As we look at the final part of “Walking Through Grief”, it is a day of celebration for what the heavenly Father will accomplish in your heart, mind, and life. I believe it for you
Even if you don’t feel it right now, that’s all right because Romans 4:17 says that God calls things that are not as though they were. It is a matter of faith. Praise God!!
We are not righteous, yet he declares that we are.
We are not justified (acquitted from sin) but he says that we are.
And it is all because Christ is each of those things on our behalf. We only have to have faith and believe in him.
The same is true of your victory over grief and despair. The Lord God of heaven and earth will bring you through the waters victorious. Through him, you will not drown in your grief. He will see you through and, over time, will heal you.
Each of these passages celebrates and praises and thanks God for what he has accomplished. Write down what stands out to you from each passage.
First of all, look up Psalm 22:22-25. One day you will do this!
Next, read Psalm 30:11-12; 119:49-50 and 74 then Isaiah 71:1-3. This passage in Isaiah speaks of the coming of the Messiah. It was fulfilled in Jesus’s ministry on earth.
Finally, Let’s look at Lamentations 3:21-26 and 31-33. The book of Lamentations, traditionally attributed to Jeremiah, portrays the overwhelming sense of loss felt by the Jewish people when Babylon decimated their beloved Jerusalem and Temple, subsequently taking more of their people into captivity. It was written from a place of utter brokenness and despair. Yet in it, we still find hope. We find the goodness and faithfulness of the Lord in the midst of trouble.
Mark these verses in your Bible and refer to them often. As mentioned before, keep a journal of your journey through your pain so “future you” can see what the Lord has done. Write the scriptures on cards and post them around your house so you can see them and be constantly reminded of the truths God is teaching you from his Word.
As this Bible study devotional comes to a close, I pray that you will be strengthened through your trial and emerge victorious on the other side.
