One of my favorite scriptures is Jeremiah 1:5. It says “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart.”
During a struggle or trial, we are often told to pray… which is correct, worship… which is also correct, but I have a thought to offer. During a struggle or trial why don’t we consider and remember. We are not haphazardly existing on this earth. You and I were chosen by God to live in this world at this time. Such love, vision, and compassion can not be dismissed because of a negative coworker, cheating spouse or flat tire right??!! As Christians, we should not dismiss the robust intention of God with a temporal moment of anger, sadness or even depression.
This year it’s time to hold fast to the word of God in our life. We are His people and being His people no trial, struggle, illness, person, item (or lack of item) will discourage us in our relationship and faith in Christ! This time, remember who you are and that if you are living God still has something amazing planned for your life. Don’t believe me just pick up your Bible, it says the very same thing. Peace.. Selah
