So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while keeping the wicked under punishment until the day of final judgment. 2 Peter 2:9 New Living Translation
When I was a baby Christian I used to cry out to my Beloved:” Father, why are these terrible things happening to me?” I used to think I was being punished because of some wrong committed. Sometimes they were but most were not.
Now, a more mature Christian (Not fully mature mind you, that will only happen in Heaven) I ask: “ Lord what are You trying to teach me in these difficult circumstances (and yes, there is always a lesson to learn)? Or ‘Lord, if I have offended You please reveal to me that which displeases You and how to correct the situation.” However one thing that is always abundantly clear and for which there is great gratitude is the knowledge that He is walking through them with me and will deliver me in the appropriate time and in the appropriate manner.
“Trials are not enemies of faith but are opportunities to prove God’s faithfulness.” — Author Unknown
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) that no matter the trouble that comes my way, You will walk through them with me. Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ (God the Revealer of Mysteries ) for revealing so much to me through these experiences. I praise You in the name of He who suffered so much for me out of Divine love Jesus Christ. Amen
The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.
