Jesus said that in this world we will have trouble and that is a fact. But he is also said to be of good courage because He has overcome the world. Whenever we are faced with difficulties, troubles, heartaches, and trials, it is easy to allow them to consume our thoughts, attitudes, and actions. Sometimes it is a traumatic sudden disaster that came out of nowhere. Other times, it may seem like a never-ending struggle for which there seems no solution or escape.
Our enemy loves to isolate us and convince us that we are alone and that no one else could understand or relate to what we are going through. If you are a born-again believer in Christ you are never alone and never in a place that God does not care about or relate to. And yet we often look around and feel hopeless and depressed due to circumstances we do not like or understand. We may feel God does not understand what we are going through. But allow the words of Psalm 147:5 to sink into your troubled heart.
“Great is our Lord and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite. “
Heartache, pain, and sorrow are all part of the human experience in our fallen state and world. But God has not left us to deal with life and problems on our own. He has sent the Holy Spirit who is our comforter. It may be true that others may not understand because we are all limited and often self-centered. But that is never the case with the Holy Spirit who can comfort us and love us even in desperate times.
“The Lord is near to all who call upon Him. To all who call upon Him in truth. ”
I don`t know your current situation but what I do know is that God loves you and He cares. We must resist viewing God through our circumstances and remember the proof of His love was demonstrated at the cross.
“casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”
1 Peter 5:7
