Bible Verse for Today
“For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, do not fear; I will help you.” (Isaiah 41:13)
There is nothing more comforting than this. Imagine having a powerful person behind you and with the influence of the person, you can do anything. That will make you free and happy. In the bid to make a living, to meet our needs, or provide for the family, we will have to make some hard decisions. These decisions alone are challenging. We are careful not to make wrong decisions, if we make wrong decisions, it will affect us now and also in the future.
All of these thoughts make it challenging for us. But still, we need to make a choice and we need to do the right thing. Jesus never promised that we will not face challenges. He said the truth about life, He told us that we will face challenges in this life but he said something also. John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Jesus promised us peace. If we face tribulations and feel helpless overcoming challenges, Jesus will make a way for us.
Jesus can calm the storms that are troubling our lives. At the place of work, we face challenges, in schools, there are challenges. Every day, new challenges come up and we are to face them.
If we think we can solve these things, we might end up failing. 1 Corinthians 10:12 “So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!” One thing that we can do in the time of challenges is to rest on Jesus Christ. Let us lean on God and not rely on what we know.“
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
