Sometimes stuff hits the fan, and life is no longer the perfect picture we’d all hope it to be. And although our faith in Christ does bring us a new-found purpose and destiny, this is not to say that things aren’t ever going to be tough. No matter what you are going through, God is still good, all-powerful, all-knowing, and all comforting.
Comfort through scripture.
“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” –Matthew 11:28
“He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.” –2 Corinthians 1:4
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand” –Isaiah 41:10
Going through a tough time?
– Lose a loved one?
– Lose your job?
– Struggling with infertility?
– Struggling with finances?
– Going through a divorce?
– Having relationship issues?
– Is your child rebelling?
God is always working.
God is good, even when our circumstances are bad. Although life experiences can sometimes bring us down, we must remember that God is always waiting with a helping hand to keep us standing tall. We must submerge ourselves into the promises of God, even when it looks like there is no way of getting out alive.
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” –Romans 8:28
Every failure, mishap, and wrong-doing is an opportunity to learn and grow in faith. God is always good, and willing to work all things for the Good of those in Christ.
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” –Romans 8:37-39
