Who’s in the fire with you??? We’ve ALL been through tough times and some of us are STILL going through tough times. The real question is who’s in the fire with you?
Tough times often push us into the arms of Jesus, causing us to cling to Him. Perhaps, that’s the point of going through tough times: to push us into the arms of Jesus, causing us to cling to Him, teaching us, and reminding us, that Jesus NEVER leaves our side. Like the scripture says, “never will I leave you, never will I forsake you” and that means during the good times and especially the bad.
Jesus told us that there would be hard times, “in this life, you will have trials and tribulations, but take heart, I have overcome the world”. So, for anyone who thinks the Christian life or being a follower of Jesus is going to be a bowl of cherries, must think again, because you’ve been misinformed. The scriptures teach us otherwise. But, the scriptures ALWAYS encourage us. Remember that you are never alone when the trials come. Remember that at the end of every test, there is a testimony! Each day above ground is another opportunity to press forward and kill it. So, let’s do this!!!
