Too much to Bear
Have you ever had a moment in your life where you felt all the trials of being a Christian was too much to bear? I believe that as Christians we face much more hardship because of our moral standing and belief in what is right because we love the Lord.
You go about your business doing your best to accomplish your purpose and at every corner is one difficulty or the other. It even gets worse – I know that there are some days everything goes wrong (all at the same time), as if your world is crumbling all around you. You look heavenward as if to say “God you are not suppose to let these things happen to me, I’m serving you.” I confess to you today I have had these moments.
But, in these moments, I truly thank God that He knows hearts and He knows our framework (Psalms 103: 13-14). In my moments of doubting, He has always shown me His grace – as He is a merciful, kind, gracious loving Father.
Who would You Rather Face It With?
I know it’s hard sometimes, and we all feel like giving up, but in the end I weighed life, and my conclusion is this: If I have to face difficulties in life, I much prefer to do it with My Father at my side all the way. I cannot imagine living my life without Him; I wouldn’t know the first thing to do. When I look back on my life – I see His mighty hand upon me guiding me though every step of the way; and in the moments I felt I wouldn’t or couldn’t possibly make it, I know He was the one cheering me on to the finish line. Oh how I love Him for standing by my side!
I DARE YOU!
Today I want to encourage you, no matter what you are going through, I dare you, no, I double dare you, to believe that God will take you through and that He will never separate Himself from you as His word says:
Romans 8:31-35 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
I encourage you today keep pressing through, in Jesus’ Mighty Name – Amen.
