A lot of people think that by being a Christian that they would lead an easy life. They think that the God of the universe will take care of everything and make this journey to the heaven smooth, if they ever get there. There is this misconception that we as Christian should not do anything and that we will not encounter any problems in our life.
God never promises that our life would be easy. He never said that we will not encounter any problems, that we will not experience pain, or disappointment, or hurt, or that we will not face any challenges or failures in our life. That is not possible. For as long as we live we will face all of the above.
What God promised us is this, that when we pass through the waters, the rivers and walk through the fire, He will be with us. We will not be over taken by the waters and the fire will not burn us. Waters, rivers and fires describe all the challenges, obstacles, problems, and trials that we have, we are and we will face in our life.
Don’t ever think that our life will be easy because it will not especially we have eternal enemy the day we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. But, rest assured that God will always be with us every step of the way and that He will never leave us nor forsakes us. We should be extremely excited, powerful, feel strong and God said that we are more than conquerors because God of the universe, the source of everything will, in His own way, help us, carry us, protect us, comfort us, gives us strength and raises us up through them all. Praise God!!!!
Lord Jesus, I believe that You will be with me every step of the way that through all of my problems, You will always be there to carry me through. You are my strength, my help in times of need. In the Name of Jesus I pray.
