Has life thrown you down a pit so deep you think you’ll never get out? Have you begun to tell yourself: ‘well, this is my life now; it will always be this way.’ We feel trapped and we lose our joy. About the only ‘joy’ we have in life is the stuff we squirt into the kitchen sink to clean our dishes with.
So, what do you do when you find yourself saying: ‘how will I ever get through this?’ Is there a purpose for these trials God has permitted to come into my life? Sure there is. God has hand-crafted those trials to make you a better person, through the heat and fire of adversity He’s building steel into your character and soul, to make you a little more like Jesus.
God never does things haphazardly! He never does things on a whim, like, let’s try this and see what happens! He never says: ‘I’ll get you now.’ No, God doesn’t do that. People do that, but God doesn’t.
He knows what He is doing. And as bad as things may look, at the right time, He will bring you out of that pit and bring good into your life.
What will He do? Only He knows. But He’s preparing you for something good.
So, do like David did, on the run for his life, by faith: awaken the dawn! Ps. 57:7,8
One thing we can do is take it one day at a time and then by faith greet each new day with praise.
By trust in God’s goodness, awaken the dawn!
Each new day brings you one day closer to your day of deliverance!
And may you look for and be thankful for each small blessing along the way!
