“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33
Life is hard for everyone, but for the believer, in the hardness, trials, and pains of life that we face, we live from faith, which produces hope, and hope never fails. Hope is the thing that says I don’t know how I’m gonna get through this, I don’t know what’s gonna happen, but I know the character of the God I serve. I know he loves me, I know he has the power, and He’s never failed me in the past. God is faithful. He will carry me through. He’s going to carry you through. Keep hope alive. Have faith. Take one more step and persevere. Do not quit. It is not who you are. You are a winner. You are a succeeder. You are somebody who is given everything you need to cross that line and to enter into the calling God has given you.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, thank you for being faithful and for empowering me to live through the trials of life. Help me to praise you in all situations. Amen.
REFLECTION: How has God shown He is faithful in your life?
