Spreading God's Love Thru Prayer
"Why art thou cast down, O my soul?... hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise Him." Psalm 42:5
Here's an anchor for your soul in the storms of life: "I am growing by His plan."
What is God's plan for you? He wants to enlarge you, not indulge you. God is not so interested in making you happy and healthy as He is in making you holy. And so God will allow troubles to make you more like Christ.
Think about the times when you have grown the most. It is when your friend "Trouble" came along. I have grown the most in my own life in times of deepest despair.
Look at the troubles in your life not as adversaries, but as friends. Get a godly perspective of it, and see how you can become holy through hardship.
Thank You Lord, for teaching me through the pains and struggles of adversity how to rely on You for deliverance. It is in the bad times I have learned how to appreciate the good You have sent my way. I am growing daily in the ways of holiness by trusting in Your leadership. In Jesus' name I profess I am an over comer. Amen.
