I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.
–Psalm 32:8 NIV
When you are surrounded with blessings, it is easy to be confident in your faith. However, when trials come your way, it is also easy to doubt. You might lose hope and feel like the Lord has forgotten you. This cannot be further from the truth.
Living the Christian life is not always easy, but it is always worth it. There are times when the journey appears to be very hard. But God is consistent with His love even when you don’t feel it. You have to trust that Jesus walks with you through trials and listens to your every petition. His timing often doesn’t match yours, but His timing is always perfect.
Remember, discouragement does not come from God but from the adversary. You are working for the Lord and not for people. Knowing that the Lord your God loves you and cares for you should encourage you. He wants you to hold on to the promise that He will pour out His grace and give you inner peace. You are never forgotten.
- Surrender your worries to the Lord and rest in His power.
- Trust in God that you are never alone or forgotten.
