March 18 Do You Thank God For Difficulties?

Matthew 6:33-34

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.


DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

God, who is both wise and gracious, has ordered some trouble for you today. And every day of your life. Why would He do that? Because of what trouble will bring you.

We’ve been blessed with difficulties. Yes, you read right—blessed! The worst thing that could happen to us would be to have no difficulties at all. If that were the case, we’d never know our need of the Lord. So God in essence says, “I’m going to give you sufficient difficulty for the day.”

God gives you enough difficulty to draw you close to Him, but then He gives you enough grace to meet those difficulties every day.

ACTION POINT:

Are there difficult circumstances in your life? If so, thank God for sending them your way to make you more like Jesus. Now ask for His grace to be victorious through those difficulties.
