Christians are not exempt from the many storms of life. But as the Apostle Paul said in Cor. 4:8-9, “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.”

God’s grace is sufficient and in our weakness, we are made strong. God is greater than all our problems, great or small. Therefore, rest in Him.
