, is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.” –Zephaniah 3:17
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” –Isaiah 40:28-31
When life throws a curve ball in our direction, we instinctively call on God for help. But sometimes our most difficult moments can become doorways to a deeper relationship with Him.
Psalm 86: 6-7, “Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; And attend to the voice of my supplications. In the day of my distress, I will call upon You, because you will answer me.”
