Why Run to God


What do you do when troubles come your way?

Many people become angry–they grow bitter towards their situation and blame God for allowing such a horrible thing to happen.

Other people become sad–they cry and can’t understand why God would allow His children to feel pain.

While these emotions are natural, both cut us off from God. They turn us inward and keep us focused on our own feelings and situations and hardships.

But in John 16:33 Jesus says, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

God understands that troubles are a part of living in a broken world. But he doesn’t want you to dwell on them–he wants you to run to Him and keep your eyes on Him! Why? Because He has already overcome the world.

What hardships do you need to place in God’s hands this morning? Leave your prayer requests in a comment below.
