Through It All
What a powerful thought as I am reminded that amidst trials and hardships, Jesus has been my source of strength. It has been through these times that I have learned to depend upon His Word and more fully rely on Him as my help. God does not always bring us around storms, but walks with us through those times so that we might learn to trust Jesus more fully. As the words to the song posted above say: "If we never had a problem, then we would not know that God could solve them, nor would we know what faith in Him could do."
At this writing, I am still learning to lean on Jesus, and to trust Him as He directs me in ways that I could never have imagined. He is my total source of strength. I pray that He is the source of your strength today as well.
"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior." Isaiah 43:2-3
"The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?" Psalm 27:1
PRAYER: Dear God, thank You for staying beside us through the tough times. Help those who may be going through such a time to fully rely on You for their strength. May they place their trust in Christ alone. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
