He Uses Our Difficulties

Monday, July 15, 2013

ďThat is why, for Christís sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.Ē
(2 Corinthians 12:10, NIV)
TODAYíS WORD from Joel and Victoria

We all face difficult situations. Somebody isnít treating you right; your business is not growing as fast as you had hoped, or maybe youíre single and still havenít met anyone. Itís easy to get frustrated and anxious on the inside. You donít understand why itís taking so long or why things havenít changed.

But hereís a key: just because itís an uncomfortable place doesnít mean itís not where youíre supposed to be. God uses difficulties to do a work in us. We grow in the tough times. Thatís when our character is being developed. God will not allow a difficulty unless He has a divine purpose for it. If weíre going to reach our highest potential, we have to make up our mind, ďIím not going to live frustrated because I am uncomfortable. Iím not going to be upset because things are not happening on my timetable. Iím not going to fight against everything that I donít like.Ē Instead, believe that God is doing a work in you. Believe that He has the best for you. And see yourself moving forward in the victory He has prepared for you.
Father, today I give You my questions, frustrations, concerns and doubts. Have Your way in me. I trust that You are at work in every difficult situation in my life in Jesusí name. Amen.
ó Joel & Victoria Osteen
