Encouragement for your daily walk with God
According to some popular, contemporary theology, your life should be pain-free. I haven’t found that to be true in my experience. In fact, life is sometimes difficult and full of pain. That being said, God has promised to always be present with us in the midst of our circumstances. Do you believe that? I mean, do you really believe it? If you do, you can have comfort and hope no matter what you face.
Sarah and Abraham are a prime example. God had been promised them a child. How many years of heartache had they experienced before having that child? Year after year, decade after decade, their hope and dreams of a child were crushed — over and over and over again. Now, at age ninety-nine and eighty-nine, would they risk hoping again? The answer is “yes,” and what a payoff!
What are you facing today? Does your future look bleak? Then unleash the truth to your soul that God is with you! Believing that, really believing that, gives you confidence and comfort in the midst of life’s difficulties.
Against all hope he [Abraham] believed, so that he might become a father of many nations according to that which had been spoken, “SO SHALL YOUR DESCENDANTS BE.” Romans 4.18
