There is a call to be empowered, a call to strengthen oneself in the Lord, a call to stand up strong and healed.
"Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed." Hebrews 12 :12-13 (NKJV)
Our soul might be in a condition which is bruised, broken and shattered for the darts of the devil might have stricken against it often, however one thing that we should remember always is that God is in control, howsoever might be the perilous situation, none is beyond the control and power of the Lord God.
God is all powerful, all able and always desiring to help us and pull us out of the miry clay and depression.
The Chapter 12 of Hebrews also starts with a blessed encouragement...
"Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us," Hebrews 12 :1 (NKJV)
We have so many witnesses of God's faithfulness and love, be it our own life experiences or people whom we know, or the wonderful experiences as mentioned in the blessed Word of God.
For ex:- Joseph in the Old Testament was someone who was rejected by all, landed up in every trouble without a cause, yet trusted and loved the Lord, the devil had shot enough darts upon his life to break him down, yet he trusted the Lord and in His time the Lord lifted him up and blessed Joseph.
Similar could be our situation also, however what is required is faithful endurance and perseverance, for God is truly in control and He will bring forth His blessedness in His right time.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
