Philippians 2:13
‘For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him.’

It is great to know that God is faithful. God wants to see us through whatever we may be facing. The truth is that we do face challenges and difficulties in the course of life. BUT we can rejoice to know that God wants to be with us – no matter what. The promise of God is that He will never leave us or forsake us. This is something we can depend upon at every stage of life and in the midst of the situations and circumstances we face in life. What are you facing today? What is it that feels like you need God’s help to see you through? God is there for you and He wants to see you through. 

The Bible indicates again and again that trouble is one of the aspects that we will have to contend with in life. The Bible speaks of WHEN trouble comes not IF trouble comes. We think that a trouble-free, problem-free life is the ideal life to live. We go so far as to avoid, bypass and escape trouble – but we all taste of this aspect of life.

Psalm 37:39 ‘The Lord saves the godly! He is their salvation and their refuge when trouble comes.’

The issue is that God is with us and wants to be with us as we pass through difficulties.


Usually when we are facing trouble, we know about it. Deep within us we are contending with what we are going through. The Bible speaks of this reality: 

Psalm 138:7 ‘Though I walk in the midst of trouble…’

David writes in Psalm 23:4 ‘Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,  I will fear no evil, for You are with me!’

I want to encourage those who feel like they are in the midst of some form of trouble. I want to encourage you by reminding you that you are not alone – God has not abandoned you! He will see you through. Great men and women of God faced trouble, David, Joseph, Moses, and Jesus. You are not alone – you are in good company.
