C.H. Spurgeon, a highly influential 19th century preacher once said, “To trust God in the light is nothing, but trust Him in the dark – that is faith.” When life gets hard, we sometimes forget that God is right there, listening to us and addressing our needs. Our circumstances can cause us to drift away from God and not trust that His plan is right for us. But God knows and understands the hopes and fears we keep in our hearts. In fact, He’s the best listener. Even when we don’t shout or cry out loud, He hears even our silent prayers. It’s important that we trust Him, especially during our darkest hours. Here are seven things God wants you to remember when life gets hard. Remember these things when you’re feeling lost and alone for He knows exactly where you are and has a good plan for your life.
