Dear reader, are you experiencing rejection and despising from the world because you live for Jesus? Do you develop doubts and confusions as you face rough patches in life? Do you ever wonder why you are suffering while less righteous people prosper? But there is no need to compare your spiritual bliss with the temporary prosperity that the people of this world secure. You are not on slippery ground, where as they are on slippery ground. Their prosperity ends with this life whereas your bliss is eternal. If you feel that you are suffering, it is because of that great cause that centers around you life of faith and trust in the Lord. Your difficulties in this life are training ground for you to develop spiritual muscle to exercise faith in your Lord. It is only when you have a problem that you realize how your Lord is with you and helps you to go through it. He teaches you greater faith and trust as you keep holding on to His hands and as you experience His right hand on you. You are right now being trained to develop greater patience, maturity, stability and growth in your life of faith. These experiences are thus investment for the future. So you need to develop the tenacity to learn from Him as you and your Lord walk together. It is during the time you walk hand in hand with the Lord that He reveals the greatness of His glory to you. But it requires patience and willingness to learn which He wants to impart on those who trust Him to walk with Him. Today let us walk with Him and learn from Him about His greatness. Let our walk with Him lead us to be amazed at His splendid majesty and greatness and let us get ourselves lost in the wonder and the awe of His glory! His glory will help us not to loose heart, but to become more confident in Him.
There is no greater thrill in life than walking hand in hand with the Lord!
