Psalm 46:1 Â”God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress.Â” Meeting TodayÂ’s Adversities With Courage ??????? WE LIVE in difficult times. The earth has been affected by one disaster after another. People have suffered terribly because of earthquakes, tsunamis, fires, floods, volcanoes, tornadoes, typhoons, and hurricanes. Also, problems in the family and personal problems have made many sad and afraid. Just as the Bible shows, bad things can happen to any of us at any time.Â—Ecclesiastes 9:11. Â ??????? When bad things happen to us, we should remember that Satan tries to use these things to weaken our faith and take away our joy. But we must not allow him to do that.Â Proverbs 24:10Â says that if we get discouraged, we will not have the energy to endure our problems. If we meditate on examples from the Bible, such as those we talked about earlier, we can get the courage we need when we have problems. ??????? It is also good to remember that we cannot remove all problems. In fact, we can expect them. (2Â Timothy 3:12)Â Acts 14:22Â tells us: Â“We must enter into the kingdom of God through many tribulations.Â” Instead of allowing problems to discourage you, think of them as opportunities to show your faith in GodÂ’s ability to help you. https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/402012764?q=ps+46%3A1&p=par Â
