You may be having some dark hours at the moment. How are you facing them?
There is a powerful English proverb which says, “The darkest hour of the night is just before dawn.”
Perhaps, you feel abandoned at this moment; rejected; jilted. Perhaps, the world seems to be coming to an end. Perhaps, you seem to be at the end of the rope in your aspirations. Perhaps the future looks dark for you.
How are you handling things?
You might despair and want to give up hope; or to end your life.
Look! There is no reason for that. The best might be right at the corner. As the English say, “The darkest hour of the night is just before dawn.”
Print this firmly on your mind. God will never abandon you. He will always stand by you. All you need is belief; faith in Him; faith that He will not fail you, because He never fails in his promises.
Since my prayer for all the people of the world in distress, my heart has not left them. It has continued to go to the billions of people currently experiencing one agony or another.
If you are living comfortably where you are, not everybody is doing same.
There are billions who are suffering; having it hard; whose hearts are torn by sorrow, fears, and worries.
There are billions who have been rejected in love; who are suffering in their marital homes.
There are billions who are being cheated, exploited, deprived of their rights, unjustly treated, unjustly penalized; unjustly jailed.
There are billions who have been sick for years with no hope of ever recovering.
There are millions who know they will die soon; who know their days are counted; and who feel tortured by that.
There are billions, who are experiencing excruciating pain; who are on the run being hunted; who know that if captured they would be killed.
We must pray for these people. They need our prayers. Let us storm Heaven with our prayers for them; that what is torturing them may turn into their greatest blessing.
If you are one of such people, do not despair; be strong. God is real. His promises are real. He has made a strong promise to us: “I will never leave you; I will never abandon you.”
No matter how dark the night might be, draw strength from this promise. Jesus assures us, “I am the light of the world…Whoever follows me will have the light of life and will never walk in darkness.”
Thus, even in the worst circumstances, there is hope. When times are at their worst go to this great reservoir of strength to meet the challenges at hand. With enough faith in God you are invincible.
“Everything is possible for the person who has faith” (Mark 9:23).
