Sometimes God places us in difficult situations for the sole purpose – to stretch our faith. Every time I got stumped along the way I realized it was a significant growth spurt that was taking place in my life. I can honestly tell you – I did not like or enjoy those speed bumps, but I can tell you it has always work in my favor.
In our most challenging times, we may never see or understand what God is doing, but it’s important for us to get to a comfort zone where we absolutely trust His plans for our lives. I enjoy taking time in the early morning to simply give God full permission to determine how my day will go. I tell Him my plans, but I give Him permission that whatever happens today … I will be okay with it. At the end of my day when I lie in my bed – I look back at the happenings of the day whether good or bad and I can honestly say – I will continue to trust God that everything will work out in my favor. Whatever the path that God has chosen for us to walk in, be good with it. God can use our brokenness in many ways, and in the end you can always look up and smile saying – “I knew that was You God”
Every experience in life is part of God’s amazing plan for us. God doesn’t carelessly or thoughtlessly cause us pain without a purpose. Tough times don’t last but tough people do. Every season in life passes, no season lasts forever. Just have patience and watch God work it in your favor. Like the Psalmist David said, “I have been young and now I am old , I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed go begging bread.” It’s an honor and privilege to be God’s child. He always works in your favor, all you have to do is to walk in obedience.
When we find ourselves in situations we cannot control….then we know God is in control.
I remember the days I ask God to change some people in my life, but instead – God started changing me – It was much quicker and painless…The end result… they were confused. Choose to remain polished and give God COMPLETE control over every issue in your life.
