God always has a way to help!

Christ came to give us joy in the midst of our pain. He knew that we would have to endure hardship in this fallen world, but he had a plan that would carry us through and give us peace despite our struggles. There is absolutely nothing that you will lack if your faith is in Christ Jesus. It doesn’t matter difficult your circumstance in life may be, Jesus has a way to bring you his perfect peace as he works out the purpose and plan that he has for you.

We are told in John 10:10 that the thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy but that Jesus came to give us life that is abundant and overflowing. That means that believers do not have to live an unfulfilled, mundane life. Those who put their trust in Jesus are now a new creation with the ability to live in complete victory despite the circumstances that they face. The shadow of death will bring no fear to those who know that their debt was paid for on the cross at Calvary. The hand of God will supply you with the strength and power that you need to stand against the forces of evil that try to destroy your family, your health and your finances. You cannot be defeated because God has a perfect plan for your life to give you a future with hope. The destructive lies of a defeated enemy cannot harm you because the hand of God is mightier than any weapon that is formed against you. In Isaiah 40, we are told that God gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Those who put their trust in the enduring love of the Savior, Jesus Christ, will never be disappointed.

Jesus tells us in John 8:32, “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free”. Jesus came to bring light to a dark world. He came to bring life to a world that was perishing. He came to show us the way to eternal life. Jesus is all these things. He is the way, the truth and the life. He is the only way to the Father. He has given us life by his death and resurrection. And by his power, we are now set free from the bondages of sin and destruction. There is not a force in the heavens or earth that is more powerful than the power of Christ who dwells in a believer. There is now no sin, no pain and no addiction that can hold you in chains when the truth has set you free. The knowledge that God is your protector and your vindicator should fill you with the peace that Jesus won at the cross. His sacrifice not only bought us eternal life but also the right to reign with him in heaven. That is a promise that is worth the momentary trials and pain of this world. You should live your life with the knowledge that the love of God will see you through the battles of this world and bring you safely to the glory that awaits you in heaven.

If you are feeling weary and troubled at this moment, please understand that you may be trying to carry your own burdens. Scripture says to cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you (Psalm 55:22). In order to do that, you must trust that Jesus has the power to lift the pain that you have and to give you the peace that he will work all things out for your good. It is my prayer that all who read this will be set free by a revelation of the truth of God’s unfailing love.

Dear Lord, I pray that you will be the strength for those who have become weary in the battles of this fallen world. Bring them your peace and help them know that the truth that sets them free is that your plan for their lives cannot and will not fail. Problems and pain will be used to give them a greater understanding of your love. Help those who feel that they have no hope. Give them the assurance that you are the LIVING HOPE and that you will make a way to help where there is none. You are all that we need. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen
