He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.
- Isaiah 40:29
Are you facing struggles today that are causing you to question God? Are your troubles or difficulties diminishing your faith in God?
Do you feel disillusioned with life?
There is purpose in your struggle. Your suffering has a purpose. Your problems and limitations have a purpose.
First, they remind us of Christ’s suffering. He knows and understands every single thing you are feeling or have ever felt.
Struggles also keep us dependent on Christ. When you are weak, He is strong, enabling you to do what you cannot do on your own. Pain and suffering keep our focus on eternity.
This earth is not our home. It is temporary. When we experience frailty, grief, and stress we can either draw near to Christ and His strength or falter in our own.
We are not designed to handle life’s suffering without God.
We need Him.
Today, as you begin your day, ask God to help you and to strengthen your heart. He will give you His power to handle life with His help.
