Christians and non-Christians, all experience difficulties and hardships in life. Followers of Jesus have a different response to the hardships in life. Our response is based on our faith in the Lord Jesus. Jesus said in Matthew 29:20 "And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Since Jesus is with us in our hardships, we can have assurance that Jesus will help us and get us through the hardships. The key to overcoming hardship is our faith in Jesus and trusting that He is going to help us.
