Saddled in problems and feeling like there's no end to your sufferings? Many people are in similar situation, even Christians at some point in their lives. Before I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior, I felt exactly the same way as I was encountering troubles both in my career and personal life. But glory be to God, all changed when I was born again and started hearing and reading His Word. No, not all my problems were solved at once, but the Word filled me with hope and gave me wisdom and guidance on what to do to eventually be able to have those problems resolved.
One of those first Bible verses that I learned as a baby Christian was Romans 8:28 (And we know that in all things, God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose) and it instantly became one of my favorites. I remember watching the 700 Club Asia on TV and Pastor Peter Kairuz sharing about this beautiful verse. He said that for a person who loves and worships the Lord, all things - both the good and the bad circumstances in his life - will all end up for his benefit. What words of comfort! I cried with tears of joy as this verse touched my heart and gave me hope that all troubles I was then going through would not compare with the happiness they would result in in God's perfect timing.
Be encouraged and blessed.
