Have you ever had one of those days when life seems so, so hard? Circumstances seem as if they are about to engulf you and overpower you? I’m sure you have—you are a human being—and contrary to popular opinion—everyone suffers at one point or another in this life.
When we are suffering, that is when we are most vulnerable to believing lies. The lie I battle the most is that God doesn’t love me. I find no proof of this in scripture. Instead, God tells me: “I am love. Perfect love casts out fear. You can come to me with all your mistakes, and all your regrets and all your concerns, because I care for you.”
I think the reason, I can believe this lie, is because I will pray for something that I want very much, and that I know God wants as well, for instance Scripture tells us that God desires none to perish and all to come to repentance. I may pray and pray for a particular person, and not “see” the answer to that prayer. I can grow discouraged and downcast.
Then God, reminds me of prayers — that I saw answered after decades of praying. God reminds me of His Word—which tells me that He loves me with an everlasting love.
God reminds me that my circumstances are temporal—and He has eternity in store for me. He has eternity in store for you as well.
God also reminds me that all things work together for good to those that love Him and are called according to His purpose.

I hope you are encouraged—I know I am!
