“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” 

Revelation 21:4

Everything has an end and so whatever you are facing now must surely come to an end. The bible says this suffering will not last forever; it will come to an end.

Romans 16:20, “The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.” Romans 8:18 says “Sufferings of this present world, not worthy to be compared to the glory that shall be revealed in us.”

As God uses you, and you see your situation in a dismal light, remind yourself, it’s not a struggle, it’s a period of empowerment and your struggle will be over. As God empowers you, and you see your circumstance as hopeless, remind yourself, it’s not a struggle, it’s a stepping-stone and your struggle will be over and as God breaks things off in your life so that He can add increase, don’t moan, “Why is this happening to me.” But instead rejoice and say “thank you Lord for bringing me through this thing so you can use me” and your struggle will be over.

God does not desire His children to withdraw from the world. He does not desire us to become a secluded community reserved for folks that look like us and act like us. This is not His idea of struggle free. He wants us to embrace the fact that the struggle we endure, really are not ours, and that if we just learn to lean not to our own understanding but in all of our ways acknowledge Him, he will direct our path.

Wherever you are, whatever you’ve been going through, God said the struggle is over for you because He has promised that sooner very soon this shall surely fad away and He will finally wipe away every tear and there will no longer be sorrow for all struggle will end.
