Jesus Will Carry You

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:13 NKJV

Some days are just tough. Some weeks are just tough. Some seasons are just tough. God knows and sees your struggles. And He is here to help you.

God doesn’t promise an easy road. In fact, Jesus said, “You will have suffering in this world” (John 16:33). Struggles are a part of life and a part of living in a fallen world. And while they are tough, God has a purpose for each one of them.

Jesus went before us on all our struggles. He knows deeply and intimately the hurt and pain you face today. His compassion and grace pour out into your life. His presence is close. The Bible says, “The Lord is near the brokenhearted; He saves those crushed in spirit” (Psalm 34:18).

Call upon the Lord today in your struggles and in your time of need. He will give you the strength to carry through, one moment at a time. You may need to say this verse many time during the day–I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I have done this many times. And it helps me each time I say it. It gets me to stop focusing on my troubles and instead focus on the strength of Jesus. Getting our eyes off our problems and onto the One who cares for us will give us the peace to overcome.
