Are you having a hard time right now? Maybe things are difficult? Maybe you have gone through something really tough. Maybe you’re scared, or disappointed. You wonder why you have gone through some things. You question, will things get better? Let me tell you right now, YES! God is a restoring God, and he never leaves us in difficult things, His purpose is always to lead us through things and on the way, use any hardships to change us for the better, to mould us to be more like him, and to further His purposes in your life.
This doesn’t mean suffering or hardships are sent from God. But I do believe that whatever we go through God is right there in the midst of it with us. And if we will press into Him, trust Him, and wait for Him, you will see things turn around in the most amazing way. There’s a verse in the Bible that I love;
For those who love God all things work together for good
Is that really right? All things work together for good? Yes, if you love God, His hand is over everything you have or ever will go through, and somehow, in His infinite wisdom and power, He will turn all things around for your good! Maybe you can’t see how this is possible, but let me tell you it is! If it’s in the Bible, it is true, 100%, no compromise! So for whatever you are facing right now, know He will turn it around, somehow, in His time, for your good. It may not look like you expect it to look like, it may not happen when you expect it to, but you will look back on these things and see God’s hand.
A verse that I have had such encouragement from in the past is this;
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
Even there Your hand will lead me,
And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
To me, the remotest parts of the sea is probably a dark place, a rough place where it can be difficult or scary, or lonely, but even there his hand holds us, and leads us! Know right now that God has you, and somehow, even if you can’t see it, He is leading you through things. So press into Him, and just wait and see what he’ll do!
