Life’s not easy. Whether it is now, it has been in the past, or will be in the future, there will be times that we feel that our struggles are overwhelming. Maybe even that it’s too hard and we just want to give up.
Maybe our circumstances are not what we want them to be, we get confused, disappointed (both in others and in ourselves). It becomes hard to imagine that things are going to get better.
Jesus’s disciples knew what this was like, and Jesus knew what they were thinking, and he said ‘believe in me’. He said, trust me, when all hope looks like it has gone, when you feel like your faith is slipping away, he said keep on believing.
Believe in me he says, I am the creator god, nothing is too hard for me.
Believe in me, he says, I’m absolutely trust worthy.
Believe in me, because through me you can find life, you can be connected to the life giving source of God himself.
Believe in me, because I have gone and prepared the way so that you can have that relationship with God.
Believe in me, there are many rooms in heaven and there is a place for you.
Believe in me, I will never leave you or reject you
Believe in me, I have triumphed I have defeated death, and I will come back for you so that where I am you will be.
When life gets too hard, Jesus says believe in me. He will not let you down, he will not reject you, and he has said that he wants you to be with him, and he wants to be with you.
Trust him and the only way you will learn to trust him, is to trust him. Talk to him today tell him your fears, tell him your concerns lay them out before him, and spend time reading his Word.
Start at John 14.1-3 and no that he says don’t worry, believe in me
