Never forget that the risen Lord promised to be with us always. He is with us in all circumstances and amongst all challenges.
Risen and almighty, he promised to never leave, or forsake us.
 
The same Jesus who rose from the dead as our King and the Lord of all, worked as a carpenter and provided for his mother and siblings, ministered to many from town to town and was willing to give his life and become our Passover Lamb. He, who shared our daily experiences on earth, and his suffering till death, assures us of his help and understanding, whatever difficulty may challenge us.
 
And his resurrection assures us that nothing is impossible with him. Jesus wants to help us and be with us in every circumstance, good and bad, joyful and terrifying.
 
Have you seen people with resurrection faith tackle their problems?
They know that God loves them. They act in faith. And faith keeps them going and gives them hope. They know that God will lead them - through life and even through the valley of the shadow of death.
 
Have you seen people without resurrection faith tackle their difficulties? At best they are without joy or hope, and at worst they are despondent and desperate.
What will be, will be” may rationalise their dilemmas, but it does not heal wounds or inspire meaning and strength!
 
Our help comes from the Lord who came to us as a man, a Saviour and the Redeemer!
He will never leave us, nor forsake us!
And to him has been given all power in heaven and earth.
Hallelujah!   He is alive!
