“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.” 2 Corinthians 4:8-9. We are daily faced with life’s challenges. In fact, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ “promised” us trouble! “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33). If God knew we are going to suffer in life, He also knew how to solve the problem.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the LORD.” Jeremiah 29:11-14(a)
God says we would suffer some challenges and also promises to fulfill His good plans for our lives. The only requirement He wants from us is to pray to Him, to seek Him with all our heart.
