Grace morning on this winsome Wednesday.
When you are mistreated, a forgiving response demonstrates the love of Christ to your offender.
A key to forgiving your offender is realizing that God can work through your suffering to accomplish His purposes in your life. Ultimately, God is in control. He allows the good and bad things in life, and we can trust Him to work all things together for good in the lives of those who love Him.
If you find yourself in a difficult season right now, find encouragement through this reminder: God will turn it around for good. He is faithful to his word and He will see you through, don’t ever doubt it. You will step out to the other side of your dark season as you trust God. And who knows, but that many lives may be affected for the kingdom’s sake, because of your difficult season of struggle.
Sometimes the most difficult times we walk through can feel like captivity to our hearts and minds. If you find yourself there today, be assured that God is with you and leading you through. Even if you can’t see how the whole story will unfold, His plans for us are good, He gives hope and purpose. He will turn your struggle around for good.
“The disciples were staggered. “Then who has any chance at all?” Jesus looked hard at them and said, “No chance at all if you think you can pull it off yourself. Every chance in the world if you trust God to do it.”
Matthew 19:25-26 MSG
God has his own way of using our stumbles, struggles, sickness and suffering, as blessing in our life and for many others to know of His power and great love.
Live, love, and laugh your way through this wonderful and worry-less Wednesday!
