When I need to see how challenges will shape me. O Lord, thankyou for your Word, the TRUTH. I don’t know about you, but myself, I see my struggles through the lives of people in the Bible. I am truly encouraged by the example of Paul, whose goal to preach the gospel in new places continually brought him fresh challenges. While difficult, those trials clearly caused greater growth in his relationship with you…..Lord, what do you want me to learn from the challenges that come my way? Please show me how to step out in faith so that I can move closer to you. May the struggles I face cause me to follow your leading into uncharted waters, and may I learn to trust you more and more. Then I know I will be accomplishing your unique purpose for me. Thank you for showing me that it is often through challenges that you make your plan clear to me.
1Chronicles 28:20-Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don’t be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God…is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
