Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

Temptation, trials and suffering – we’ve all experienced them! Even as Messianic believers (sometimes, specifically because we are believers), we must endure pain, whether through loss, bankruptcy, unemployment or broken relationships!

While no one is immune to hard times, believers are empowered through the Holy Spirit to endure them. Our verse today tells us to “be still” and know who GOD is! This indicates that our best response to disappointment is to trust in the LORD! When troubles come (and they will come), it’s real easy to get caught up in our emotions, but we need to be wise in the Word of GOD and learn to be still and wait on the One who can work it all out for our good (Rom. 8:28), check it out.

{Psalm 46:10 Be still and know that I am God and I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth… }

While on this earth, troubles won’t ever vanish (John 16:33). But, when storms are brewing on the horizon, buckle up and trust GOD to guide you through!
