A trouble-free life was never promised to any of us.
If you’re alive, you’re gonna face some troubles…
The Apostle Paul wrote, “Does it mean He no longer loves us if we have trouble? No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” (Romans 8.35, 37).
Having troubles doesn’t mean God has stopped loving us.
He loves us – he always has and he always will.
Despite our troubles, overwhelming victory is ours through Jesus Christ.
Our current troubles will not have the final word.
We’ve been given a sneak peak and we know that the story ending is good: overwhelming victory is ours!
Here’s a really important truth: even in our troubles, we don’t have to be “troubled.”
“We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed…
we are perplexed, but not driven to despair…
we are hunted down, but never abandoned by God…
we get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.” (2 Corinthians 4.8-10).
Jesus said it this way: “Don’t let your hearts be troubled.”
We have a loving, compassionate, grace-giving God who knows what we’re going through. He does not abandon his kids.
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (Romans 8.28)
