Psalm 34:18 -The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
Romans 8:28 - And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. (NASB)
Questions to Ponder:
Have you ever wondered about life's struggles? Have you ever thought, "Why is this happening? Why doesn't anyone understand?"
Many times in life we have these thoughts. Let's consider the following: "If we didn't have life struggles, would we willingly seek the true and living God for ourselves? If everything in our life was perfect, would we truly understand God's love for us? Is there purpose in our pain?"
Let us seek God with these questions, when we go through trials. Let us remember that God promises that He will cause it to work for our good. We may not be able to grasp those thoughts while going through, but as time progresses He will begin to manifest that truth in our lives. We have to know that God loves us with an everlasting love! He has purpose for our pain and He cares about everything that concerns us. Take one day at a time and lean and depend on our heavenly Father, knowing that His purpose is not to harm us but to give us an expected end! Be encouraged, be blessed, and let Him strengthen your heart! Enjoy this worship song by Israel Houghton: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtlAqZd39u0
