Dailies ~ In His Word
October 2019

Having been declared righteous, then, by faith, we have peace toward God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by the faith into this grace in which we have stood, and we boast on the hope of the glory o God.  And not only [so], but we also boast in the tribulations, knowing that the tribulation doth work endurance;  and the endurance, experience; and the experience, hope;  and the hope doth not make ashamed, because the love of God hath been poured forth in our hearts through the Holy Spirit that hath been given to us. Romans 5:1-5

Its kind of strange to think of but when we go through troubles and tough times it gives us a chance to boast of Christ in us. Think about it for a second or two… we ‘go through’ those things and come out victorious on the other side. We experience the fears, the doubts the problems that arise because of whatever happens in our lives daily. We learn to hope in God to help us in them. This is all because we have the faith that causes us to trust God daily with our lives.
It is not as if we are righteous instantly of our own accord, but because Christ suffered even more for our sake, we can find hope and strength that we will continue to abide in Him as we keep pushing forward through the strength and love of Jesus Christ towards us. Only through faith can we figure out that God is with us even in the horribly rotten lonely and painful times, that He is there to pull us through! For If God is with us no thing can stand against us! Nothing! Not a painful shoulder, not a sprained knee, not a bout with feelings of emptiness or fear. God is with us and He will bring us through if we just have faith, and trust Him to do so. Just as He promised He will never leave you nor forsake you!
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for being with us. Help us to have the faith of a mustard seed, the strength of a mighty eagle soaring in the sky and the hope of a sinner who longs for heaven. Help us to trust You to bring us through! In Jesus’ name, amen.
