Don’t you think God could be using our world’s time of adversity to draw us, His children, to Himself?
“[God] opens their ears BY adversity.”
Let’s preach the Gospel not only by our words, but by our actions in this season. Our times right now are NOTHING compared to the adversities Jesus went through here on earth, so “If thou art willing to suffer no adversity, how wilt thou be the friend of Christ?” (Thomas a Kempis) God works all things together for good FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM…so if you don’t know Jesus and have a personal relationship with Him and walking in tandem with His Truths (The Bible), I’m praying for you that you will lift your eyes to The Hills where your only help comes from, not only just in times of uncertainty and chaos, but in times of prosperity as well. We are God’s masterpiece and as Christians, are being renewed day by day to be more and more like Jesus…so don’t you think that in a sense, “adversity is the diamond dust God polishes us, His jewels” with? (Thomas Carlyle) Our reward as Christians is coming! We shall fear no evil. Rest in Jesus and know that IN CHRIST, better days are coming. But in the meantime, let’s look to our Helper, our Teacher for guidance on how to live a life holy and pleasing to God, and worship Him in Spirit and in Truth in ALL that we do, whether in turmoil or in serenity, adversity, or prosperity. Be Jesus to everyone!
”Though the Lord gave you adversity for food and suffering for drink, He will still be with you to teach you. You will see your Teacher with your own eyes. Your own ears will hear him.”
