Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. James 5:13 (NIV)
How amazing is it that God hears us each time we talk to Him? There isn’t a thought that goes through our minds or a word spoken from our lips that escapes Him.
Jesus tells us that in this world we will have trouble. (John 16:33) That the thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy. (John 10:10) Hearing this should serve as a warning to get prepared, not to scare us. If we were all alone, that would be scary, but we aren’t and these verses don’t end here. When you continue reading John 16:33, we learn that we can take heart because Jesus has overcome the world. And in John 10:10 there may be a thief in our lives, but we can be confident that Jesus has come so that we may have a full life (not a fearful one).
Thankfully, we don’t have to worry or fear. We have a faithful God who provides us with a way out. (1 Corinthians 10:13) We can cast our burdens on the Lord, and he will take care of us. (Psalm 55:22, 1 Peter 5:7)
In this Online Bible Studies group, we pray. We pray when there is trouble, we pray when we celebrate blessings. And we consider it an honor.
How can we pray for you today? Do you have troubles? Are you celebrating blessings?
Let’s join together, virtually hand in hand, and lift up each other to the Mighty One who loves and cares about each and every detail of our lives!
Here’s my request:
