Reading: Hebrews 13: 1-19
It's always tough to deal with circumstances in life that are trying. They consume our lives and are often the only thing we can think of. When bad things happen in our life, we want to try and make it better quickly. But that is not often how it happens. May times, we have to wait awhile until the problem is solved.
Sometimes we may feel that we are alone in a situation. We may feel like we are fighting alone and have no one on "our team." But as this passage tells us, God is with us and will not desert us. We are never alone. And, especially in some very difficult situations, we must remember that we may have to accept what has happened and move on, knowing that God will punish those who do not adhere to God's Word.
Isn't it comforting to also know that God never changes? God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. We are the ones that change. We should look to God in tough times for strength. I know there are times when I have turned to friends and relatives to help me get through tough situations. It is good to have people here on earth that we can turn to and share our problems with. But, I also know that I have turned to God to help me through things, too. God is always there for us.
When you face adversity or a crisis in your life, turn to God and know that God is concerned for you. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
