I think it’s safe to say that our weather has been a little crazy this spring. We’ve seen snow, rain, hail, high winds, sunny moments, more rain, and that was just one day last week. Okay, that was a little facetious, but not by much. We have had many ups and downs meteorologically speaking, and there’s not much we can do about it. Life can be the very same way. We can have happiness, sadness, anger, uncertainty, and that can all happen on any given Monday. We have many ups and downs in our days and there’s not much we can do about it.
Matthew 5:45 reminds us "for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust." So, it’s scriptural that life is going to have its ups and downs and there’s not much we can do about it. It’s not about praying that nothing bad ever comes our way, but it is all about who we’ve put our trust in when those inevitable difficult times do come. We need to know that whether life is up or down, sunny or rainy, happy or sad, our God has got it all under control.
Hebrews 13:5 "For he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." This is the comforting part of serving Jesus Christ. No matter what we are facing, whether up or down or anything else in between, He will never leave us or forsake us. Think about this; what you are going through may be devastating, aggravating, or terrifying to you, but it doesn’t even faze Jesus. He’s not going anywhere and He’s already got the answer that you need.
Are you with the only God that can handle all the ups and downs of life?
