Grace morning on this triumphant and tranquil Thursday.
When trouble strikes, we sometimes forget our knowledge of God, too. We struggle to recall past answers to prayer.
In our own strength, we lack sufficient resources and abilities to meet life's challenges. So God provides what we need. Our suffering is never a surprise to the Lord. He knows everything we are going through.
Only the present trials we face seems real. Our minds spin with future implications, and our troubled emotions hinder clear thinking.
No one enjoys suffering. But in the hands of almighty God, trials become tools. He uses hardship to shape believers into the people He intends them to be.
In our own strength, we lack sufficient resources and abilities to meet life's challenges. So God provides what we need.
God promises us He'll provide a path through any trial we face.
The pressures that bear down on us from stormy situations are meant to reveal His abiding presence in the midst of your trouble. God always provides for our needs to help us both endure and grow stronger in our Christian faith.
“Finally, let’s draw near to the throne of favor with confidence so that we can receive mercy and find grace when we need help.”
Hebrews 4:16 CEB
You may not sense God's presence during a crisis. But He has promised to always be with you. The assurance that the Lord will never leave you provides immediate comfort, an infusion of courage, and a sense of confidence to endure.
Live, love, and laugh your way through this tremendous and trouble-less Thursday!
