I’m at work, but I believe I’m to write this, so I’m stopping all I’m doing to write this now.
There are people right now, perhaps your one of them. You are going through a difficult trial and you don’t understand why. You might even been asking your friends, “why all this hardship?”
My friend, stop asking what no human can answer.
Job was a righteous man, yet he suffered through tragedy after tragedy. His “friends” tried to answer by their human wisdom. God and man are not on the same level. They were clueless as to what God was doing to make the man, Job. So it is with you. No one can understand why you are going through or what you’re facing unless you are in a rebellious place where you want to do what you want to do causing your own misery. If that’s not the case, count it all joy when you are going through trials because you know God is going after perfecting your faith. Faith in absolutely surrendering what you want for what God wants, knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt, God’s way, is always the best, believing He is faithful to do what He promised. That kind of intimate faith, fully assured God can be trusted no matter what, no matter what you’re faced with, He will come through for you, His beloved! Stay the course. Keep your eyes on God, and keep the faith. You will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!
Remember no one walks exactly the same road. Each road is unique to the person and their God.
Take a moment and pray for someone you know who might be hurting. God, I pray for all those reading this status. I ask you bless them, give them strength in their trials to keep going, trusting you, believing you will help them and will use all things to work together for their good. Amen.
