No matter what we face in life,we have a God who sits high and looks low,and as it says in Psalms 34:19 “Many are the afflictions of the righteous,but the Lord delivereth us out of them all”.
There is no temptation that can overtake you that’s not common to man; but God is faithful to us and will not allow us to be tempted beyond what we are able, but with the temptation will also make a way of escape, so that we will be able to bear it (1 Corinthians 10:13). We must also remember that God cannot be tempted, neither does He tempt any man as we see in James 1:1. We are tempted when we are drawn by our own greed and lust, which always gets us into trouble.
Yet, even though some things seem unbearable and irresistable and we feel weak, we must not only realize that God does not give us more than we can bear, but that, above all, He gives us sufficient grace to take us through as we see in 2 Corinthians 12:9. His strength is made perfect when we are weak and Jesus made us more than conquerors as Romans 8:37 tells us, therefore, we should take pleasure and rejoice and give thanks when infirmities, reproaches, persecutions and distress come to us for Christ sake. Every disappointment is for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose, as we see in Romans 8:28. But we also see this in the case of Joseph; what his brothers meant for evil, God meant it unto good (Genesis 50:20).
No matter what we go through that seems overbearing don’t lose hope because good is coming. Psalm 84:11 tells us that God does not withhold good from His children. James 1:17 reminds us that every good gift comes from Him. Luke 12:32 tells us that it is our heavenly Father’s good pleasure to give us the kingdom, Matthew 16:19 tells us that Jesus gave us the keys to the kingdom and Luke 10:19 tells us, He gives us power and authority. Therefore we should know our gifts, power and authority and use them.
When you are going through the trials of life only a true Christian will realize that you are going through because of God’s grace, His strength and His promise to keep you in perfect peace when you keep your mind on Him. Philippians 4:7 tells us that the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
God’s grace is sufficient for us all. It is our choice to receive and accept it. The same thing goes for starting a long-term relationship with God – we have to receive and accept Him. If you have not confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior, do so now. Visit the salvation page above for more information.
