“Nevertheless the righteous will hold to his ways, And he who has clean hands will grow stronger and stronger. Job 17:9 Holy Bible, Amplified Version
We all put our mouths in action before our brains from time to time. We say things impulsively that are deeply regretted later.
I have certainly done it numerous times.
That is why we need the Holy Spirit to guard our mouths and indeed clamp them shut many times to keep us out of trouble. He has done that for me numerous times to my deep gratitude.
We all play the victim when trials and tribulations occur and take it out on God: “If you love me why are you allowing this to happen to me”
I have cried that too many times to count. In retrospect however I see that the greatest lessons in life are learned from trials and tribulations. They help us grow the most and helps us to endure then with confidence and even expectation on what Jehovah is doing through these events.
And, you can bet He is doing it for a reason.
“Those speak foolishly who ascribe their anger or their impatience to such as offend them or to tribulation. Tribulation does not make people impatient, but proves that they are impatient. So everyone may learn from tribulation how his heart is constituted.” Martin Luther
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God my teacher) for teaching me through my numerous tribulations and moulding me from them into the beautiful child You desire me to be. I praise You in the name of Your most beautiful Son Jesus Christ. Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
