There are situations we face that are severely tragic to us. It may seem minor to someone else, but it’s tragic to us. We may experience a sudden death of a loved one, we may have a debilitating disease, or we may continuously have financial struggles we can’t seem to overcome.

The devil replays our situation(s) over and over in our minds until it seems hopeless and life is not worth living. It’s a lie. Whatever we’re going through, it’s not that bad. If we’re still alive, there’s hope.

Our hope is rested in God through Jesus Christ. When we trust and totally rely on God instead of trying to figure out how we, alone, will overcome this situation, things begin to look a little brighter. We begin to have hope. The pain of a loved one’s death becomes manageable (Hebrews 9:14). We begin to realize Jesus was whipped so that we can be healed of that debilitating disease (Isaiah 53:5). We receive revelation that God is our Provider and we will always have enough (Philippians 4:19).

Whatever the situations is, realize, it’s not that bad. Let’s place our hope, trust, and confidence in God.

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he cares for you.
