From the Kitchen Table
No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. “Make level paths for your feet,” so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed. Hebrews 12:11-13
While most people are looking to get out of their circumstances, don’t be afraid to go through them. Our circumstances may not have been God’s perfect will for our lives but God can and will shape us for His will through our circumstances. The Bible says that we reap what we sow and so there will be times where we learn as we go. God is not limited by our choices and circumstances if we won’t limit Him in our choices and circumstances. Depend on Him and He will develop and deliver us through our difficulty and from our difficulties. Being precedes doing, having and going, let God develop you through your difficulties while He delivers you from them. We wouldn’t need a miracle if we never had a difficulty. Never forget that God is in the room.
