5 Promises To Help us through discouraging times!

When life is full of stress and strain and problems mount up & fill your brain. Trust the one who leads & Faithfully Guides. He will always keep you by His side.

1- “I can endure all these things through the power of the one who gives me strength.” — Philippians 4:13

It certainly isn’t a promise anyone claims. But John 16:33 promises that we WILL have Problems in this life. Actually, whether we claim them or not we will still have them. Problems are as certain as life itself. That’s what makes the above promise so wonderful. Just as certainly as the problems will come, we are promised the strength of God to handle them.  IF we look steadily to Him in our challenges.

Sadly enough, even though people know they cannot successfully handle all life problems on their own. It appears that most would rather struggle with them unsuccessfully, than ask God for his amazing help and deal with them more effectively.

2- “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles; they will run and not be tired; they will walk and not be weary.” — Isaiah 40:31

One of the most wonderful things about the strength of our Maker living in our hearts. Is that He will enable us to do things that we could not otherwise do, without him.

Being in the midst of very difficult situations makes us feel overwhelmed. Until we discover Wings to rise above them. Wings that God will provides us as certainly as He does the Eagle’s Wings.  The way to attain these miraculous problem solvers is described in simple terms. “Seek and you shall find.”

3- “In the same way, the Spirit comes to help our weakness. We don’t know what we should pray, but the Spirit himself pleads our case with unexpressed groans.” — Romans 8:26

Sometimes, frustrations can pile up on us, in life. So much so, that we don’t even know how to pray. In times like this God literally hears our sighs and groanings. Let God hear from you today and experience his peace and comfort.

Do not worry if you don’t seem to have the right words. Because in times like that, you may be very sure that God is listening to the sound of your heart cry.

I remember being in Florida that the sounds of little alligators didn’t seem very impressive to me. But if you wanted the wrath and sudden attention of the mother, all you had to do was bother those little ones and that sound that didn’t mean much to you; would certainly cause the mother gator to come running. There is nothing like the sound of His children in Peril, that will elicit a quicker response from our Heavenly Father.

4- “God is our refuge and strength, a help always near in times of great trouble.” — Psalm 46:1

Nobody likes sunny Day friends. People who are there on the sunny days but nowhere to be found on the Rainy ones. God is not like that. He’s always with us. Bad days & the good. Sometimes we just need to slow down and open our eyes wider. Other times we need to just open our hearts. But God will be with us to lead us through all our experiences, & to strengthen us, if we let Him.

5- Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.  — Isaiah 41:10

When we feel overcome because fleshly conditions are mostly overcast. It is powerfully helpful to realize that not only will God be with us now, but if we let Him, he will be with us Even in our most difficult hour. Not only can we hold on to God. But we may be comforted that He will hold on to us.

God will uphold us, good times and bad. The sound of His children in need greatly moves His Parental heart. Let Him hear directly from you when you are in need.

 

God is your BFF!
