Our Strength in Times of Trouble
by Gabriella Tzin
When times of trouble strike, where do you run to? In whom do you find comfort? More often than not, when we find ourselves in a difficult situation, it is easy to shut out everything and to get lost in the predicament.
It can be challenging to turn to God with our burden and to cry out to Him for help. Even though it is not always simple to do so, it is essential to bear in mind that the Lord understands our every trouble and distress. He waits on us eagerly to turn to Him so that He can take on our burden as His own and lighten our load.
The comfort of our Creator is unfathomable. He can give us the strength to carry on even when we feel like we are fighting a losing battle, and through Him we can find hope amongst darkness. With that in mind, I’d like to encourage you all with the words of Psalm 119:48-52:
“I reach out for your commands, which I love, that I may meditate on your decrees. Remember your word to your servant, for you have given me hope. My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life. The arrogant mock me unmercifully, but I do not turn from your law. I remember, LORD, your ancient laws, and I find comfort in them.”
