In Times Like These

Its inevitable that we live in a broken world. Broken governments, broken systems, broken homes and broken hearts. But in our most trying hour, there is hope! In Philippians 4:13, it says that ” We can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens us” there is no hopelessness in Christ Jesus. With Him in our hearts, nothing is impossible and He gives us strength and power, love and discipline to walk through the broken pieces of life which you will find in 2 Timothy 1:17.

We are tottering in uncertainty and panic is settling in the hearts of many but there is hope even in the darkest time we face. This is no surprise to God and He knows everything that is going on and He hears the cries of fear, He sees the terror and knows that peace is nearly extinguished. But there is good news! We have a heavenly Father that is full of compassion, full of comfort. He comforts us in our troubles and he is full of mercy and grace and all we have to do is call upon Him. He commands us to be strong and courageous. He tells us not to be afraid and not to fear nor does He desire for us to be discouraged. He says He will go with us wherever we go and He will never leave us nor forsake us! These are promises you can be sure of.

Many of us through our own strength feel very small, but God’s strength is so much bigger. There is more than enough of his strength to see us through. Don’t lose hope in times like these. We need a Savior! We need Jesus! And He is right here waiting for you to call upon Him. When we cannot depend on anyone else, we can certainly know, that He will always be there no matter what.

Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous hand.”

John 14:27 ” Peace I leave you; peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and not be afraid.”

Joshua 1:9 ” Have i not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Psalm 27:13-14 ” I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”

As we go through these times together, look to the hills from whence your help comes from. Our maker and creator, our Father God is right there with you. He is our hope! He is our light! He is our redeemer! No one on this earth can provide you with so many reasons to keep your head held high, but Jesus can, He has and He will. In Christ alone, there is power and in Christ alone there is peace, hope and a reason to live…. Be blessed

Isaiah 41:10 “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.”
