Grace morning on this tremendous and tranquil Tuesday.
People who face painful trials and trouble in their lives can feel defeated as they experience the sorrow of weariness. In Scripture, King David wrote Psalm 6 crying out to God, “My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O LORD – how long?”.
I believe most of us have asked God the same question. God has not allowed anything to happen in your life that will not fulfill his purpose for your good.
If your struggle is lasting longer than you feel you can bear, take heart and rely on God’s word. In God’s word, you will find the peace you need to hold on. You will see that even when God appears silent, he is actually preparing your heart for his perfect answer. The wait has a purpose and is part of the plan.
Your faith is proved to be genuine only when it is tested! We all grow weary in the battles of this life. It may even appear that evil is overcoming the world. You are not in a losing battle. Your victory is guaranteed! The devil already knows that you have been declared a conqueror.
God’s plan was put in place long before he formed the world, you can have peace knowing that he has prepared a way to take you through every trial and get you to where he wants you to be.
“He got up and gave orders to the wind, and he said to the lake, "Silence! Be still!" The wind settled down and there was a great calm. Jesus asked them, "Why are you frightened? Don’t you have faith yet?"”
Mark 4:39-40 CEB
You will find comfort in trials only if you affirm God’s absolute sovereignty.
Live, love, and laugh your way through this terrific and trouble-less Tuesday!
