“This God—his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.”
Psalms 18:30 ESV
What do we do when we face hardships? What do we do when trials arise in our lives? I don’t know about you but very often when problems come in my life I do my very best to solve those problems by my own strength. I try to overcome adversity and face life head on by my own power. Very rarely does this ever work. Usually I fall into a sense of despair as my problems get bigger because I’m weak. I can’t possibly overcome these trials because I’m trying to do it on my own. God is there ready and waiting to step in and take the weight off of my shoulders; all I have to do is ask. He is my place of refuge; he can and does overcome these problems in my life—if I just put my full trust in Him.
How do you face adversity? Do you try to carry the burden on your own? Or do you put your trust in Jesus and let Him carry you through?
