When pain and sorrow strike, which they will (it’s only a matter of time), we need to rely on Jesus to bring us through. He’s promised that He will always sustain us (Psalm 23:4; John 14:18; 2 Corinthians 1:3-5; 2 Thessalonians 2:16). He, unlike many of us, keeps His word.
But we shouldn’t just call on Him when life overwhelms us. We need to cultivate a relationship with Him; we need to modify our way of living so that He is always in our thoughts and our minds. He will always be with us to comfort us in times of trouble, but He will also guide us in every situation – if we let Him.
