God doesn’t always remove all our problems, when we accept Him as our Savior. But He has promised to be with us and help us in the midst of our problems.
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27
We can experience this kind of peace knowing that with Christ we are never alone. He loves us and is with us.
This peace is possible because the Holy Spirit gives us joy even in the midst of our problems. Our problems are only temporary. Someday they will all come to an end.
It’s much better to face our problems with the Lord than to face them without Him.
“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4: 6-7
