In my reading this morning I came across this thought:   “What to do when you are…” 

There are bible verses to help us know what to do or better still what God can do to help us as we go through difficult times in our lives.
Some of the thoughts were:   What to do when we are afraid, when we need courage to face life…  What to do when we need patience… What to do when we need peace in our lives… What to do when I am experiencing grief, or doubt, or trouble… I will try to help answer some of these questions with bible verses in the next weeks of my mid week message.  Today let’s look at “What to do when trouble comes in our lives. “ 

We all need help with this because we know sooner or later we will face trouble. The best thing to remember when we face trouble is to know that God knows what we are going through and he is there with us and for us.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9 says:  “We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed.  We are perplexed, but not driven to despair.  We are hunted down, but never abandoned by god.  We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.“ How can we experience this?  Trust God to get us through.

In the little book of Nahun it says in 1:7 “The Lord is good,  a strong refuge when trouble comes.  He is close to those who trust in him.”

Don’t let trouble in our lives get the best of us.  God is with us and with his help we can get through anything when we trust him.

God bless and “keep spurring.”
