Be encouraged today that you are exactly where God wants you to be! I want to challenge you to trust the process you are in as part of the journey! This thought may be hard to believe at times, especially when things are hard in our lives. However, God promises us that he will use everything for His glory if we let Him. If we are believers God tells us in:
Romans 8:28, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
So as a believer we can trust God and know that part of growing into the children of God that He created us to be, means the journey we are on is a process. A process that takes time. A process that has to take place for us to get to the destination God has for us.
Many times when we don't see the bad things going on in our lives as anything God is a part of, He shows us later how He was with us through the whole thing. God teaches us on our journey towards Him to follow His example, and by choosing to do so we allow ourselves and the others in our lives the opportunity to do the same. It is the sin we have all been born into that makes bad things happen in our lives. But it is the grace and mercy we show others with forgiveness and love that makes us stronger and shows God through us. It is this example of God in and through us that allows others to not only see God more clearly, but for God to use everything for good to bring hope and restoration.
So the next time you doubt the path you are on, first make sure you are choosing God's path, and then trust the process. Because through this process is where we find sanctification!
Is this you?
