God uses the things that we see as problems in our lives to make us more like Jesus. Our trials don’t go to waste, they are not the result of bad luck or being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but they are ordained by God for us. In light of this we have to know that nothing can get to the sheep unless it comes through the Shepherd.
So knowing that these problems you are facing haven’t escaped God’s notice, but to the contrary, that God is going to do something with this problem that will build you up and bring Him glory, we can rejoice in the trial.
Whatever you are experiencing today, count it all joy, for God is working a great work in you.
