Don’t give in to struggle…

When distraught, when the feeling of oppression overwhelms us, it is normal to focus our attention on all that assails us. Be it financial pressures, a wayward child, or sickness, it is natural to become focused on our troubles.

Don’t give in.

In the Psalms we read a great series of complaints brought to the Lord.

“But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love your salvation say continually, “Great is the Lord!” As for me, I am poor and needy, but the Lord takes thought for me. You are my help and my deliverer; do not delay, O my God!” (Psalm‬ ‭40:16-17‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

When the woman touched the hem of Jesus’ garment, he told her that her faith had healed her.

She turned to Jesus, went to where he was, reached out to him.

Don’t give in to struggle, turn to God who is our true source of strength.
