Tag Archive: Apostle Paul


Have you ever felt like you can’t make it through whatever situation you are facing in your life? You may feel distraught and broken, and your strength might have begun to deteriorate; however, this is the time when you will need some supernatural strength to help you make it through. You have to depend on God’s grace and mercy to help you along the way.

The Apostle Paul knew that even if he could not overcome all the obstacles and tribulations in his life, that God’s grace is sufficient to keep him. In his letter to the Corinthians, he told them, “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)

Therefore, you have to take comfort in the fact that you too can take pleasure in your troubles, as if you depend on God’s grace, and not your own strength to take you through your tribulations, you will be strong, even at your weakest moment.

Have you ever felt like you can’t make it through whatever situation you are facing in your life? You may feel distraught and broken, and your strength might have begun to deteriorate; however, this is the time when you will need some supernatural strength to help you make it through. You have to depend on God’s grace and mercy to help you along the way.

The Apostle Paul knew that even if he could not overcome all the obstacles and tribulations in his life, that God’s grace is sufficient to keep him. In his letter to the Corinthians, he told them, “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)

Therefore, you have to take comfort in the fact that you too can take pleasure in your troubles, as if you depend on God’s grace, and not your own strength to take you through your tribulations, you will be strong, even at your weakest moment.

 

It’s only when you’re tested with tribulations, you will know how true you can hold to Christ during these tough times in your life. It’s so easy to love Christ when everything is going great in your life, but can you still love Him when you lose something so precious or someone so dear to you? Can you still love Him when you are diagnosed with a sickness that left you so bent out of shape? Can you still love Him when you are persecuted, or fall into great distress? Can you still love Him when you have zero balance in your bank account? Can you still love Him when you have nothing much left to eat? The list could go on and on.

However, no matter what your situation is, God is good all the time, and if God is good all the time, even in your darkest moment, He’s still good. His goodness does not change with your situation. You have to know that all these tribulations will occur in this world, and none of us are invincible to them. No wonder the Apostle Paul asked in Romans 8:35, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril or sword? Paul knew that these things can seem unbearable to the point where you will question God’s love and commitment to you.

However, Jesus clearly stated in John 16:33, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

You will always have tribulations in this world. However, no matter what you are faced with, you can overcome it, if you put your faith and trust in Jesus, as He has already overcome the world, and everything that happens in the world.

So when you are faced with terrible situations, just know that you have a friend in Jesus who will wipe away your tears!
