2 Corinthians 4:17(NLT)—For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will forever!
We have a tendency to make “mountains out of molehills.” When we are surrounded in our troubles, it is hard to see anything else. Let’s see our troubles as opportunities! Our faith should not diminish or let troubles disillusion us. Our problems are not even close to what Jesus suffered for us. We realize how brief this life can be if we were in a dangerous situation and how much we need Christ in our lives, if we don’t already. This is a good time to prove that our faith in God is real. When others see how we handle disaster or whatever we are going through.
Problems give God the opportunity to demonstrate his power. Our limitations show us that we need Jesus in our lives and will prove that there is a God. He could heal, or calm down a person when they prayed, and He gives hope to the hopeless. There is so much that He can do in any situation. It is up to us to go to Him first by prayer then He will send the right people to help and comfort. Jesus’ victory over death makes us, the saved, victorious, also. This is why it is so imperative to become a believer, as it will save your life.
Good morning! How often do you feel overwhelmed with troubles and you think they will never end? Isn’t it great to know that, “This shall pass in God’s timing.” I am so thankful that God is in control and that I have him with me always. I know that, in His time, and He is always on time, He will work things out for good for those that love Him. The Lord loves us and he never asks us to do something or put us through some trial without giving us the strength to do it. There is a lesson in every situation. Ask Him to show you what He is trying to teach you in all of the ups and downs of life. Have a blessed day.
