What do you do in stormy times when you are overwhelmed by difficult situations and stressed to the limit? Like this deadly coronavirus in our way, who will you call for help?
Though we aren’t promised an easy life, we are told that Christ will be there with us when we believe in Him, and He won’t give us more than we can handle. He is our only close friend that can help us identify and overcome weaknesses, discover and use our strengths, and make other important changes. Whenever we lose confidence, God is working in the midst of our difficult situations.
A recently published book of Cynthia Harry, “As the Spirit Leads -Jesus’ Power”, conveys those hard times may come, but God is there with us through them all. An influential book filled with uplifting spiritual guidance and powerful devotions fulfills your heart with encouragement to exercise second chances to start over in the most beautiful journey with Jesus. Cynthia Harry shows beyond doubts that even our hard times can be used to glorify God as she has once drowned in unimaginable addiction to alcohol to escape her personal struggles. She emphasizes that depression comes as a part of the grief process is God’s way of clearing a place in your heart for new growth.
Some people constantly make excuses for not serving the Lord: “I’m not worthy enough” or “I’ve only been a Christian for a short time – I don’t know enough”. Not knowing that God can use people of any circumstances to make a difference for Him and the people around them. We only need to ask Him and spend time with Him so that His nature can grow within us and we can draw deeply from His limitless supply of goodness and love. Trust His perfect way and perfect timing.
Don’t let your shortcomings make you feel disqualified from serving God. Listen to Him, read and meditate on His Word, spend time alone with Him in prayer, build a deep relationship with Him and apply His Words to your daily life. Because when you know what God says, you will not fall for lies. He will hear us and give us strength, hope, and grace sufficient to carry us through. He will be our ever-present help when we’re in need, and he can give us peace that passes all understanding.
Philippians 4:6 Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Deuteronomy 31:8 It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.
