When the going gets tough, the tough get going. A phrase heard and frequently used when dealing with hard situations, but still one of little hope because it can only go as far as humanly possible. However, as children of God, we have a strength, confidence, and assurance that goes beyond ourselves.
So the LORD gave Israel all the land He had sworn to give their fathers, and they took possession of it and settled there. The LORD gave them rest on every side according to all He had sworn to their fathers. None of their enemies were able to stand against them, for the LORD handed over all their enemies to them. None of the good promises the LORD had made to the house of Israel failed. Everything was fulfilled. Joshua 21:43-45
For every one of God’s promises is “Yes” in Him. Therefore, the “Amen” is also spoken through Him by us for God’s glory. Now it is God who strengthens us, with you, in Christ and has anointed us. He has also sealed us and given us the Spirit as a down payment in our hearts. 2 Corinthians 1:20-22
When things seem to hard to handle, remember God’s promises will always be fulfilled. You have been sealed, and He will strengthen you and give you rest.
