How to Have Faith in Troubled Times
Some of you may be suffering today. Some of you may be in physical pain. Some of you may be in emotional pain. Yet all of us have something to be thankful for. Remember the Children of Israel as they walked out of Egypt to the Promised Land. The trials and suffering in that desert. The complaining.
They forgot at times what an awesome God they had. A God who parted the Red Sea. A God who heard their cries in Egypt. A God who delivered them from the death angel when they placed the blood on their door posts.
They forgot so quickly, the powerful God they served. You and I have been redeemed from the bondage of our Egypt. The blood of Jesus has been placed on our door posts protecting us from the death angel that we might live forever in heaven with our Lord. Yet today we are walking through the desert of this earth as ambassadors from Heaven. You may be attacked on all sides by the messengers of Satan, but our God is greater. The gates of hell shall not prevail against us. You may be in physical pain.
Trust HIM, Praise HIM. He is your deliverer…He is your God. If He doesn’t heal you of that pain, He will give you the power to rejoice in it. For it is in suffering that we become more like Christ and somehow love him more. And if the demons of fear, worry and discouragement attack you,,,,the power of praise will cast them away. I love you. Take courage today in your Lord and Savior and remember how much he loves you. He is the God that parted the Red Sea for you. He is the God that delivered you from Egypt… He loves you.
