Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. – James 1:2 NIV
When we encounter disappointments, God is teaching us something. Sometimes He is asking us to realign our values with His will. Other times He’s pointing out that He has something better in store for us than what we had planned. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. He knows what is right for us.
It takes patience to be tested. We don’t often like it, but when we finally understand what God has been trying to tell us, we come to value the lesson He is sharing with us. He can surprise us with opportunities that are better than we can imagine. We can have faith that He will see His plan through for us. Amen.
On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scriptures has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” By this He meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were later to receive. – John 7:37-39
God fills our lives with incredible blessings. He saves us from wildfires. He makes sure we have a safe place to live. He guides and protects us.
The Holy Spirit is in us and with us, and He guides us wherever we go. It is a gift.
We can be grateful for the many blessings God has bestowed upon us. We are lucky, indeed, to have a Savior who cares so much about us. He opens up good opportunities in our lives. Amen.
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to God our Savior, who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen. – Jude 24-25
The Lord is here to catch us from falling. He doesn’t want us to stumble. We can rest in the assurance that He will take care of all our needs. He opens up perfect opportunities for us. He loves us completely.
