Life can feel, even be, very heavy at times. There are times when we beg God to change our circumstances, and sometimes He does not. Yet, we know that in an instant He can take our pain away. He can change our circumstances. It’s in the times of suffering and never ending battles, that we must continue to seek and reach out to God. Though we may be in chains, submerged in darkness, He is still there shining His light upon us. May we fearlessly declare His goodness even in the hard times.
When I was reading Ephesians 6:20, the words “ambassador in chains” struck me visually. I saw this image of an arm in chains, reaching for God.
In the hard times of our lives we gotta keep reaching for God and our faith. Our suffering may be great, but our God is greater. No matter what battles and challenges we face, we must remind ourselves and others, that God is there with us.
