It has been said that the challenges we face are what cause us to grow. Without challenges in our lives, we may be comfortable and not have reason to grow. Sometimes we think that there may be a magic bullet that takes away all pain, suffering, challenges, or troubles. Where would we be without the challenges and troubles in our lives?
Life is full of twists and turns that can help us to see the importance of different people and situations in our lives. Challenges and troubles can also help us grow closer to God. Even when we know we have been saved by Jesus Christ, we may face adversity. We are not exempt from troubling times, but we can be reassured by God's promises that He is with us and will save us. We will be brought through anything we face and to God's glory as long as we repent, accept Jesus, and put our faith in Him. We are not exempt from troubles because we may need to grow in our understanding of and trust in God!
You are not exempt from facing adversity, but God will save you from it!
Thank You for always being with me and saving me, no matter what I am facing. Help me to continue to learn about You and allow my faith in You to continue to grow. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
