Our dear Christian brothers and sisters, we welcome you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Today we will look at some Bible verses that will encourage us to rely on God in our critical times.
When someone has everything, he trusts God, but the problem is that when someone is in a very bad situation, he gives up his faith.
But God’s Word is telling you today that when you go through bad times, trust God more and pray and leave all your thoughts to God and He will prepare the way for you.
If we look at Job’s life in the Bible, we can see that he believed in God when he had everything, and he believed in God when he had the hardest day of his life, which resulted in a hundred times what he lost.
No matter what you study throughout the year, when the exam takes place, you know what you studied throughout the year. And it will make you understand whether you will pass or fail. In the same way, you believed in God, but when trials and temptations come in your life at that time you know how much you believed in God.
Dear children of our beloved God, remember that if you truly believe and love God, you will never lose faith in God, no matter how great the trial, no matter how bad the time, because He knows how to save you from that trial. He knows how to deliver you from your specific trials which seem so hard for you to overcome.
