There are some things we need to forget, and other things we need to remember. Our problem is, we tend to forget the things we need to remember and remember the things we need to forget! Remembering the right things is especially important when going through tough times. Here are a few things to keep in mind when life is hard:
- God is on your side.
As a follower of Jesus Christ, you are in covenant with God, and He is in covenant with you! You are special and precious to Him. You are under the covering of His blood. He is for you, not against you!
- God knows what you’re going through.
God is aware of your problems and pain. He’s not ignoring you. He knows and cares about what you’re facing.
- God’s in charge of your case.
Your case has God’s attention and action. His eyes are on your situation. He’s your Advocate.
- God’s got a plan, and He’s accomplishing a good purpose.
When stressed we become very short-sighted and myopic. All we see is the present difficulty. We use a telephoto lens on our problems, while God uses a wide-angle lens. He sees what we can’t see. He’s working out His plan, and it’s a good one.
- God’s power will deliver you from your problem or safely carry you through it.
God’s power is greater than any demon or demand we are facing. Be confident in the ability and authority of Almighty God. The demonstrations of God’s faithfulness in the past are proof of His promised faithfulness today and tomorrow.
When going through tough times, don’t forget the things you need to remember!
