Overcoming Frustration

Day 4 of 6 • This day’s reading

Devotional

Does God have a hidden message?

Have you noticed that Paul considered his suffering to be something sent by Satan? Yet, this thorn also carries a revelation...it enabled God to manifest Himself in an even more extraordinary way in Paul’s life.

Could it be that God has allowed this suffering, hiding a marvelous message in it for you?

Take your situation, for example...behind the sickness, rebellious child, relationship difficulties, physical or emotional wound...God is there.

He discreetly slipped a word of love in the envelope, a word of compassion, an unfailing promise…“My grace is sufficient for you!” (see 2 Corinthians 12:9)

If you’re being tested and tried right now, remember that the source of your frustration is just a crinkled, dirty envelope. But inside, there’s a divine message, full of love and full of grace. I pray that the Holy Spirit helps you discover it today!

The Bible says, “Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are fearful-hearted, “Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God; He will come and save you.”” (Isaiah 35:3-4)
