August 28 - We Triumph

By Debbie Russell

Today's Scripture: 2 Corinthians 2:14

Central Thought: Life can bring hard trials, but if we trust in God He will bring us through to victory.

    The longer you have lived, the more likely you are to understand that life is not free from problems, not even for those who have committed their lives as followers of Christ. It is wonderful to know that we do not have to face problems and trails alone. We can reach out to Christ with the assurance that He will lead us through to triumph.

    Psalm 9:9 tells us that the Lord is a very present help in the time of trouble. Not only do we have hope—our hope is in God. He loves us and is always mindful of every trial we face. Nothing is too hard for him. Trust Him and He will bring you through to victory.

Devotional Prayer: Lord, life sometimes brings such hard things. Thank You for always being with me. My hope is in You, and I know You are on my side helping me to always triumph in Christ Jesus.
