Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them. – Isaiah 30:20 NIV
Even though this year has been difficult for many, the Lord has taught us hard lessons that we are better off knowing. He has taught us forgiveness. He has humbled us during times of illness. He has taught us to rely on Him, during prosperity and during adversity.
We don’t always like to hear these lessons. We would like everything to work out our way, but it doesn’t always go according to plan.
When we surrender to God’s plans, we learn that a brighter future is possible. We learn to trust in Him always. Amen.
