Feeling Overwhelmed

I felt so overwhelm today and I went and listen to one of my favorite short devotions “Our Daily Bread” and got such a great message from it. It was just what I needed to hear. Reading from 1 Peter 4:12-13 “Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.”

As believers our first priority is to show God’s love through it all. We will suffer but know that He is right there with us in those times of suffering. And in due time it will all end. So, anticipate the time when God’s “glory is revealed” (1 Peter 4:13) for will we will also be filled with “exceeding joy.” Now, I like the sound of that!

Make sure that through it all, God gets the glory and we reflect His love to others. God has always pulled us through with His mercy and grace. May we never take our eyes off Him and His love for us. Depend on God’s grace to get you through. Pray also that you might reflect His love. Whenever life’s burdens oppress you and trials are too much to face, remember God’s strength in your weakness; He’ll give you His power and grace. — The increasing darkness of trials only makes the “lamp of grace” shine brighter.
