The truth is, we don’t know what the future holds, but when we give our lives to Jesus, He can be trusted with our future. Regardless of how difficult it feels or how many struggles we face, we can still trust Him to bring about good in our lives. Life experiences has taught me that despite the highs and lows, God promises us a bright new future (Jeremiah 29:11).
Paul said this in 2 Corinthians 4:6-10, ”For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure.b This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.
We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies.”
Here’s another truth, God’s promises are not canceled by our brokenness or hurts. Miracles are a part of His plan. When life gets ominously uncomfortable, we can often feel imprisoned by our circumstances and our choices. In this current season of uncertainty, we may feel helpless and overwhelmed. But we still have the same access to God’s mercy, grace, power, and presence.
So, if your life isn’t a bed of roses remember what is broken can be mended, what hurts can be healed, and no matter how dark it gets, Jesus is the Light of the world! God will always pour out His strength into us during our storms. He shelters us with His love, compassion, and mercy. He overcomes our brokenness and hurts with His love, peace, hope, and faithfulness. He is consistently working behind the scenes, through many hearts and lives, to strengthen us and bring us through!
