Dear ones, the clouds that God has allowed in your life are for showing His light, His power and His glory. The Son will be reflected through you and through your life. Without those clouds.... He'll receive less glory.
difficulty in the right perspective. The problems of life can grow
wonderfully dim when we abide in Him, look to Him, fully love Him and are filled with Him.
The trial doesn't necessarily go away when we have more of Him but it reduces the effect it has on our mind and heart. More of Him allows us to walk in victory, be calm and truly trusting in the midst of the storm. The trial will no longer scream at you and demand your devoted attention.
Are you waiting on the Lord for something today? I think it would be safe to say that most of us are. Well, as the psalmist said- Be of good courage! The Lord is worth waiting on and He never disappoints us. But His ways are not our ways. It may be that in your waiting, the Lord has strength for you. He may want to take you and put you in His secret place where none of this earth's trials can move you- only settle you deeper into the foundation of the Rock.
* Remember, sometimes the Lord calms the storm but at other times, He let's the storm rage and calms His child.
There are times though when GOD is the only answer.
Worship the Lord in your trial dear sisters.
