Without a doubt, we are living in perilous times. The increase of evil puts us all within the range of attack. We are trying to survive in a time when truth of God has been thrown to the ground and trampled. The hearts of most people have grown cold. It seems that everyday brings more heartache and pain as the forces of darkness have increased their effort to destroy lives. Yet, in spite of all this, Christ is still our hope.
No matter what circumstance we face, we are never hopeless. We may be attacked from all sides but the outcome of victory was determined before the battle began. It was the price Jesus paid to defeat all of our enemies as he made us to be more than conquerors. Our pain and our struggles are working out our transformation into the image of Christ. In the midst of darkness, God’s power is near enough to help us overcome every single weapon of warfare.
The enemy has been rendered powerless and ineffective to destroy those who put their trust in the cross. Through it all, the presence of Christ is right by your side in every single storm that comes against you. His angels have been commanded to guard your life. He loves you unconditionally just as you are! His mercy is enough t meet all of your needs.
Your heartache is temporary. The devil wants you to believe that things will never change but that is a lie. The reality is that God sees your pain and is able to turn it around and use it to help you. Don’t let your faith be nearsighted because God’ has a long-range plan for your future. You cannot fall so far that the grace of God is not able to restore your life and complete the work that he began in you.
It may seem as though you are always going up against mountains in your life but they have no power to block your future determined by God long before you were born. You have a divine destiny that cannot be crushed by the troubles of this world.
In the center of each storm in life is the magnificent power of God who is working all things out for good. He has a divine purpose and plan for everything that touches your life. We read in God’s word in 2 Chronicles 16:9, “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose hearts are fully committed to him”. He is looking for true believers who can trust him in the bad times as well as the good times.
We are a royal army who are being trained to rule in a kingdom that will never end. Be mindful that your struggles won’t endure, but because of Jesus Christ, your eternal future will!
Please know that I am lifting up to God all those who need to hear this message. No heartache in your life will ever be bigger than the God that you serve. We live in difficult times. The days are filled with evil and people are struggling everywhere.
Whatever you are struggling with, Christ paid the price to give you hope through it all. He can make a way to help you no matter how impossible it may seem.
If you want Christ in your life and the knowledge that you will be with him forever, it is my prayer that you will make that decision to surrender to him now. You can never fall too far that his love cannot lift you and bring you back to him. Victory comes only through Christ. He is with you at this moment. You are never alone.

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
