WE CAN TRUST HIM
“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”
Hebrews 13:5,6 KJV
Have you ever been so discouraged you felt like going to bed and staying there? Jesus understands how you feel. When He was here on His mission, He also became discouraged. I’m sure there were times when He felt like giving up but because He loves His Father and us, He didn’t give up.
Arthur A. Luther wrote a beautiful hymn about our precious Saviour “Jesus Never Fails”. “Earthly friends may prove untrue, doubts and fears assail; One still loves and cares for you, one who will not fail. Jesus never fails, Jesus never fails; Heav'n and earth may pass away, but Jesus never fails.”
No matter how many dark valleys we have to go through, Jesus will pick us up in His loving arms and carry us until the pain goes away. He will be faithful to set us once again on the mountain top of happiness. O how Jesus loves you. He loves you so much He died for you and He wants you to be happy.
We read in the Bible. “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). Don’t let satan keep you discouraged. Ask Jesus to help you. He loves you and is waiting for you to come to Him.
