“Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer.” Romans 12:12
Friends, when we are faced with times of trouble, trials, and hardships, what does Satan do? He fills us with so much doom that our hearts becomes fearful and we start to doubt whether God is still listening to us. If He even is there with us.
But at that very moment, where fear and doubt starts to fill your hearts and minds you have two options. You can either get angry with God; or you can fall on your knees as you acknowledged that you need God, and put your trust in His great abilities.
The reason we get down and get discouraged in our suffering is because we have lost sight of the fact that Christ lives in us. Thus we need to keep ourselves fixed on our redemption, then we remember that our hope produces not only endurance but produces perseverance as well.
When you know that God has a detailed plan and purpose for your life and you know that God wants to be glorified in your life, you are going to endure the difficulties, and you are going to have hope in hopeless situations. You will, like the Apostle Paul, be joyful in hope. Our hope is in Jesus and eternal life spent with Him! This truth should be radiating from us!
Whatever trials come our way, we can always be joyful in the fact that we will have a future with Jesus. In the meantime, through faithful prayer and patience, we can continue to look at Him until that day has come.
Friends, I want to remind you that through faithfulness in prayer, we receive patience to wait upon Jesus in whom we find our joyful hope. Activate your prayer life today!
Heavenly Father, thank you for always being there for me. Help me to rely on you, and praise Your Holy Name in times of suffering and hardships. Help me to be thankful in every situation. In Jesus’ precious name I pray…AMEN!
