We go through trials and temptations even as believers but we have been assured by God that the storm of life will not swallow us. Trials and temptations will come, the storm will rage against you, the enemy of your soul will come to shake you, but be rest assured, none can overcome you.
The word of God says in John 1:5 (NIV) " The light shines in the darkness and the darkness cannot extinguish it." A born again child of God is light, so don't be afraid when the kingdom of darkness is attacking you, they can't overcome you.
What do you do when times are difficult? All you need to do is to fix your eyes on Jesus no matter the storm surrounding you. If you can keep your eyes on Him, you won't sink, fear, anxiety, doubt will be gone. Only Jesus can help you in the times of difficulty.
Hebrews 12:2 (NIV) says "We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor besides God's throne."
Keep your eyes on Jesus who endured so much pain on the cross but never gave up. Don't give up too. There is a place of honor ahead of you.
If you are depressed or going through one challenge or the other, remember this, Jesus loves you and He is ready to carry that burden if only you will drop it all at His feet and fix your eyes on Him. He said in Matthew 11:28 " Come unto me all ye that labour and heavy laden and I will give you rest"
