Learn to Rejoice in Those Things that God has Allowed

2 Corinthians, chapter 12, verses eight and nine: "Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."

Your trials are not meant to destroy you, my brother and my sister. They are meant to reveal the power of God in and through your life. The strength of God is revealed through weakness, not strength-truly a mystery and an irony. Don't spend your time trying to get out of the very thing that God sent into your life to reveal His strength.

Like Paul, may we learn to rejoice in those things that God has allowed in our lives to keep us dependent on Him. It's all by His grace and His mercy.

Remember, it's time to pray.
