With so many people out of work, losing their homes, struggling with debts, and hoping for answers it has become apparent that today’s society is not prospering. So many people have felt the tug of hopelessness and undoubtedly wish that there were some way to make life a bit easier. That’s where the Lord comes in. It’s through hardships that He tests our faithfulness. “I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity” 1 Chronicles 29:17.
In such times of distress, the answer is not to give up. The world today is a sinful one and it is not hard to imagine that God would be unhappy as He looks down from Heaven. Each struggle a person faces is one sent by God to test his or her faithfulness, but God has given us the promise that He will never burden us with more than we can handle. The answer to the struggle is God. Seek His guidance and ask for His blessings and you will receive it. It is never too late for prayer, forgiveness, and a closer walk with the Lord. Whether you be a sinner, a lost soul, a Satanist, a Buddhist, or a Christian you can turn to God. His love and forgiveness are never-ending, all He asks is that you follow Him.
Guidance, wisdom, strength, encouragement, and life lessons can all be found through Christ. When you are looking for answers a simple prayer or a verse out of the Bible can work miracles. It is as Annie S. Hawks said: “I need Thee every hour, most gracious Lord; No tender voice like Thine can peace afford. I need Thee every hour, in joy or in pain; Com quickly and abide, or life is vain.”
