I hope that you had a great weekend and I hope that tomorrow when you wake up you are able to say, “This is a good day.” I have found that some days those words roll easily off of the tongue and yet other days, those words can be difficult to imagine much less say. On such days, I am reminded of what Paul said in Philippians 4:12 – 13.
Philippians 4:12 I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. 13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
Paul acknowledged that not every day and every season of our lives are easy. Yet, even in the midst of difficult days, tough times and seasons of sorrow, we can still make it through. We can make it through because Christ, our Savior will strengthen us. He who promised to “never leave us nor forsake us” will be with us in the good times and the bad. He truly is an “ever present help in the times of trouble.” Christ is ready to strengthen us, comfort us, provide for us and help us to say, “This is a good day.”
