And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt (Mark 14:36)~ God could, at the simplest of His thoughts, change the direction you’re facing…so why doesn’t He? Why does God allow us to have trouble? As we struggle day in and day out we tend to get a complainer’s mindset and eventually start to believe God has betrayed us because He’s letting us go through a struggle. But rather than taking us ‘out’ of our struggle-and condoning our ‘running’ from it (and likely back into it again later), He instead in His sovereign wisdom, allows the struggle to continue, and brings us through it— teaching us wisdom and perseverance along the way; how to rise above it so that should it (or when it does) come back we will be better next time through it, being faithful and struggling less through it, trusting HIM and with wisdom, making better choices through it. God never promised we would be without struggles; in fact He reminds us that in this world we will have tribulations (Job 14:1); but understand, it’s NOT His will that any should suffer or perish, but that in Him we turn from those things that beset us… And in HIM; through that faith, perseverance, trust and wisdom we’ve developed, we overcome and have peace throughout! When you can go through a trial in your life and your mind is thinking you’re supposed to be stressed but your soul and your whole disposition is at peace… now THAT’S what happens when God gets His hand on you! -To God Be The Glory! Be blessed!
