God Raised Me

Are we allowing God to lift us up past our troubles and suffering?


Psalm 146:8

We as humanity fall into trouble, fall from grace, fall out of love. But God the ever constant love and Almighty remains unchanged. God seeks to raise up that which is down. Are we allowing ourselves to be lifted up by God?

We may be put down by others’ insults. We may be stripped down of our things by robbers. Or we may be let down by people we loved with their failed promises. Yet, God can always pick us up from all our issues.

Only God has the power to raise up that which has fallen down. That which has died. God raised Jesus from the dead. How easier is it for God to raise us up from our daily struggles?

What problems are holding us down today? Can we see that God has the power and will to raise us above them? Let us pray and cling to God Almighty to raise us past our struggles and death and into communion with God in Heaven.
