Weathering life’s storms
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
If you are going through a problem today, how do you overcome it?
I want to give you a few practical steps to help you weather the storms of your life.
First, trust God. I love what the great preacher Charles Spurgeon used to say, “God is too good to be unkind, too wise to make a mistake. And when you can’t trace His hand, you can always trust His heart.”
God is committed to bringing glory to Himself and good to your life by making you more like Jesus. He does that through the circumstances of your life.
Be confident in what Scripture says: “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”
Secondly, give thanks in all things. You may not understand your circumstances, but you can know that God is using them to make you more like Jesus and move you closer to your purpose in His plan.
The apostle Paul was shipwrecked, beaten, and imprisoned. Yet, in Ephesians 5:20, he challenges us to give thanks “always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Paul knew how to overcome problems in life—by trusting God and giving thanks to Him in every circumstance.
Why not do the same today?!
GOD IS COMMITTED TO BRINGING GLORY TO HIMSELF AND GOOD TO YOUR LIFE.
