No Big Deal


For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 2 Corinthians 4:17
Who has not heard the phrase, "This too shall pass"? Basically it means that whatever is happening now will not last forever. For instance, a woman's labor pains bringing a child into the world, will eventually end and the baby is born. All the bad stuff will eventually be over.  According to this verse above God has a plan and we need to know He is going to help us. Remember the story of Joseph in the Bible sold into slavery, and he ended up saving them later? Read the account in Genesis 37. What the brothers meant for evil God used for good. Our God is like that.
Sometimes in the midst of troubles and turmoil it is hard to see any purpose or good that would ever come from it. It is necessary to trust that God does indeed have a plan to establish and restore in the midst of chaos. Do not look at the problem but keep your eyes on God. Keep looking above and not allowing Satan to bring discouragement upon you. Above all do not abandon God in your trials but embrace Him and keep believing.
What is going on in your life or life of a family member in which you are waiting for the crisis to end? Do not give up and keep hope alive.
PRAYER: Even when storms of life start to make me feel like I can not go on, I will trust and continue to pray. I believe you are working. In Jesus' name. Amen.

    This is my goal as I learn more about God.
