Job never lost his faith in God, but trusted him in times of suffering
In exile, Daniel never lost hope in God’s plan for his people and his provision in both times of prosperity and persecution.
Abraham believed in God’s promise and covenant before anything even happened in the physical world.
The disciples were challenged by Jesus and had to changed the way they saw God AND the world.
The apostle Paul went through tremendous hardship in his ministry for Christ. However, he was content and had peace in all circumstances.
Even when we don’t know why we are suffering, we should trust God no matter what.
Both in times of prosperity and persecution, we will have hope in Jesus Christ.
That hope is because…
Christians have a covenant with God and can believe is his promises in the worst of times.
So with that understanding…
We will let our expectations be shaped by Jesus and not by our own desires.
And when we do that,
Even in the worst of seasons, we will find contentment in Christ and not in our circumstances.
