You will get through this
Sometimes when our heart has been broken, we struggle to understand why. But often the healing comes first and the answers come later. Job may never have fully understood all the losses he experienced in life. But there came a time when he was able to look back at the time of pain and say with confidence, ‘He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.’ And that’s God’s promise to us too. For every trial and trouble we face in life, God has sufficient grace to carry us through. Every need we have, God will provide. He has answers for every problem. And He has comfort and healing for every hurt we experience. So when we’re walking through a valley, we need to be trusting that God will come through for us and will bring us out the other side. We often want God to take us out of situations, but sometimes we need to walk through them to grow, and to give God the glory. After recalling everything God had brought him through, Jeremiah concluded, ‘There is nothing too hard for You’ (Jeremiah 32:17 NKJV). God looks for opportunities to show us what He can do on our behalf when we put our trust in Him. It’s through our trials that we really understand the power and love of God. In situations where we feel surrounded or that seem impossible, God can show us how He can do all things. When we’re hurting, disappointed, or discouraged, we need to look to God. Sometimes it’s the last thing we feel like doing, but looking to God is the way we’ll make it through whatever we’re facing.
If you’re going through a tough time, ask God to show you that He’s with you and working on your behalf.
