Isn’t it great when we are loved?! The feeling of security, happiness, peace, trust. How wonderful! We would always like to feel this way. But what about when something happens in our life that is completely contrary to this. A betrayal of some kind from someone that you never thought could do this to you? Our feeling of security becomes insecurity, happiness becomes a profound sadness, peace turns into total chaos and trust is gone! We become hopeless! At least this is how we look at it from a worldly point of view. Instead of doing that, let’s point it to the Cross!
We are on this earth for one purpose and one purpose only and that is to glorify and serve Jesus Christ in any way He sees fit. Insecurity, sadness, chaos, hopelessness and betrayal are inconsistant when Jesus is our Lord and Savior! During times of terrible despair, we must focus our eyes on Jesus. He has a purpose for our lives. Romans 8:28-29 “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the first-born among many bretheren.
We are to concentrate on Him when any pain enters our lives. God promises that any evil that has been done against us will be worked for our good. In the midst of our suffering God is conforming us. He is changing us. He is changing our character to be more like Him. Praise God for that! That is the ultimate goal to achieve in our christian life.
God loves us and He will never let us down. Put your trust in Him and grow!
