It is easy to have faith in the Lord when we are resting in a beautiful garden, the challenge begins when difficult times come upon us. And they will. God doesn’t always take us out of difficult situations, but he is always faithful to take us through them. And while He takes us through them, be builds the character of Christ in us.
We all struggle with Romans 8:28 “ALL THINGS work for the good for those who love Him, and are called according to His purpose.” All things? Really? Yes, really! Actually, some of God’s best work is done during difficult times. He is molding us into the image of Jesus. What can be better than that? We just need to hold on with faith and trust God with the rest.
I love it that Romans 8:28 is followed by Romans 8:39 “Nothing can seperate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus!”
Hold on tight and enjoy the ride!
