Life is a set of challenges, problems and hassles. We sometimes imagine that if we could just deal with the immediate challenge that we are facing, all our problems would be over. But life is not like that. If we resolve one problem, others are just around the corner.The Bible is true to life. I am reminded that the relatively minor challenges, problems and hassles that I face are nothing compared to what the people of God have faced in the past, and still face around the world today.
Are you in a time of testing?God sometimes allows us to be tested, But he does not want you to face the tests and challenges of life alone. You can talk to him about your problems. We are reminded of the importance and power of prayer. Whatever situations or difficulties you may face, you can bring them to God in prayer. He is our strength and joy as we face challenges and problems in life. He will rescue us and remove the burden from our shoulders if we call on HIM
Faith means trusting God. ‘Faith’, as C.S. Lewis wrote, ‘is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted, in spite of your changing moods.’ It is hard to trust God when everything seems to be going wrong.Trust that God is in control
Take every opportunity that God gives you. In the middle of this rather depressing challenges, we are encourages us to take every opportunity that God gives us, to be persistent and never give up. Whatever challenges we’re facing today, keep praying, keep trusting, keep looking for opportunities to serve God.
