We can learn a lot from the way Jesus handled situations while He was on earth. In one of Jesus’ toughest moments, He turned to His Father for strength. Today’s verse says that He began to “pray more earnestly.” “Earnestly” means with serious intention and purpose.
In difficult circumstances, we can learn from Luke 22:42-44:
We must each remember the words from Proverbs 3:5 NIV: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” We may not understand why we are facing certain trials, but we can walk by faith and pray boldly just as Jesus did.
God is the God of hope. He is the God of peace, strength, comfort, and love. We are encouraged, knowing that He provides all we need to get through any situation.
Thank God for being the strength you can rely on.
Turn to God first for comfort as you face any trials today.
