Ever asking why things seems so hard for you to go through ? And while for other it’s like effortlessly flowing perfectly.
Like you often questioning how life is unfair , you prayed hard you fought hard , you sacrificed a lot but in the end; things are slipping out from your grasp.
Indeed as what the scripture says Life is unfair ;
John 16 :33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
He did not state ,” Hey My child You can make it on yourself !,
He said Take heart ! , Have faith ! Look what I’m gonna do ..
Jesus clearly states believe on what He can do for you . And He overcome everything with His mighty strength.
Hey , He’s not done yet
There is always a process for growth. Trust God in the process
It’s not easy you need to accept that it is not easy for you but for God with a snap of a finger He will give it to you.
No . He’s not making it difficult for you . He is teaching you to have faith and trust Him. He wants you to discover His strength through you.
If we look only on our own strength and ability, It’s not enough.
God wants you to discover Him on things you can’t do by yourself.
Heavy loads are for those who have strong backs.
Things seems hard for you because you are looking on on your own capabilities which is clearly opposite to what the scriptures says.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
He carried us on His cross the weight of ALL the problems and pains that we gone through and will be going through life has already been lifted.
Pray for strength if your faith is tested. If things aren’t going on your way.
It might be going on the other way and let it go to God’s way.
He is teaching you and shaping your character
Romans 8: 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.
God is processing you for His Purpose. He let’s you go through what you are going through so you will exercise your faith and will gain a lot from this experience.
There must be something He’s up for you 🙂
As the process goes He is definitely shaping our character for a purpose.
Our patience , perseverance , there is always something that we gain after hard trials on our life .It’s lessons , wisdom , ability, talent ,hope, faith, a good testimony to empower and bless others . Things that might not be visible but it’s within us and will remain in us in a course of time .
We are forged for a purpose
Zechariah 13:9 And I will put this third into the fire, and refine them as one refines silver, and test them as gold is tested. They will call upon my name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘They are my people’; and they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’”
I saw my dad forging an ax so he can use it to cut logs in the backyard.
I saw him working hard hammering the metal shaping it forging it on the open flame. That metal is not easy to bend but he continuously blow his hammer to make the sharp edge of the axe be honed .
And I saw How happy he is after he tested the ax on some logs and I remember he always use that ax.
We might be facing a stressful situation but remember that the metal getting forged in the fire , hammered with a lot of friction and shaped and sharpened to cut large woods.
This metal finally found it’s purpose from a piece of scrap to a cutting tool .
The stresses and problems we have in life is our training ground to God’s purpose in our life.
Finally , I hope this will help you my friend on what you are going through now.
I pray that you will get through with it with Jesus 🙂
