Life isn’t always easy. In fact I heard it once said that in our Christian lives, one can be sure to find themselves at any point and given time in one of three states: you are about to enter into a battle, you are in a battle or you are coming out of a battle.
I have come to find that sometimes I am coming out of one battle whilst in the middle of another and also entering yet another one. We can get a bit of battle fatigue from time to time but God says, “I carry you”. I carry you when you are weak, I carry you when you are tired. I carry you when you feel like giving up, I carry you.
Just like you, I have good days and bad days. However, sometimes I do not even notice how bad a day is until I look back on it much later and realise that wow, that was a bad day. So how do we make it through such days? God carries us. One thing God spoke to me about last year is that the reason why in the Lord’s Prayer we ask for “daily bread” is because we get daily provision from God. That is not just a word to carry you through the day, it is also grace and strength for that day.
Have you ever dreaded a situation or something that was inevitable and coming and on that day you found that it was not as bad as you thought? Sometimes it can even be worse than you thought but somehow you make it through those days right? Gods grace is sufficient for us. Each day He knows how much we can handle. He knows when to pick us up and when to put us down. He knows when to carry us and when to let us walk.
We need to trust God to ask Him to carry us when we feel overwhelmed. Sometimes we want to go to bed at night and not wake up until whatever it is we are facing is gone but that is not how it works. God takes us through tough situations but He always brings us out even if He has to carry us the whole way. You are not too heavy for God. Your problems are not too much for Him. He is the Creator of the universe and He can handle you. Allow God to carry you and one day you will turn around and look at your life in amazement thinking, “How did I make it through that?” I hope that you will know then that it is God who carries you.
I will leave you with this verse, Deuteronomy 1:30-31:
“The Lord your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes, and in the wilderness. There you saw how the Lord your God carried you, as a father carries his son, all the way you went until you reached this place”.
Have a blessed day.
