Daily Devotional: A perfect plan for hardships…
It’s hard to understand what God is doing in your life during stressful times. It’s even more difficult to believe the hardship could be part of some greater plan. When Joseph was sold into slavery by jealous brothers, he probably struggled greatly trying to discern God’s will. Many years later however, after Joseph became the second most powerful man in Egypt, he realized that God did indeed have a great plan in place!
God determines the pattern of all our lives. He knows everything we’re going through and everything we will go through in the future. In our current circumstances, as difficult as they may be, hold on to the assurance that God is busy working behind the scenes. Life’s darkest moments now will soon become a great testimony of His goodness. Of His perfect plan. You need only to believe. Today, trust Him.
“Faithful Guide and Father, we trust in You. We trust that You will lead us safely along the darkened pathways of life. We need only to keep our eyes fixed on You. And we will. We pray this all in your Great Name. Amen.”
