7 Reminders for Those Who Are Struggling:
Recognize that we have a real enemy whose mission is to steal, kill, and destroy.
But Christ came to give abundant life and joy.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10)
Choose not to be driven by fear.
Don’t be afraid to reach out and help someone who is struggling, or to reach out for help if you find yourself struggling. God won’t ever let you go. And He’s given you others in life to help shoulder this burden. There’s support and counsel available through many who understand or have walked this road before.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Is. 41:10) Know that you’re never alone.
He offers hope and deliverance.
“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” (Ps. 34:18-19)
Know that God loves you and is always with you. He will sustain us through our greatest burdens.
“Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.” (Ps. 55:22)
Know that He does not condemn you or accuse you. He offers freedom and peace.
“Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.” (Rom. 8:1-2)
“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4)
Remember that He has a plan for good in store
Whatever we face now, no matter how dark it may seem, will not remain the same. There’s hope still ahead.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jer. 29:11)
There is power in God’s Word, and in praying it back to Him. He reminds us that it won’t return empty, without accomplishing great things.
(Is. 55:11) Even in the deepest struggles, He is able to bring us through to other side, by His healing and strength.
