We are living on sinful earth where we are to face troubles and hardships. But we should remember that our God is with us and he is able to strengthen us in our weaknesses. Though we are weak in our abilities and strength still we have a hope to overcome all kinds of troubles by the grace of God.
Life without God’s direction will be miserable and we will very soon give up hope. And we will start to live a life of anxiety and worry. The Lord says he will show us his strength in our weakness. The scripture says that the Lord is faithful and we shall be saved by him alone.

The word of God helps us to know our weaknesses and it also makes us wise to rely on God’s strength. We cannot solve our problem and it would be best for all of us to trust the Lord with all our hearts. As we are strangers on this planet and everything is unknown to us, we do not know what waits ahead of us.
As the Lord is omniscient and holds our future so we must accept his will in our lives to get rid of our troubles.
In times of weakness and trials, we should read the scripture that will lead us to be patient and to seek the face of the Lord. Instead of listening to others, we must listen to what God says us to do in such difficult times.
He will never leave us in our weakness rather he will make the way when there seems to be no way. He is such a God who is able to redeem us from our weakness and give us a life of peace and joy.
