How Can I Cope with Life?
Jesus lived, suffered and died so that you can cope with life’s trials successfully. He declared, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). Therefore, don’t lose hope. Just because you don’t see a way that does not mean there is no way.
“The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season” (Deuteronomy 28:12). God can turn all situations for your good. For “all things work together for good to them that love God” (Romans 8:28). Therefore, give your life to the Lord and allow Him to bless you.
How Can I Give My Life to the Lord?
Giving the life to the Lord means inviting Jesus to be your Lord and have a daily relationship with Him through the study of the scriptures, prayer and obedience. As you do, the Lord will guide you. For He promised, “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go” (Psalms 32:8). You will have peace and rest because you are no longer alone. Jesus said, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
The secret of successfully coping with life’s hardships is in your connection with the Lord (John 12:46). As you remain connected to Him daily, the divine power will change you and your circumstances. So, keep your eyes on your Heavenly Father and not on your own problems. God declared, “Look unto me, and be ye saved” (Isaiah 45:22). The Word of God is life. So, get into the word and feed on it. It will heal you. “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions” (Psalms 107:20).
Like the branch, when it is connected to the tree, it produces much fruit (John 15:5), stay connected to God daily to prosper. If that branch is cut, then it will no longer bring fruit and it will wither away (John 15:6). And believe God’s promise that says, “whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive” (Matthew 21:22). If you lack, power, wisdom and grace, just ask and believe that God will give it to you, when you most need it.
You have tried many unsuccessful paths. Now it’s time to try God. Millions testify that the Lord brought them out of hopelessness. Therefore, allow Him to fulfill your dreams. He is “able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20).
You may pray this prayer: Heavenly Father, come into my heart and be my Lord and savior. Show me your path when I study Your word and help me walk in it. In Jesus’ name I ask. Amen.
In His service,
