Trusting God in Tough Times, Part 1

Trust God to be on your side!

Psalms 118:

What a thought that is to know that God is on our side. David mentioned in the Psalms about how God was before him, beside him, above him. Can you wrap your mind around that? How encouraging that is to know that no matter where I am or what I am going through, He has my back. That excites me.

So, when you have to cry, He is there. When you are afraid, He is there. When uncertainty is all around, He is there. When you want to quit, He is there. When you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, He is there. When you want to run away, He is there. When you want to crawl in a whole and be left alone, He is there. Isn't that awesome to know?

If you have trusted God with your life, then you have true promise of God keeping you and helping you through the tough times. If you have tried to do it your way and without God, then today is the day to bring Jesus to your side. All you have to do is pray, Jesus, forgive me of all my sins and come into my heart. That is it.

If you prayed that, then He is instantly at your side because you have invited Him to be.
