Struggle

We all know that life isn’t easy.  Things often go wrong.  Days stretch on and it’s hard to see the end in site.

That feels so true.  Take heart!  We have hope and we have Jesus.

He cares about you and about me.  He won’t leave us to struggle alone.  He will be our shelter and our guide.

The bible says God is a refuge and a stronghold.

A stronghold is defined as a place that has been fortified so as to protect it against attack. Attack?

It’s no wonder we are depressed, weary and oppressed.

Life is a war, a spiritual war. The devil wants us to believe we are alone and defeated. It is true, life can be a struggle. We can be weary in the fight but we are not alone.

The Lord will never forsake you.  He loves you and will protect you.  Trust, believe, and run to Jesus.     Psalm 9:9-10

The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed,
    a stronghold in times of trouble.
Those who know your name trust in you,

    for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.
