Life has a way of throwing us curveballs. One second you’re standing tall, the next you’re flat on your back.
“Not today, Satan. Not today.” That’s the phrase that runs through my mind whenever I’m feeling the frustrations of life. Satan sure does know how to weasel his way in. He sees us at our most vulnerable and attacks.
1 Peter 5:8 tells us to “Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.”
We must cling to the Lord always but especially through extremely hard times. Our faith is tested through these periods and we must remember that God hasn’t left us though it may feel like He has.
It is through these times that our faith is given a chance to persevere.
Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothingJames 1:2-4
It is through these times that we also need to find the good. We need to always find the good through the painful circumstances.
God is good all the time.
All the time God is good.
Just remember….God is good. He’ll always be the good.
