God has given us his Truth to transform us and He has given us His Holy Spirit to empower us.
When you are suffering in your struggle, "consider Jesus who endured such opposition. When you are growing weary, remember Jesus. When you want to give up, remember the cross.
Just because you may be suffering or struggling it does not mean God has forsaken you. Remember it was in a Roman dungeon that Paul said, "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."
If you are struggling with following God’s will for your life, follow the example of Jesus (Matthew 26:39). Submission to God's will and plan for our lives, even when it may be difficult, brings us joy and peace.
Jesus' sacrifice of love covers our sins and connects us to God. Sin infects our lives, but Jesus perfects our lives.
Reflect or meet with someone to discuss:
Do you feel like you are going through a struggle right now? How so?
How is this struggle causing you to take your eyes off Jesus?
When is it hard for you to follow the will of God for your life?
How does the example of Jesus encourage you to follow God's will?
