“My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.” Psalm 119:50
The Lord has promised each and every one of us — obey His laws and put no other god before Him, and He will not abandon us, He will deliver us from our suffering and He will punish our enemies.
During those times when life feels like a nightmare you can’t wake up from, it’s comforting to know that God is with you. More than just being there, your strength to persevere comes from your faith that God will turn your situation around. He will bless you, because He loves you the way that you love Him.
So when life becomes too much for you, stop trying to do it on your own. Turn your problems over to God. Admit to Him that you are not strong enough or wise enough to fix your life. The Lord loves humility. In fact, He rewards it. Let Him direct your actions, and trust Him. Follow through without question and without deviation. Don’t make excuses and don’t think you can cheat here or there.
And when you pray and pray but you don’t hear the Lord speaking back to you, rest assured that He hears you and is working on your behalf. Open your bible and dwell on His word. Let His laws govern all your actions, regardless of the outcome. And in the end, whether in this life or the next, you will receive all the blessings the Lord has promised you, more even than you can imagine.
