“The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.”

(Judges 6:12)


Really? When difficulties come, it is easy to give up. When we face illness or death in life, it’s hard not to get discouraged.It’s easy to be overwhelmed sometimes due to lack of success, or lack of support. We often reach to a point of despair. We feel it’s time to give up,


This is surely how the disciples felt. They had been fishing all night and had caught nothing. But Jesus said to them, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish." (John 21:6)


All the heroes of the faith faced moments like this in life. Moses before Pharaoh, David and the Israelites facing the Philistines and Goliath. They trusted in the Lord, and God made them victorious. Jonah is remembered for his reluctant obedience, but God rescued him, turned his hopelessness into obedience to Him, and an entire city received God’s mercy.


Today God is with us. When discouragement comes our way, know that we have Christ by our side to help us through. He has not abandoned us.


Knowing this, despite our circumstances, we are able to worship God with fellow followers of Christ. Let's do just that today.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne
