When I feel attacked from all sides, when my motives are questioned, when my life seems like it’s going nowhere and when troubles seem to be piling up higher than I can possibly handle, how do I go on?
There are so many examples of people just like us in the Bible. There were the very wealthy, the physically disabled, the poor, the emotionally and spiritually challenged, those who felt no hope – people just like us. Their stories can help us face what we’re going through.
God didn’t just send extraordinary people into the world to show His power. His writings about the average guy, with typical needs show up throughout His word. The Bible is filled with the struggles of many of heroes like David, Samson, Solomon, Moses and the greatest One, Jesus. There are also stories of those struggling with loss, like Job – or those who wait for just the right moment to do the will of God, like Esther – or a prostitute named Rahab who became part of Jesus’ lineage. We are all special in God’s eyes and He has plans for each one of us. All we need to do is trust and have faith in His will for us.
Ransack the scriptures for the answers you need. They indeed are the word of God Himself.
