The whole point of this is that God understands exactly what we are going through. In fact, He understands it better than we do ourselves. Therefore, He knows exactly what we need to encourage us and lift us up.
Our God has promised to always be there for us. The writer of the letter to the Hebrews reminded his readers, “...for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,” so that we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What shall man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:5-6). This should also be, not just a reminder, but an encouragement to us as well today. This is God’s promise to His people. He never said there will not be tough times, He never said we would not have pain in our lives as Christians. What our God did do is promise to be with us regardless of what we face in this life. He said He will not leave us or forsake us! Brethren, our God keeps His word! Our part in all this is to simply follow the instructions of Peter where he said, “Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:6-7). With the Lord’s help we can and will overcome all this world can throw at us.
Until next week, I love you all,
