When life gets tough, we often find ourselves on our knees. We look to scriptures on trusting God. We pray, hoping for answers. At times our prayers may even turn into pleas. With tears in our eyes sometimes we get the answers we seek. Sometimes not. What we pray for may be relief from physical pain, healing from a significant loss, or financial security. There are also those of us who struggle with jobs, addictions, and relationships. What we really want to know is that everything will be okay in the end. But every hardship would feel easier if we remembered we were on the winning side – the side of Jesus. We don't need to know the future to know we are secure. We only need to know our Savior. And what our savior has told us to trust Him. When we trust that God knows our needs and will help us when we need Him, all of the fear disappears.
