Trust in His Word

Whether it is a bad relationship, a loved one has been called home, or financial distress, there are certain to be moments in life where you ask God, “why?”  I want to let you know you can rejoice, because problems are only temporary.  How do I know, because His Word told me so!


The His Word says affliction is just for a moment. “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”2 Corinthians 4:17. Another scripture reads - joy cometh in the morning “For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.” Psalm 30:5.  No matter what you are going through, you have to remain steadfast, trusting and believing God’s Word is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8. In His Word, He promises He will never leave you or forsake you.  “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”Hebrews 13:5.

You must understand, life is like a long road, and your eyes can only see so far ahead. Isn’t it good to know God can see all the way down the road?  So, when life takes you for an unexpected turn or things do not quite work out the way you envisioned, stand still and know God still cares for you. “For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, so that by steadfastness and by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope.” Romans 15:4.  What is the encouragement of the scriptures that brings hope? The scriptures point to Jesus Christ and the salvation that he brings, that is the hope for all the ages. God has given us his very words to instruct or guide us into hope of who He is and how to gain salvation. When we read the Bible we are made aware of the life that God has for us, and the promises of power, protection, purpose, and provision all become a part of who we are, and with God’s help. I am able to see victory.

This is my Prayer: God help me remain steadfast, trusting and believing in the truth and power of Your Word. God what is Your will for me, not just for today, but for tomorrow, and every day after.  Lord help me see is path me have laid before me and affirm it in Your Word.  In Jesus name, Amen.
