“In Trouble Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.
In the physical, it makes no sense to rejoice in times of trouble and distress. However, this verse is a helpful guide to get us through dark times and difficult hurdles, and obstacles in this life. As a believer in Christ we have hope and not just any old hope, but a confident hope, a hope which is Christ Jesus! We can confidently believe in a time when hurt, pain, and sorrow will end. It’s comforting to know amidst all of your despair and discouragement there is joy on its way. So rejoice even in the darkest and most painful of times because God is on the throne. His eyes are on you and He’ll never fail you. So even in pain trust in Him and will deliver you. Have faith, no matter how deep in the valley you may be and fix your eyes upon Him and He’ll surely aid you!
tarry in the place of prayer even through trials and tribulations. Be patient in the Lord. Be confident in knowing that He is Lord God Almighty. Rejoice in Him. Take joy in who He is and in what He stands for. Rejoice I say, Rejoice just because He is Lord.
