It’s not easy…


The scripture below is an excerpt from a letter that was written by the apostle Paul to the church in Philippi. He talks about being content in the midst of bad situations. In fact, a lot of the letters he wrote were written from a jail cell. My friends, let us consider what was transpiring. From within an extremely negative environment, was being produced some of the most positive and significant writings known to mankind. This is an excellent example of good in a bad situation. 

“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.” Philippians 4:12 

It’s not easy to find the good in a bad situation.What we must remember is, that things could always be worse. It’s in those moments of adversity, that we find out how closely we walk with and rely on God. 

Sometimes God will allow these situations to occur to point us back to Him, or even show us a life lesson we would have ordinarily missed. These are the times when we must trust God. The feeling of not having enough or even panic may come, but we must remember that those are just emotions. We should not be led by our emotions, but allow our faith to steer us.

Trouble will come and problems will arise, but we must always remember to rely on our God. He loves us and is with us. He promised that He would never leave us even in the midst of trouble. No matter how bad it gets, there is a rainbow in the midst of it. My friends, be encouraged today and know that things will get better. Remember your footsteps are being ordered by the Lord.
