Are Troubles Really for My Good?

Are the changes we experience really necessary for us to get with the program! Are you tried of how you are bombarded with hardships and yet some of your friends and those around you seems to be living on easy street. It seems as though God picks certain people to carry the burdens of this world and let’s others slide by and enjoy their lives.

I realize that God says in His word, that the troubles of this world are to help develop our dependency on Him; making us God-dependent. Have you found this to be true? Do you find that you are thankful to God for the troubles you have experienced or are you angry with God?

God says in Jeremiah 29:11(AMPC),

“For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.”

Friends, pray with me this prayer found in Psalm 139:23-24(AMPC),

“Search me [thoroughly], O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”

I would love to hear from you, and talk about how this truth has affected you, and where you are with God in the midst of it. I look forward to reading your comment. Have a blessed day.
