Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. (Psalm 55:22 NIV)Are you facing circumstances that seem hopeless? Most Christians experience discouragement at some point in their lives. Maybe you have prayed night and day about a problem, and it has only gotten worse. Maybe years have passed, and your prayers are still unanswered. Maybe you are going through a difficult time, and you feel that no one understands or cares. Be assured that Jesus cares, and you’re not alone, for He is with you. When you come to the end of your strength, you’ll find God’s grace to strengthen and sustain you. Trust Jesus, and He will see you through.
Now let me ask you to look back over your life for a moment. Think about the trials you’ve faced and how God brought you through them. Remember when you were sick, and God healed you. Remember when your bank account was low, and God supplied your needs. Remember when He comforted and sustained you through a time of loss. Throughout all your troubles, He has never left you nor will He ever leave you. Keep praying, keep trusting, and keep believing. You are His precious child, and He will never stop being faithful. —Susan Ferguson
Heavenly Father, pour out Your strength on those who are discouraged or weary. Touch them with Your love and give them Your peace. Assure them of Your faithfulness that will continue throughout their lives. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
