If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
During a quiet time earlier in the week I came across a passage from Frances Roberts’ Come Away My Beloved that I really had to share.
My child, do not expect the trials to be lighter than in the past. Why should you think the tests would be less severe? I test all things, and there are areas of your life that as yet I have not touched. Do not look for respite. The days ahead may call for greater endurance and more robust faith than you ever needed before.
Welcome this, for you must surely know how precious are the lessons learned through such experiences. Even if you are unable to fully anticipate them with joy, you can certainly gain an appropriate appreciation of them in retrospect.
Apply your heart to learn wisdom. This goal transcends every other aim, and any other good that comes out of a pressure period is an added blessing in excess.
Seek Me above all else.
Whilst reading this I was reminded of Romans 5:3-4, “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.”
If, like me, you’ve been going through a difficult period I want to urge you to spend time with Him in prayer and in reading His word. Remember that we serve an all-knowing, all-powerful, sovereign God who loves us! Do not despair. We are in His loving hands.
If you are going through tough times and need any prayer, please don’t hesitate to drop us a mail.
I pray that, as you enter this new week, you will feel encouraged and strive to seek Him above all else!
Peace and Love
