“We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. Endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of God's grace, salvation and the fact that He will never leave or forsake us."
The way we handle adversities has a huge impact on our success in life. If we shrink back, choose to get bitter and lose our enthusiasm, then we are allowing the difficulties of life to bury us. We are allowing hardship to keep us from our God-given destiny, His best plans for our life, and being our best.
But if we choose to keep pressing forward with a smile on our face, rejoicing even in the hard times, we are allowing God’s character to be developed inside of us. We are setting ourselves up for promotion, God's promotion, favor and blessings in our lives. Today, don't stop believing. God hasn't brought any of us this far in our journey to drop us and He can be trusted to faithfully see us through, no matter what we're facing.
God, thank You for giving us strength to overcome every obstacle in life. We choose to rejoice no matter what may come our way for we know You are working all things together for our good and you can be trusted to faithfully see us through!
