For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. – 2 Corinthians 4:17 NIV
I sometimes wonder if God gets tired of hearing about my troubles. I don’t mean to complain, but at times, I ask Him for a lot.
It’s a good thing that our God is patient, and He is capable of solving all our problems. Nothing is impossible for God. No challenge is too difficult for Him. We can trust that He has all the answers.
When we entrust Him with our time, money, and plans, we know that we have invested wisely. God never lets us down. He does, from time to time, show us what we really should want, because it is better than what we had imagined. He can see the big picture. Our God loves us and saved us. Amen.
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.
