3 Things to Do During Tough Times


Instead of cursing 2020, here are three things you can do to get better results.

1. Hold onto your faith.

Do not lose the hope you once had before tribulations came. Even though your circumstances have changed, God didn't change. He is the same as He was before you experienced inconvenient changes in your life. He will be the same when your tribulations are over. Therefore, you might as well start rejoicing now.

2. Remember God's track record.

David encouraged himself in the Lord when he faced adversity. He remembered that with God's help, he had conquered a bear, a lion, and an uncircumcised Philistine named Goliath. Since God brought him out of those circumstances, David knew that God would not leave him helpless and hopeless.

During your current situation, remember what God had done for you in the past. Know that He is still working on your behalf.


3. Know that you have a safe haven.

People attributed all of the psalms to David. He did write 73 of them, more than any of the other psalmists. Moses wrote only one of the hymns, and it was Psalm 91. In that particular psalm, Moses specifically said:

"Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,my God, in whom I trust." (Psalm 91:1-2)

In just two verses, Moses lets us know that as long as we are in the shelter of the Most High, we can confidently say, God is our refuge and fortress, and we can trust Him. Throughout the remainder of that psalm, the psalmist assures us that God is protecting us even when we think He is not. Moses says In Verse 7:

"A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you."

In Verses 14-17, Moses says:

“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life, I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

There is no need to curse this year or any year. There is no need to want the year to be over. There is no need to rush into next year before this year is over. God is here right now in this year. He is our hope, and hope does not disappoint.
