Strength In Troubles Time

Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.                              Matthew 24:34-35

Where will you turn in a time of crisis? When tragedy hits? When disaster strikes? Will it be your favorite magazine? The morning newspaper? The evening news? You will need something to give you strength and direction in your time of need, and you can’t find a better resource that the Word of God.

I once heard that one gem from the ocean is worth all the pebbles of earthly streams. Just a single pebble from the ocean of God’s Word can make all the difference when tragedy or hardship strikes. How many in their affliction have found comfort from Scriptures. 

Trusting in God has said through the Bible can sustain us and give us direction and hope and comfort when we most need it. Inspirational platitudes or clever sayings don’t help or at least, not for very long, but the Word of God does. It has been said that he who rejects the Bible has nothing to live by. Neither does he have anything to die by.

Ideas and philosophies go in and out of style with the passing of years, but the Word of God never goes out of style. It never goes out of date, unlike the morning’s news. The Word of God always will be relevant. That is why C.S. Lewis said, All that is not eternal is eternally out of date. I urge you to get a good foundation in this Book because it is only a matter of time until hardship strikes you. It happens in every life, without exception. But if you have a good foundation in the Word of God, then you will be ready for difficulty when it comes. Don’t wait until then and try and catch up. Get that foundation now.

Grace and Peace to You My Friends
