Jesus Loves You Through Difficulties

by Hazel Straub

Do your circumstances discourage you and make you want to quit? No matter the challenges you face, nothing can separate you from the love of God. Jesus loves you through all the difficulties. Believe and rely, on his everlasting love for you!

Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death?  (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.” (Ps. 44:22) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:35-39 NLT)

  4. During difficult times, hardships and illnesses we need to pray and be mindful of the fact that God knows what is best for us. ‘Thy will be done’ is what we say in the Lord’s prayer.

    • Yes, the will of our loving Father in heaven, be done on earth as it is in heaven. He knows what is best and helps us through all the difficult seasons.

  5. “Great is thy faithfulness….”

    • Yes, his faithfulness is great and he never leaves or forsakes us.

  6. Thank you for sharing Ms.Hazel. I wholeheartedly agree, no one can separate us from God’s love but ourselves, in giving up and not trusting that love in our hearts. Victory is already ours through Christ!

    • Yes, the love of God expressed through Jesus is awesome!

  10. I love this! I’ve been through a similar situation.. and I had to trust God to keep me going because I COULD NOT keep running! Thanks for your encouraging words! 🙂

    • You are welcome! The love of Jesus sustains us!

  11. So true! I am so thankful that God is always with me because otherwise I don’t think I could keep going.

    • Yes, God loves and cares for us so much! Thankful, thankful and thankful to him!

  12. This is an awesome post. I don’t know how you knew I needed this RIGHT now. Things have been super tough on every side. I am being challenged to step outside of my comfort zone. I have always been able to maneuver through my issues and situations with my own solutions. This time, it’s out of reach for me. It’s just above my abilities. So, I have had to ask for prayers, ask for advice, and ask for help. There have been two things from my struggles worthy of noting. First and foremost, someone I asked to pray for me and my family got together with some friends and blessed me with enough to pay my electric bill. I AM NOT IN THE DARK, Hallelujah! I knew Prayer was what iI needed. God hears the prayers of the righteous. I didn’t know much else… but I knew if a person is drowning they need a life preserver… I am in over my head, and need PRAYER. My little angel friend told me to keep my head up and that she was working with some friends and we would see the glory of God. As it turned out, she was disappointed because she set out to raise enough for the electric and rent, but there were some who apparently because the world we live in, has caused people to be suspicious and reluctant to help others, siting it might just be a “big scam.” Oh dear. Even that is something God is using to help me in the long run. It hurt my feelings at first… a scam? I am about to be evicted – how could that be a scam? But, then as I thought about it, there are so many crooks out there – that I realized somewhere, somehow, there has probably been a scam that burned someone. I am so grateful for the help she coordinated on my behalf, it was precious and strengthened my faith because I thought it was a done deal – no lights no home, give up. But, the lights are on. SO, God is still in the miracle business. I know that bad times don’t last forever, so at some point, when He sees fit, I will be back on my feet and able to bless others. I think the one sad part of this amazing chapter – is so that, I am ready to help others that cry for help, especially if they reach out to me, as that means they are so hurt by their own circle of family or friends, that they need the love and prayer of a stranger. That is God at work.

    • Michele, Jesus is going with you through all of the difficulties. Praise God for your electric bill being paid. Standing with you for your rent. God is supernatural and is our provider. He will never abandon you. He promises that we will not lack, Psalm 23. Jesus came to give us abundant life and he provides when we depend on him and praise him. Prayers for all your provision according to God’s promises.

      • Thank you! I am excited that God has blessed me in so many ways. I don’t always understand things, and I often get so deep in worry that I forget that He is in control. That is always when He leads my eyes to the awesome bloggers that I follow.

      • You are welcome! God loves you and leads you in good paths.

  13. Let all creation that have breath fear God and live long.

    • Jesus is always with us and accompies us through our difficulties.

  14. Your post has boost me… And permit me to add. The confidence that should carry us through any challenge is the fact that Jesus Christ has already paid the price of that challenge, we are just passing through and at the other end there is victory.

    • Praise God! Jesus walks with us and loves us through all our difficulties. The victory of Jesus, is our victory. We know that we have victory because Jesus has already won it for us and helps us. The journey has already been decided in our favor.
