Where do you turn to when your back is up against a wall? As believers, we should be turning to God amidst the struggles that life brings us. We need to be sure to remember that joy isn’t produced from lack of suffering, true joy is from God’s presence! No matter what we may be going through, if we seek God’s presence, we can find peace, joy, and comfort in the situation!
The first step to this is not giving the situation more power than it actually has. Don’t subscribe to a spirit of fear and anxiety regarding the outcome—have confidence in God’s plan for your life and find comfort in His presence! Don’t let the situations and obstacles that life brings you scare you—God is bigger than anything we could ever face!
We also need to be sure to stay close to God always, not just when we have something, we need help with. We should constantly pursue His presence in our lives. We should strive to follow His guidance at every opportunity and fulfill the amazing plan He has for our lives! Stay focused on Him, and don’t let the difficulties of life make you lose focus!
In conclusion, make sure you stay focused on God no matter what is happening in your life. Seek Him for comfort, joy, and peace. His presence is greater than any difficulty, pain, or hardship that we could ever face in our lives. Recognize this and seek His presence in all you do! Find joy in Him amidst the storms of life!
