“Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.”Proverbs 16:24 NIV
God’s word is powerful and life giving. God’s word is not meant only to be read, it is meant to be meditated upon. When we meditate upon God’s word it transforms our minds. When our minds are transformed our lives are transformed.
As we grow in maturity we learn not to rely on our feelings, but instead to rely and stand upon the truth of God’s word. When we view circumstances it will seem as if hope doesn’t exist. But when we meditate upon God’s word and His promises we find that He intentionally works in difficult curcumstances.
God has intentionally designed our lives in a way in which we will face challenges all along the way. If you have been led to believe that following Jesus means a life of ease then you have been lied too. The true Christian life is filled with pain and suffering. But in the midst of that pain the Lord’s grace is sufficient and His peace is ever present. Hold fast and stand upon the promise of God’s word. He is faithful.
