Depending On God In Rough Times

Today as we continue our focus on Life Can Be Tough, But God Is Good!, Frank Williams will be sharing about some tough times in his life as he speaks on “Depending On God In Rough Times”.

It’s during the tough times in life that we come to learn to depend on God and His strength to get us through. It’s during these tough times that we demonstrate how genuine our faith is.

Let’s look along with Frank at 1 Peter 1:3-9 NKJV and Phil. 4:10-13 NKJV to see what we can learn about depending on God during rough times.

  1. We have a living hope in Jesus Christ. The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead gives us hope in our lives during tough times.
  2. We all have trials or tough times that we go through.
    There are tough times that happen in our lives, but God gives us the joy of knowing that these trials are only for a little while.
  3. We demonstrate that our faith is genuine during tough times.
    When your life is in line with God’s word, it’s His word that increases your faith.
  4. We have joy in knowing that God will reward us in the end.
    The joy of the Lord is our strength during tough times. Our faith keeps us in the assurance of the joy of our salvation.
