Frustration, aggravation, misery, defeat; there are so many circumstances that drive us to seek comfort in the ways of this world. We crawl into a bottle, we light up a cigarette, we think the sexual attention of another person will make it all better; all the while rationalizing our behaviors according to the norms we see around us. Yet it is only God’s unfailing love for us that guides us through the tough times. It is in being in Jesus that we press through adversity and grow as His followers.
“Instead, clothe yourself with the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. And don’t let yourself think about ways to indulge your evil desires.” – Romans 13:14 NLT
