We all have faced or are still facing challenges in 2013 that have tested our FAITH. Whether it was loosing a loved one, getting laid off, financial struggles or receiving an upsetting diagnosis, if your still here today that means your a lot stronger than what you thought you were.
Do you know that God never promised that life would be easy? If it were He would not have left His Word for our instruction. When we look at some of the great men in the Bible you will see they didn’t have it any easier. For example, could you imagine being Abraham and having to prepare to sacrifice your son that you asked God to give you? Gen. 22.
Or, what about Jonah? Could you be in the belly of a fish for three days and three nights uncertain of what was to come. Jonah1&2. I believe we all have different challenges for a reason and no ones is exactly the same.
Ever heard the phrase, “There is always someone else that is worst off then you?” Sad as it may be, its true. SN: Why is this suppose to make us feel better about our own situation? Anyways, one thing is for certain, the Lord will not put more on us than we can bare. 1Corinthians 10:13
We have to learn as children of the most high that we will go through hardships, but they are only temporary and ultimately for God’s glory. Whatever your struggles, know that God is for you and not against you. As I write this, I encourage myself and hope that it does the same for you. Cheers! May you have the best days in 2014!
