We all reach that point in life…
You know, the one where one day you look around and find yourself trapped in a “less-than-ideal” situation?
Like a job you no longer care for, a relationship that went south, a crippling health issue, or a mortgage on a house that no longer has the same luster.
Here’s the good news about your situation,
“Your pain is kinda like a bus. While it’s here you’ll feel every single ton of it weighing you down. But eventually, IT WILL HAVE TO LEAVE, and WHEN it does, the pain will go right with it.”
But, even when we feel stuck, God always opens a door that allows us to look back and see that there was a lesson in it all.

Whatever your situation, here are some of God’s promises and words to us, that I hope will encourage you and inspire you to look ahead.

“Have I not commanded you? Be courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be afraid for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. (V6) In all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight.”

2 Timothy 1:17
“For the spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”
My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.
You will be secure because there is hope; you will look about you and take rest in your safety. (V19) You will lie down with no one to make you afraid, and many will court your favor.
My soul is wary with sorrow, strengthen me according to your word.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10
Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. (V10) That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
“He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”
In all of these verses, we see God’s promise: to protect and strengthen us.
DO NOT let your situation, whatever it is, get the best of you.
God has blessed us with his spirit of power and fearlessness, so don’t let your situation or doubts trap you.
I pray this post encouraged you and inspired you to go deeper into his word.
