Encouragement for Every Season

No matter what you are facing today, God understands and will faithfully care for you.

Deuteronomy 7:7-9

Each year we watch summer turn to fall, which then gives way to winter. And though the timing is less predictable, our lives similarly go through different seasons. Some months are brimming with joy while others are a slog of hardship. But one thing that stays the same throughout is the faithfulness of God.

In his first letter to the Corinthians, Paul writes, “God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord” (1 Corinthians 1:9). The Lord always does what He says He will do. He keeps His promises to you and will be with you in all seasons (Hebrews 13:5). That means no matter how dark, depressing, or hopeless your circumstances seem—or how good—these three things are true:

  1. God will be faithful to you because that is His very nature (Deuteronomy 32:4).
  2. God knows all about your situation; you are never alone (Psalm 139:1-5).
  3. God can meet all of your needs and equip you for every phase of life (Philippians 4:19).

Remember this: You will change and seasons will change, but God is always the same. He won’t ever fail you or forget you—He is with you always. Great is His faithfulness!
