Lean on the Rock

When you become a Christian, it doesn’t mean that you will live on a perpetual “high.” The Psalmist David went down to the very depths, and so did the Apostle Paul. But in the midst of all circumstances God’s grace, peace, and joy are there. The tears will still come, the pressures will be felt, and so will the temptations. But there is a new dimension, a new direction, and a new power in life to face the circumstances in which you live.

Listen to a 1-minute message on hope in the midst of suffering.

Prayer for the day

David and Paul have given me the example of trusting You, Lord, even in the excruciating valleys of life. Like them, I praise You.

    Yes, God’s Holy Word has numerous examples of Godly servants who experienced difficult times and were in deep despair. Likewise they had times of great joy as well. These biblical examples are there as reminders that God will be with his children always. He will never abandon or forsake members of his family because we are his creation and his love for us is too great.

  5. Joyce Paul says:

    Father, help us never lose sight of the unconditional Love You have for us, and let us hold on to that hope when our labor and the fruit of our labor are gone. Praise the Lord!!! Amen.
