Title: Trusting God even in difficult times .
We are serving God of all gods and King of all Kings. Life is full of ups and downs, no one knows what is going to happen the next minute or the next hour, we have to trust in God in every area of our lives . In time of trouble we have to keep trusting Him even more.
(Isaiah 43:1-5) But now, this is what the Lord says—he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
I give Egypt for your ransom,
Cush and Seba in your stead.
Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life. Do not be afraid,for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west.
God created the nation of Isreal, and He had a special relationship with His people. God redeemed them and called them by name to be the ones who belong to Him. God often protected Israelites in times of trouble. When He allowed His people to suffer destruction and captivity, He was preparing them for redemption later. God wants a special relationship with us too. We belong to Him and bear His wonderful name, we must remember that He is always with us.
We must learn to cling to Him during times of adversity, because only His merciful love is strong enough to give us freedom from evil destructive power. When we go through rivers of difficulty, we will either get drown or grow stronger as we learn to keep our heads above the water. When we try to make it with our own strength, we may get drowned. When we invite the Lord to go with us, He will be in the river with us and teach us how to navigate the treacherous water. May the Lord continues to give us the enablement to trust Him always in Jesus name.
Prayers: God we thank you for your grace. We thank you for your favor and promises , you said you will never leave us nor forsake us. Help me Lord to learn how to trust in your power in Jesus name.
