10 Challenging Times When Jesus Is Enough

No matter what life seems to throw at you, we must come to understand that Jesus is enough.

1. When you are in pain. 

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” —2 Corinthians 1:3-4

2. When you are confused.

“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” —Philippians 4:7

3. When you are scared.

“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” —Deuteronomy 31:6

4. When you are broken.

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” —Psalms 147:3

5. When you are stressed.

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you” —1 Peter 5:7

6. When you are weak.

“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” —Isaiah 40:29

7. When you are hungry.

And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” —Philippians 4:19

8. When you are tired.

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” —Matthew 11:28

9. When you are lonely.

“And I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty.” —2 Corinthians 6:18

10. When you are abused.

“But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.” —2 Thessalonians 3:3

Jarrid Wilson was a husband, pastor and author relentlessly sharing the love of Jesus. In September of 2019, Jarrid tragically passed away by suicide. He is survived by his wife, Juli, and his two sons, Finch and Denham. His larger than life personality, heart for all people and passion for telling others about the grace and love of Jesus was unmatched, and he is greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. We stand on the promise of Revelation 21:4 that reminds us that in heaven, there is no more sorrow, suffering or death. Hope gets the last word.
