I am evolving in so many ways, but chief among them is this. Today, instead of telling someone they were strong enough to get through a crisis, I told them that God gave them the trials they were currently undergoing because He created them to turn to Him to bear them on their behalf. There’s a significant change there. I used to believe the encouragement that “God gives his toughest trials to His strongest warriors,” but that’s a dangerous fallacy. We have no strength. If we are clear, the only wise thing we know is to say “Yes.”
That is today’s lesson.
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV
