As human beings, events often happen in our lives that can cause us to become despondent, even discouraged. Many times we are asked to do things that seem impossible. But our great God knows we cannot ‘run the race’ by ourselves. He does not abandon His servants. In this message we look at this, how God has helped and encouraged His servants of the past in times of trial and difficulty, how he does the very same for us – and that our God is a God of comfort and encouragement.
