We are not born with wisdom or experience. Every trial and hardship is new to us and can be incredibly scary without the knowledge and guidance to get overcome it. So God gave us examples of how others have endured and learned to overcome the same type of struggles to give us encouragement and hope.
These stories, however, cannot help us if we don’t know them. When we read and study the previous examples of good versus evil, and see how God has always delivered His people, it gives us hope for our own lives. We know that He doesn’t have respect of persons. If we do what they did, then we can overcome the same type of hardship as well.
He has a solution for our every problem and comfort for our every heartache. I love reading how He has always taken care of His people. It is such a comfort to know that someone else has had my feelings, dealt with my same obstacles, and still came out of the situation victorious. Every time I open my Bible, hope and love fill my heart. Reading about God’s love for me makes me want to be a better person. It makes me want to live my life so that through me someone else might see Him.
Love and blessings,
