Shall Tribulation

text size A A A

A new year has begun with all of its unknowns. However, we know who love us and who cares for us. We thank our God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ for His wonderful mercies in 2014. My family and I saw God’s workings in every aspect of our lives.

 Many started 2014 and did not see it finished. Some started 2014 enthusiastically, and as the year unfolded so did their hopes and dreams. Some others fervently pursued their goals when suddenly they were blindsided by sickness, or by some sort of tragedy. How will we face this year ahead of us?

 God loves us.  We know He does. Is God with us in the difficult times? Does this God of the Bible really care for us? Yes He is! Yes He does! The Word of God tells us in John’s Gospel Chapter 3 verse 16: “That God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…….” God created us, He loves and cares for us. He sacrificially gave His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to come in human form and die on a cross outside the city of Jerusalem over two thousand years ago. The Lord Jesus died the sinner’s death (that includes all of us), so the human raceindividually can believe and accept His death as payment for our redemption to His Holy Father and Himself.

 Jesus is alive today- raised by His Father – and seated at His right hand. Hebrews 1:3 The Lord Jesus died for us. He lives for us and He does care for us. He is our Advocate, our Mediator and our High Priest. Our Lord Jesus advocates on our behalf in the work place, in our families and in all other circumstances of life. He is the Mediator of the New Covenant – between God and the human race. Hebrews 9:13-15. He intercedes for us to the Father, and He is able to sympathize with us in our weaknesses. Hebrew 4:15. The Lord Jesus Christ intercedes daily for us regarding our daily transgressions. He ever lives to make intercession for the transgressors. Hebrews 7:25

 Our Lord Jesus is interested in us, and He cares about every detail of our lives. “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28 How do we know? We know that Jesus has promised that He will never leave us nor forsake us. Hebrews 13:5. Our Savior said that we will have tribulation in this world, but He told us to “be of good cheer, I have overcome the world”. John’s Gospel 16:33

 After going through all that the Lord Jesus did, from entering Mary’s womb to His crucifixion, His death, His resurrection and His ascension. I know that He will work every circumstance in our lives to our good and His glory.

  Who then, or what can separate us from the love of Christ?
