In general, no one is exempt from problems. No doubt, those challenges vary in degrees of difficulty. Moreover, for some people, their problems overwhelm them to the point of hopelessness. Why? Because, when one feels as if they are always fighting battles from day to day, it can take a toll on their mind and spirit. And it is in those times of weakness that the thoughts of suicide have overtaken many. But there is another way. Hence, this episode — STRONG in the LORD: A Fight to the Finish.
Trouble won’t last always
As I mentioned above, no one is exempt from problems. In fact, Jesus of Nazareth informed us of it. So, let’s look at it in the Bible. John 16:33 New International Version says, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Equally important, a relationship with Christ Jesus guarantees that His strength is available. Hence, as a Christ-follower, I am confident that I can draw from His strength in times of weakness. Philippians 4:13 New King James Version says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
You see, in my experience, it is only then that I am able to be strong in the Lord and fight to the finish.

Receive your Free Gift of Salvation – The Gospel of Jesus Christ
If you are reading this, it is not by chance. This is your time to receive the gift of salvation through Christ Jesus. Now, you may be wondering, “Why do I need that?” Oh, I’m so glad you asked. The Bible says, that because Adam ate fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil — he released sin into the world.
And ultimately, Adam’s sin brought death and death spread to everyone. No doubt, you may be thinking, “Of course, everyone is going to die.” But, my question to you is “Where will you spend eternity?” Because there is life after death. In fact, when you die you go to one of two places — heaven or hell.
Also, it is important to understand that, Adam’s sin also brought an eternity in hell. But for those who choose not to receive the free gift of eternal life. Thus, you must make that choice before you take your last breath.
Romans 5:17 New Living Translation says, “For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ.”
To sum it all up, Romans 6:23 New Living Translation says,
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.”
So, if you are reading this, don’t let another day go by without receiving this life-changing gift.
“8 …“The message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart.” And that message is the very message about faith that we preach:
9 If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.”
Lord Jesus, I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins. I ask You to forgive me. I want to follow You Jesus. Come into my heart, into my life, and be my Lord and Savior. I believe in my heart that God raised you from the dead. By faith, I receive You, Jesus Christ, as my Lord and Savior.
