We are more than conquerors

In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us (Rom. 8:37).

Why didn't God help me sooner?

Why didn't God help me sooner? This is a question that is often asked, but it is not His will to act on your schedule. He desires to change you through the trouble and cause you to learn a lesson from it. He has promised, "I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him" (Ps. 91:15). He will be with you in trouble all day and through the night. Afterward he will take you out of it, but not until you have stopped being restless and worried over it and have become calm and quiet. Then He will say, "It is enough."

God uses trouble to teach His children precious lessons. Difficulties are intended to educate us, and when their good work is done, a glorious reward will become ours through them. There is a sweet joy and a real value in difficulties, for He regards them not as difficulties but as opportunities.


Our Refuge and Strength

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1)

God Knows Your Heart ♥

Blessed are all who wait for him! (Isaiah 30:18)
