Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”
We mostly find ourselves in situations where sometimes we don’t believe in the existence of God. We feel betrayed, rejected and sometimes the feeling of giving up creeps up on us. We tend to blame ourselves for everything that is happening and even when we are able to bring ourselves to pray, it feels like the Lord is going to ignore us just as He is making us go through all these troubles.
In such situations, we must stay strong and believe that we have a God. The Lord said that we will go through trials and temptations but we should not lose faith for God will always be there for us no matter what. God made a promise and He will never forsake us. In tempting and challenging times, we tend to forget everything we have learnt throughout our walk with Christ. Let us never forget that our God is ever faithful and He will never let us down. No matter how hard the struggle is, even when we are at the point of giving up the Lord will rescue us. God has done it before and there is no way He will not do it again just for us. When we feel like given up, let us not do so. Let us remember that we worship a God who can move mountains, a God who can walk on water, a God who can bring the dead back to life. The devil or no one else has power over our lives except the God we worship. All we have to do is believe and He will make a way for us. Just remember that the Lord loves you and He will always be there for you.
Reflection: Are you going through challenges? Don’t give up, God who has power over all things.
