We come upon problems and issues in our daily walk. It’s inevitable. It’s just part of life. We try our best to avoid any big catastrophes that could possibly come our way. But sometimes they still do come. It’s in those times that it is hardest to remember that God is there. He never leaves us. And how he is using it all for good in his own mysterious way. We fear the pain we will encounter.
But it is in our pain that we meet Christ on the cross. He suffered excruciating pain for the joy to come. It is in those moments of pain, in those moments of calamity that we are to clap our hands and give thanks for the good God is doing. We must trust in the unseen ways of our Father in heaven who is always with us as He promises and who never gives us anything too big for us to handle. He uses all trials to grow us closer to Him, if we keep our eyes on Him.
It is a path of trust and surrender where we remember there is nothing too big for God. He is the God who parted the Red Sea, who raised the dead and who cured the blind. He can make a way where there is none. He is the God who sent his only son, Jesus, to be our great Redeemer and who redeems all things.
(1Corinthians 10:13, John 16:33, Romans 8: 31-33)
