Christians today are faced with more trials, tribulations and misery that we sometimes can cope or deal with effectively.
How do we come to grips with these human emotions and pains? We have to trust in the almighty God and know that he will be there for us all and we should look to the Bible for the answers we need.
The Bible states in John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. God tells us that He overcame the world and if he did that them taking us out of trials and tribulation means nothing to Him.
Romans 5:1 Therefore, being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: Isaiah 41:10 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.
We must understand that fear is to courage what water is to fire. Fear can dampen or extinguish any good we might want to do and freezes us in its tracks. In some ways, fear is the opposite of trust so Isaiah writes that we do not need to be dismayed because God will strengthen you and more than that, He “will help you” and sustain you by upholding.
