What Do You Say to a Christian That is Struggling

The Christian life is difficult sometimes, isn't it? God asks us to leave behind our selfishness and devote ourselves to Jesus Christ and to the service of others. This journey has a clear beginning and an even clearer end, but its path is littered with dangerous obstructions and curves. Thankfully, its destination provides lasting, eternal rewards. Chances are you have experienced the difficulty of losing your way on the journey. We've all been tempted to stray, to step away from the fundamentals of Christian living toward the more immediate fulfillments we desire for ourselves. But God calls us to a life devoted to studying the Scriptures, to prayer, and most important, to knowing Christ Himself.

Hold on never give up

Remind them of who they are in Christ Jesus, tell them God loves them and I do too. Lean on the body of Christ in the mist of your struggle, where you are weak others around you are strong, even Jesus said he will carry us so hold on through this storm and watch victory prevail. Give them a scripture related to their situation that they can meditate on, pray with them encourage hug them, we will go through a season of pain here on earth, but it create an eternity of gain in heaven.

Purpose

Your true identity lies in your struggles not your strengths. When struggling with life don't run, hide, or fight...discover the Truth. So stand, expose & humble yourself before God and man.
Struggle Produces Purpose Psalm 57:2

Dustin Rhodes

Life is sometimes unfair. Things happen and we always don't understand or know why. This journey of being a believer is certainly not easy. we must remember to seek Gods face in all that we do. We may not get the answer right away or when we want it but God is always on time. Keep seeking God, Keep Praying, Keep Trusting and Keep running for the race is not given to the swift nor the strong but to those who endure to the end. Make sure you have your spiritual hear aide on so you can hear what God is Saying to you

Christian Struggling

Pray and seek God's word. Pray and ask God to strengthen you in the faith and prayer. Stay encouraged.

Stand Your Ground

God said in 1Peter5:7 Casting all your care upon him for he care for you.
Because Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the Morning.

Stronger

No matter how much your struggles weigh, know that God would never put more on you than you can bear; so know that whatever you are going through that God believes that you can handle and make something out of nothing.

What do I say to a Believer who is struggling?

Attempt: Hustle: Tackle: Work For: Struggle For: Lament For: To Fight For: are just portions of what the word struggle mean. As believers we should never look for things to be easy but what we should look for is possible. With the impossible ahead of you remain mindful during the battle. Know that fear is a perception, a distraction, and an issue of doubt in your heart. You remove the fear from the struggle by allowing light to penetrate every fraction of darkness representing fear and doubt. Psalms 119:130- The revelation of Your words brings light and gives understanding to the inexperienced. The struggles come to test our faith, strengthen us, and birth fruit in our life that would never ripen without summer's heat & storms, fall's wind & chills, winter's deep freeze and silent landscape, and the finally the spring seeding-growth-development and saturating rains. All this for the Harvest that God has prepared for those who love him, putting their hand to the plow, and never looking back. Struggling in change!

Wait on God!!

No matter who you are there will be struggles throughout your walk with Christ. You just have to believe, trust and always patiently wait on God!!

Momentary Inconvenience

Your struggle is just a momentary Inconvenience and a temporary test of your faith! The reward is worth fighting for!

Trust God

The only thing that you really can do is just continue to trust God. Since He has done it before, He will do it again.
