There are times in everyone’s life when the smooth-sailing ship comes into rough waters, and it looks like there is no hope of a way out. In fact, Jesus Himself warned us that life would not be easy, and we could expect to encounter all kinds of trouble and distress during our lifetimes. Paul also instructs Christians to be patient in affliction. This is often easier said than done, especially when we try to navigate the troubling times on our own.
As followers of Jesus, we have been give a promise that He will never leave us or forsake us. Therefore, no matter how difficult life’s circumstances become, we can still have hope because we know we are never alone. We also have hope in the gift of the Holy Spirit, who is our comforter in times of grief, and gives us peace in times of trouble.
