And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces.
- Isaiah 25:8
Do you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders? Do you feel like a hamster on a wheel unable to get off?
Perhaps you can’t see anything good in your life, because all you feel is disappointment, grief, betrayal, or pain.
Depression, discouragement, and suffering happen to everyone.
Each of us has different struggles or painful life circumstances that cause us to bottom out from time to time. However, God does not intend for us to live under the weight of pain and suffering for long periods.
While we may feel hopeless, God is the God of hope. He desires to comfort us. He wants to be near us.
His word even tells us that He will wipe away the tears from all our faces.
Today, ask the Lord to lift you out of your despair and give you a firm place to stand strong in Him. In this world, you will have trouble, but you can take heart, because He has overcome the world.
