Throughout the lives of others, and even in our own lives, we have seen and go through times when we doubt and have struggles and troubles. Our natural reaction to these hard situations would be to throw ourselves a pity party and go into a state of a depression-like mindset. It’s natural because these struggles and troubles aren’t normal. We all want a good and smooth life, but when things don’t go our way, we get bent out of shape. I can admit that I have done this myself.
No matter what life gives you, we can trust that we have the one true God to look to for help. He wants us to lift up our hands in a child-like manner, showing Him that we are helpless and are in need of someone greater than ourselves. When we do this, we put our faith and all in His hands, believing that He will give us truth in our doubts, and strength and peace in our troubles. God knows our life from beginning to end, and is already at the other side of whatever circumstance you may be in right now. No, you may not know what the outcome will be, but He does because He placed you in this predicament to build up your faith and relationship with Him. My Lord is the maker of miracles and the God of impossibles. He can take your situation and allow good things and miracles to come from it. You just have to want and allow those good things to come into your situation. God can take the messiest story, gather the pieces, mend them into something, and create an amazing thing out of it.
There is power in the blood of the Lamb. This power can give and take away. God knows what we need and what will benefit us most. Our faith and trust in Him shows proof that we are giving our all to Him, and His wonder working power can go far beyond what we think to take a storm and calm it in an instance. Trust the Lord today in knowing that no matter how hard your battle is, He claims victory over it and will provide you with what you need to get to the other side. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Stay strong and hope in this. He can move mountains. When you are at the end of the tunnel, praise the Lord and share the Good News of what He has done, both what He did on the cross, and what He has done and continues to do in your life.
