Good Morning my friends,
Face a major obstacle in your life and you will learn about your faith. Troubles in your life will either draw you closer to God or do the opposite and just remember it’s your choice not
God’s which direction you go. It’s easy to blame God for the troubles that come into your life or for not answering a prayer when trouble(s) come, however you must always remember the same God that allowed your trouble(s) and didn’t answer your prayer(s) also sent His sinless Son to the cross to die for the payment of your sins.. I think we sometimes forget that Adam & Eve lived in perfect harmony and had free run of the Garden of Eden except for a single tree. When they chose to eat the forbidden fruit, it was only then that troubles came storming into our lives..
“Now this is our boast: Our conscience testifies that we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially in our relations with you, with integrity and godly sincerity. We have done so, relying not on worldly wisdom but on God’s grace.” (2 Corinthians 1:12)
Is God’s grace really sufficient in times of trouble?
Can it and will it sustain you in the midst of a storm?
I can honestly answer yes, but I can also say that there are times that I forget because it’s hard to rely on God’s grace instead of myself even after experiencing it because I’m stubborn I guess.. Maybe it’s because most people have a tendency to want to control everything in their lives and believe they’re responsibility for shaping their own future.
When troubles come, we try to resist them instead of depending on God to see us throughout it. Alexander Maclaren, the distinguished British preacher once wrote, “what disturbs us in this world is not trouble, but our opposition to trouble.”
Put God to the test when trouble comes and He won’t let you down. In the midst of a painful illness, Paul begged God to intervene and take it away. But God replied,
“My grace is sufficient for you” (2 Corinthians 12:9).
If God’s grace was sufficient for Paul, it will be sufficient for you..
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU!!! Discover God’s grace by seeking..
I pray that YOU have an TERRIFIC day. Blessings & much love…. D
Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!!
