In life we encounter challenges that can seem like great mountains to climb. A myriad of inconveniences can afflict our life in an abrupt and overwhelming way. There are many difficulties that we face over time such as financial problems, death of a loved one, diseases etc., but it is good to know that we are not alone! God accompanies and encourages us at every moment of our existence.
At the bible we can find messages of encouragement that can comfort us in times of difficulty. Through these teachings, we receive words that comfort us in very specific moments. These words lift us up from our ashes to go on, clinging only to the one who sent his beloved son to lay down his life for love of us. Let's look at some of these verses that can comfort our soul.
God never forsakes us
To put our trust in the Lord is to count on the assurance of having his undoubted protection in all things. We should not be anxious, because we will never be alone since no trial is greater than what we can resist. To focus on the greatness and power that only God has, is to assure victory over any obstacle no matter how great it may seem to us.
In Isaiah 41:10 the Lord teaches us that we should not fear, for He will be with us, we should not faint because He will be our strength and will always help us. He will always uphold us with the right hand of His righteousness.
God is all love
In Nahum 1:7 we are told that the Lord is good, He is our refuge in the day of trouble and He knows those who trust in Him. We must put our trust in the Lord, not doubting His infinite love and goodness, only being sure of His care and protection.
Even when the Lord allows difficult situations to happen in our lives, we have the possibility to take refuge in His arms and trust in His goodness. His promises will be with us all the days of our lives, even until the end of our lives. end of the world. Resting in his promises and in his profuse tenderness will give us peace and comfort in difficult times.
God's peace is abundant
God gives us his peace, not as the world gives it, but in his own special way. So says John 14:27 where we are clearly reminded that our hearts should not be troubled or fearful, for the Lord will be our guarantee of peace and tranquility.
Usually, when we hear about peace we tend to think that it refers to the absence of conflicts or problems. However, the concept of "Shalom" mentioned in the Bible has a much deeper meaning than that. It means to be in total well-being, and that well-being is achieved by trusting in the one who can do all things, in God our Lord. Father. Let us learn to rest in his promises and in his loving arms.
We are prepared by God to obtain the victory
With his heavenly help, God fills us with his best weapons to face daily situations. As children of a loving Father who can do all things, we must be courageous, strong and take advantage of the instruments he puts in our hands to act firmly.
With this knowledge we can be filled with His power and love to act in very specific moments of life. In 2 Timothy 1:7 we are told that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and self-control. In the midst of all difficulties we need to use self-control, our emotions should not overpower our actions. With calmness and determination, we will obtain victory and God will never fail us.
If you are prepared, you will be able to withstand
We are children of a powerful Heavenly Father and as such we have attributes given to us to overcome any obstacle. God has endowed us with what we need to resist and overcome our trials and temptations. It is precisely we ourselves who are responsible for learning to use the tools we have been given in the scriptures to overcome.
As it says Ephesians 613, where we are ratified that we must be prepared, reminding us that we must take all the necessary precautions to be prepared. armor of God, that we may be able to withstand the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
God hears our prayers and helps us
We must always keep in mind that God hears our prayers, none of them escape his ear. At times, we forget to invoke God's name in the midst of our daily challenges and trials. The problems that surround us and the threats around us cause us to become distracted. However, as long as we call on God's name, He will listen carefully and help us.
He reminds us that the life of all of us is under His will and through Him we can be saved from the snares of the world. At Psalms 55:16-18, this affirmation is described to us by reminding us that Jehovah will save us and at evening, in the morning and at noon we will be able to cry out to Him. The Lord will hear our voice and will redeem our souls in peace from any war against us, for there will be many against us.
Recognizing God's power in all things
As great and difficult as things may seem, we can be assured that God is far greater and more powerful than any inconvenience. As the creator of all that we see, He recognizes everything that happens. That is why in Isaiah 40:26 we are reminded that He has created all things.
The prophet Isaiah teaches that we must look up to heaven and ask ourselves who created all this? God, who brings forth his hosts in order and calls them all by name, by the greatness of his might and the power of his might none shall fail. By keeping our eyes fixed on his greatness, on his marvelous power and his infinite omnipresence, we will be more prepared so that we will not be tormented by vicissitudes and our trust in him can be strengthened.
Our focus on God
With our sights set on the goal we will continue to move forward without looking back. We must forget the mistakes of the past and look at what lies ahead, our earthly goals and the great goal of eternal life with God and Jesus Christ. In Ephesians 3:13-14 we are told that the great goal, the greater prize, the prize of the high calling of God must be reached without losing focus. It all depends on each one of us to reach it with determination and faith so that in this way, our Heavenly Father will pave the way for us and we can triumphantly reach the goal we have set for ourselves.
