I think about the Israelites and their 40 years wandering in the desert because of grumbling and complaining...or Ezekiel having to lie on his side for 430 days with ropes securing him....and then we don't even want to talk about the food he had to eat or how it was prepared just to reveal God's coming judgment upon Israel... or even Jesus' short time facing the cross so that we could experience life abundantly through Him for all eternity. That had to be a really hard season for all of them. Whether long or short sometimes there are seasons that are just hard to get through...but we do because He carries us through. Isaiah 46:4 says, "Even to your old age I will be the same, And even to your graying years I will bear you! I have done it, and I will carry you; And I will bear you and I will deliver you."
Those seasons of our life where we just can't do it...when we just can't pick up our feet and walk... Those seasons of our life where we just want to curl up into a fetal position on the floor with our thumb in our mouths and our eyes closed to anything else that could occur... Yes those seasons...He PROMISES to carry us through. He loves us. He created us...and He loves us more than we can even imagine. Can I tell you...if you're facing a season...a hard season right now, know that He loves you, and He WILL carry you through this!
