"Strength in Troubled Times"

“Strength in Troubled Times”

But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble.  And the Lord shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in Him.      Psalm 37:39-40

Most people who are TRUE CHILDREN of the LIVING GOD, can and do face adversities, which comes their way, with PEACE in their HEARTS.  This is POSSIBLE because of their relationship with the ALMIGHTY GOD, and they BELIEVE that HE IS ABLE to DELIVER them.  Whether, He removes the problem or takes them through to a SAFE-PLACE. They TRUST in His WISDOM and LEADERSHIP to see them through.

Whenever a TRUE BELIEVER goes through an ordeal, it not only STRENGTHENS their FAITH, but it ENHANCES their TRUST in the ONLY ONE who can CHANGE their circumstances.  They KNOW that God will DELIVER them from their dilemma, because of their FAITH and TRUST.

It is a GREAT thing to be a TRUE BELIEVER, because we KNOW how it is ALL going to end.  And when our FAITH and TRUST in God is STRONG, we KNOW that one way or the other HE WILL DELIVER His Children, those who have given their HEARTS and LIVES to Him, and who have a CLOSE RELATIONSHIP with Him.

They are the ones who will have PEACE and a STEADFAST FAITH in the One who IS IN CONTROL.  Is He in CONTROL of YOU and your situations?  Or, are you a part of the WICKED and SINFUL people, who continuously REJECT God’s Only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, who GAVE His life so that mankind might have ETERNAL LIFE in Heaven, with ALL its BLESSINGS, and to be able to ESCAPE HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE?

No one is given a guarantee, which states that they will not face death, at some point in time.  In other words, we ALL have an appointment with death, and we WILL MAKE that appointment.  For the TRUE BELIEVER, this should not be something to WORRY about, because of our FAITH and TRUST in God, we KNOW what is waiting for us.  But for those, who have NOT ACCEPTED the Lord Jesus as their SAVIOR and LORD, they need to realize that their ETERNAL DESTINY is HELL.  However, they NOW have the opportunity to TURN AWAY FROM their sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. And CONFESS their sins, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  BELIEVING, with ALL their HEARTS, that JESUS died for them, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for them, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and put their FAITH and TRUST in Him, because He will DELIVER them!  So, do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
