How to Handle Difficult Times

June 6, 2014

Should we welcome difficult times? YES

How do we do this? Trusting in God

Who dwells in us? The same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in us. Romans 8 :11

Is there anything we can’t handle as Christians? No

When are we without the Lord? Never

Deuteronomy 31:6

New International Version (NIV)

6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”


James 1:2

King James Version (KJV)

2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations

 ( Diver an indefinite number more than one)

James 1:2

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

2 Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various [a]trials,


Philippians 4:13

King James Version (KJV)

13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Philippians 4:13

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

13 I can do all things [a]through Him who strengthens me.


Isaiah 26:3

King James Version (KJV)

3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Isaiah 26:3

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

3 “The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,
because he trusts in You.

So we should look at difficult times as opportunities to trust him, he is with us all the time, and if the scripture is true and all things are possible, then there is nothing that we cannot handle with the help of the Lord, but without him and his strength we would not be able to make it past the first difficulty we encounter. We must grip his hand and ask him to lead us and communicate with us and let our thoughts be filled with trust and thankfulness. So, no matter the problem we are faced with in our daily walk. He will bring perfect peace to us as long as we stay close by him. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God.

Matthew 6:33

King James Version (KJV)

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

 God Bless You All!
