In the book of Hebrews, we find encouragement for God’s people to persevere and draw near to Him. When facing all kinds of difficulties, many of us have a tendency to power through in our own strength. But the reality is, that’s never effective, at least not for long. Instead, God wants us to come closer to Him.
All too often, our frustrations about life impact our ability to submit to God and be intimately connected with Him. Trusting our Father requires humility. We must remember He alone knows all. But we also need to keep in mind that He loves us more than anyone can grasp.
When we stay focused on Jesus, we can take comfort in knowing He’ll lead us through the hard places (Isaiah 41:10-13). As you continue walking with Him, trust that He already knows what will happen in your life, and that regardless of what lies ahead, He will never leave you.
Memory verse: Isaiah 41:10-13.
