You Are Not Alone
Sometimes it can feel that we are on our own, even though we are Christians. We try to tough it out down here in our own strength.
Situations and circumstances can arise to try us, but we are not alone. God said he would never abandon us and that he is our helper (Heb 13:5-6). It’s true that adversity will come our way, we are not immune to it but be encouraged, Jesus said we have peace in him and he has: “overcome the world” (John 16:33; KJV). Paul told us that God will keep us (2 Tim 1:12), complete what he has begun in us (Phil 1:6) and that his grace (favor we don’t deserve and empowerment) is more than enough for us (2 Cor 12:9).
Nothing is too hard for God (Jer 32:27). Paul lectured the Galatians for trying to do things in the flesh and not in the Spirit (Gal 3:3). The only work God ever told us to do is to believe (John 6:29). Believe God is for you, believe he is in you as the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4). Rest in God (Matt 11:28), still your mind in God’s word (Rom 12:2) and allow the Holy Spirit to minister to you. “For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” (Rom 8:6; KJV).
The Holy Spirit is our comforter (Acts 9:31), (one who comes to our side to help,strengthen and encourage); he is the power of God to work on our behalf (Rom 8:11). Go to God’s word for your answers; the Holy Spirit will reveal them to you (John 14:26). “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness” (Isa 41:10; KJV).
