1 Peter 5:10 (KJV) – But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
Some troubles are man made while others are orchestrated by God but in all things, God has promised to see us through. Troubles are not pleasant, but they are catalysts for our growth. Troubles teach us how to react maturely, they are opportunities that reveal the true state of our heart and that of those around us hence they increase our wisdom in choosing the right associations. Troubles draw us close to God and teach us how to trust in His Love. No matter the trouble that comes our way, we must know that it will come to an end. We will find soon discover that trouble was not built to last forever but God’s Love will last forever. So do not quit to weariness, draw strength from the Holy Spirit and keep pressing until you feel the overwhelming Love of Christ sweep over your soul and replace every weariness with happiness and peace of mind.
Dear Lord help me not to give up to troubles that so often seem to overwhelm my mind and emotions in Jesus name.
