God Will Get You Through It

2 Corinthians 4 8-9

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 4:8-9

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

The Coronavirus pandemic is all over the news and on everyone’s mind. It’s affecting our physical health, mental health, and our work, home and social life. People are scared and it’s important to take every precaution possible to help contain the spread of this virus. As Christians, we need to remember that God did not give us a spirit of fear but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Jesus said we would have troubles but then He said not to worry because He overcame the world.

Intercession by the Holy Spirit

Verse of the Day:  Romans 8:26

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.

At times you may come before God feeling defeated and overwhelmed to the point where words cannot convey what you want to say. Tears may stream down your face as you humbly come before the almighty God. Don’t worry if your faith is weak, it’s okay if you don’t have the right words or any words at all. The Holy Spirit that lives in you will intercede for you and help you by interpreting what is in your heart. The Holy Spirit will help you to remember God’s promises, remind you of God’s love, act as a comforter in your distress, give you strength and help you pray to God.

It’s not how many times you get knocked down, it’s how many times you get back up.  Jesus said we would have troubles then He said not to worry because He overcame the world.  Bad things happen, it’s how we handle them that matters.  Trust in the Lord with all your heart and have confidence in His love for you because He will get you through your troubles.
