“I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2
God longs for us to have an abundance of joy and peace in our hearts, even in times of disappointment, pain, or great sadness.
When we operate in our own strength, we will grow weary as things come against us suddenly and unexpectedly. Using our faith and trust in Jesus Christ as the catalyst, we must be open and willing to allow the Holy Spirit to work in and through our circumstances.
As we begin to rely on God’s strength and the promises which are found throughout the Bible, we will be able to go through our circumstances with the trust and assurance that God is in control. When the storms subside, the sails may be battered and torn, but we will not sink because Jesus will always be our anchor in the storms of life.
