” I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.” Psa 118:17
The above verses is a very beautiful versus. It hope to the people in hopeless situation. Our trial may be sickness, financial crisis, depression, exam failure, joblessness , anything may be our problem which drives us to end our lives, But we must not die, our hope, trust, faith in God will make us to succeed in our life. One thing we note here is, king David encourages in himself towards God. There may be situation where no one is there to encourage or comfort but still our Lord Jesus will strengthen and comfort us.
2Timothy 1:12 “For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.”
Apostle Paul said the above verses. He was sure that Lord Jesus Christ who called him, is able to preserve him until the day of redemption . God who have called us is able to preserve us until his coming (rapture). We need only to believe in Him. It is difficult to live a christian life but it is not difficult to believe in Jesus Christ. If a Christian says there is no trials or sufferings in their life, it only shows that they are far away from Jesus. Jesus will test our faith when are close to Him. If we suffer with Jesus , we shall also reign in His kingdom. The suffering Christian Life along with Jesus Christ makes life easy and beautiful. In suffering Christian life if we forget Jesus , then we will feel the suffering. Let God give us His everlasting Grace to endure this suffering and reign with Him in Eternity.
Isa 49:15 “Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.”
Our beloved ones may forget us but our creater God never forgets us. God have graven our names on His palms which cannot be erased. We in His mighty hands no one can pluck us away from Him. The greatest love on this world is the love of mother on her child.God reminds us even though mother may forget her child but He never forget us. It is we who forget the God many times. In times of trials we seek humanely help rather seeking God. Let God give us grace to trust only on Him.
“For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: ”
There may be many failures in our life but our Lord Jesus Christ will restore all that we have lost. We must not regret for what have lost, but submit to God and pray in His presence. He will answer our prayer and bless us in His time. Praise the Lord always.
