Have you ever been in trouble?
Have you ever found yourself in a really tough and difficult situation? I’m sure we all have.
And so did a lot of the great men and women of God in the Bible, Paul in second Corinthians chapter one verse five said for, as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings.
So through Christ, we share abundantly in comfort too.
If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation.
And if we are comforted, it is for your comfort which you experience when you patiently endure the same sufferings that we suffer.
Our hope for you is unshaken for.
We know that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in our comfort for.
We do not want to be unaware, brothers of the affliction we experienced in Asia.
For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself.
Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death, but that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead, he delivered us from such a deadly peril and He will deliver us on Him.
We have set our hope that he will deliver us again.
While in Asia, Paul states that he had experienced affliction, he experienced severe trials and he says he was burdened beyond strength, so much so that he despaired of life itself.
He said it felt as though he had received a death sentence. Can you imagine that?
Can you imagine going through hardships that make you feel as though you have a death sentence written against your name?
Can you imagine being burdened by problems? This is how Paul felt.
But if you pay attention to what he says in verse nine, Paul says, indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death, but that was to make us rely not on ourselves, but on God who raises the dead.
He’s essentially saying these difficult times, these tough times have taught us to lose all faith in ourselves and to place all of our trust in the God who raises the dead.
All of us go through tough times, all of us go through seasons where it seems as though the odds are stacked against us and pain becomes a feeling we’re all too acquainted with.
In Psalms 1 19 verse 71 David said it is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I may learn your statutes.
And I’ve always asked the question, how can it be good for you to be afflicted?
How is there any good for you to go through pain, tribulation and hard times, but here’s the thing, afflictions, tough situations do more than simply show what kind of character we have.
Tough times, shape and form out character.
Now, I believe that affliction, although unpleasant is necessary for the Christian man or woman, because if it were not for the struggle you’re going through, how would you know that God will never leave you nor forsake you?
If it were not for the affliction in your body, how else would you know that by His stripes, we are healed?
If it were not for the financial challenges you faced, how would you have known that the Lord is a provider?
Problems can sometimes be a blessing saints of God, so be encouraged regardless of what you’re facing.
Now, let us pray, Lord Jesus, you are worthy to receive all of my praise and adoration.
If troubles weigh us down your mercy, your grace will lift us up.
Although the hardships of life may push us to our limits by your mercy and by your grace, Lord, we will overcome father.
The situations we face at times may be tragic and heartbreaking.
But we look to you, Lord, by your mercy and by your grace, we are more than conquerors.
May your divine will be accomplished in my life.
If the trial I face is meant to shape me and mold me in a way that is more pleasing to you, then may your will be done.
If the trial I face is meant to build my faith and build my character.
Then may your will be done.
Lord, if the trial I face is meant to train me to become more patient, more prayerful, more grateful, then may your will be done, father?
Whatever your will is for allowing me to face difficulty.
May you achieve within me that which you have set out to achieve, transform me, renew me, teach me whatever the objective is, I surrender to you.
Lord Jesus Psalms one oh two, verse one and two, say, hear my prayer.
Oh Lord, let my cry come to you.
Do not hide your face from me in the day of my distress, incline your ear to me.
Answer me speedily in the day when I call Lord hear our cry.
When we encounter difficulty, when we’re caught in trouble, deliver us and be our help your word in James chapter one verse 2 to 4 says, count it all joy, my brothers.
When you meet trials of various kinds for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness and let steadfastness have its full effect that you may be perfect and complete lacking in nothing.
Father, if I am to face difficult times, if I am to endure tough times, may it all be for your glory?
I pray that you would use any difficult challenges to build my character, use those afflictions to strengthen my faith law, help me to understand that sometimes you may allow afflictions into my life so that I may grow spiritually so that I may learn to pray with more intensity.
Lord, I understand that you are more concerned about my character than my comfort levels.
You care more about my growth as a believer than the number of blessings I receive. You.
Lord are more concerned with the state of my heart than the level of my comfort.
First Peter chapter one verse 6 to 7 says in this you rejoice though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials so that the tested genuineness of your faith more precious than gold that perishes.
Though it’s tested by fire may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ Lorne.
As I face various trials may the result be that I will trust you more.
May the result of my trials be that I have stronger faith.
I pray that every affliction would lead me to spiritual maturity.
I pray that every affliction will leave me with a desire to really connect with you Lord Jesus because I know that I cannot go through this life with my own strength.
Lord, your word tells me that many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
And so I look to you as my rescue father when you allow me to go through tough times when you allow me to face certain obstacles.
I will hold on to your word, your word that says in Psalm chapter 34 verse 15 to 18, the eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous and his ears toward their cry.
The face of the Lord is against those who do evil to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
I bless your holy name and I thank you for hearing my prayer.
Lord Jesus be glorified now and forever more in Jesus name.
I pray amen.
