There are many situations in this world that make us feel discouraged and our hope weak. Problems can make us feel that no one cares about us and that we have to face things all alone, but that is not true.
God is with us through all things and we can talk to Him about anything and everything. He understands how we feel at times like these and He wants to help us and encourage us. Jesus Christ went through the same things we go through without sinning.
“For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” Hebrews 4:15 We are never alone when we know Christ. We can trust Him to always be with us.
Our hope is in Christ and we can rejoice in knowing that He will never leave us nor forsake us.
“By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” Romans 5:3
