God Said

Day 5 of 6 • This day’s reading

Devotional

Every want, every need, every hope is answered by God, but often it is not in the way that we may expect.


The scripture that states God works in mysterious ways is true. 


There have been many times in my life in which I wasn’t sure why I was going through what I was going through. I questioned the reasoning behind some of the trials and tribulations that I was dealing with, not understanding that it was these very experiences that would thrust me into my purpose. The trials that you go through allow you to become who you need to. They make you stronger. They make you wiser. 


Think about what God said in James 1:2-4.


This verse explains that when we meet different trials, that these trials will test our faith. These tests, however, will give us a sense of steadfastness. Through this steadfast faith, we will become whole. The trials aren’t meant for us to question our faith. Instead, they are used to strengthen our belief! Think about it: you have survived every bad day, every bad event that has ever happened to you.


You are undefeated.


Steadfast resolutely or dutifully firm and unwavering.


Your hardships are tests and the word is your textbook. If you want to pass, then you must study!


Open your Bible, not just on the good days but on the bad days, too. Allow the word of God to take hold of your mind and to calm you. Don’t listen to what other people may say, listen to what God says!


GOD said that you are the head and not the tail.


GOD said that you were created in His image.


GOD said that you will prosper.


And ultimately, God has the final word.
