If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

God is Faithful

Do you ever feel really burdened and overwhelmed and like you're just not going to make it through your circumstances?  I know I have, more recently than ever before in my life.  But we're making it and guess what?  I've actually grown closer to the Lord and stronger in my faith.  Here's a scripture from Paul that I think fits and explains why we sometimes have to go through what we go through.

I think you ought to know, dear brothers and sisters, about the trouble we went through in the province of Asia. We were crushed and completely overwhelmed, and we thought we would never live through it.
 In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we learned not to rely on ourselves, but on God who can raise the dead.
 And he did deliver us from mortal danger. And we are confident that he will continue to deliver us. 2Corinthians 1:8-10


So be encouraged my friend. If you are going through a hard time right now or living in circumstances you just don't understand.  You will make it through because God is faithful and He will deliver.

  3. Relying on God is so much better than trying to do it ourselves. He is faithful.

  4. Trials are hard, but without them, we probably wouldn't ever experience the kind of fellowship with our Lord as we do when we're leaning on Him. I beleive it's what Paul was talking about when he said in Phil. 3:10 "I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death..."
