Growing From Trouble

Adapted from the resource Wake Up to the Word Devotional - by Joyce Meyer 2 MIN READ

Let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance. —Romans 5:3 (AMPC)

We all face obstacles from time to time. God doesn’t remove every obstacle that stands in our way because we are often made stronger as we learn to overcome obstacles.

When we deal with the difficulties of life, we are strengthened. But if we run from all of them, we will never grow and become stronger in our faith and abilities.

If God allowed us to go through all of life without any obstacles, it would harm us. We would not be as strong as we could have been. Many times, our obstacles are what God uses to give us the strength to succeed, as long as we refuse to quit when there seems to be no way to go on.

With God on your side, you can face today’s challenges and overcome them. And He’ll provide you with the strength you need to overcome tomorrow’s problems too.

Prayer Starter: Dear Lord, help me to look to You when I need the strength to persevere. Turn my fear into faith, and help me to step out and do Your will today and every day, in Jesus’ name, amen.
