In every pain, we praise His Name — because when we come to nothing, where pain becomes too much, we must know it is Jesus who is teaching us something to build our character!
It’s too easy to say “Why God!” It’s tempting to say, “You said!” Yet sometimes He will allow things that make no sense to us.
That is when the Character He has molded in us is tested!
On a war field, there is a battle, and the best leader is the one who trains hard and gives us the tools to beat the enemy!
Jesus wants us prepared for all things and just as a mother or father — we prepare our children for every eventuality.
Faith Brings Joy
“Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love,” Romans 5:1-5 NLT.
