Do you know/remember that song? Trouble Don’t Last Always??That is one of my FAVORITES!!
“Weeping may endure for a night. Keep the faith. It will be alright. Trouble don’t last always!”
There have been times in the midst of difficulty that this song reminded me quickly of God’s truth to His children … only He allows trouble … and only He will bring me out. Did you get that?? He WILL bring me out.
It is not an easy thing to go through trials. In fact – some of the things that we have to face on this earth can cause even the most faithful person to lose heart. As an heir with Christ, however, we are assured that though our troubles may be many and various – we ARE victorious.
The enemy would love for us to fall for the mind game he plays with us – that God has forgotten us; that God is not aware of our struggles; that God is manipulating us and enjoying watching us suffer. But we know that this is not the way of our God and King! It is His will that His children — those who love Him; those who He has called; those who He has justified; those who have received the gift of salvation — live abundant lives. Not lives free of trouble — but lives in which the trouble brings about change, victory and His perfect will.
This thing that you are facing — the Lord might have put you in the middle of it! He won’t give you more than you can bear even though it might seem like you can’t take anymore. He has not forgotten you. He knows you and loves you. He will restore your life if you will only trust, believe, and obey.
Of course … I’ve got another favorite song. Victory by Brenda Waters.
“I don’t know how God’s gonna do it. I don’t know when He’s gonna fix it. I only know, God’s gonna make a way for me. I know He’s gonna do it. Victory!”
Well …. just in case you wanna hear them both
