Do you feel like you just can’t go on any more? Trials have come at you relentlessly and you feel like you are real close to just throwing in the towel? What is all this for you have asked the Lord. It is times like these when our flesh is weak that Mr.Devil comes along and says to us “So where is your God now?”
But the Lord says,”Remember the last trial when you thought that you were going to sink? You never thought that you would make it out of that one either, but my child, I proved myself faithful to you then and I will again!Just trust me. Peter looked at the waves about him when I asked him to trust me in an impossible situation but did I let him fall? No, and Neither will I let you fall. Just keep your eyes on me like Peter did! Trust me to uphold you with my victorious right hand! I will not let you sink!”
What’s it all for you ask? Why must I go through all this difficulty? Well, for an eternal benefit. Remember that this life is only temporary and the Lord is preparing you for an eternal purpose which you will not completely understand until you meet the Lord face to face. Don’t look at how the heathen prosper and compare yourself with them. They have their reward in this life but yours will be in the next! Keep your eyes on heavenly things!
Oh, our hearts will shout for joy when one day we see God’s love in its full manifestation! Take heart and do not faint! Run the race he has set before you and run to win the prize, a glorious inheritance !
“For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison,” 2 Corinthians 4:17
