Ever get in a funk and wonder when it will be over?
Think: this too shall pass!
Know someone that can’t shake the blues?
Remind them that: this too shall pass.
I have heard it said God gives the hardest battles to His strongest soldiers. Not quite sure I fully agree with that but I do know whatever you are going through it will pass.
This simple statement uttered can remind whomever is saying it that whatever you are going through an end will come to it.
In the meantime, no matter what you might be dealing with here’s some sound advice directly from the scripture: give your problems to God (“For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.” Deuteronomy 20.4); keep your eye on the prize (“…Forget what is behind and strain toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14 NIV); and know this earth needs to pass away before a new heaven and earth are formed for us to dwell in for eternity (“Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away…”. Revelation 21:1 ).
Remember this also:
“…that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8.28
“He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might He increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40.29-31
And remember above all else:
You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. (Philippians 4.6)
And when you do, you will…
even in the midst of something that needs to pass.
Chin up, soldier, God has got you!
don’t forget to pray and give it to Him.
When feeling the spirit of heaviness put on the garment of praise (Isaiah 61.3) and let God fight your battle.
Be confident in this, you are surrounded by His love. Tap into it knowing whatever it is you are going through; this too shall pass.
