A Precious Gift

We may not understand our trials but Vaneetha Rendall Risner says it is important to remember that “the men and women in the Bible couldn’t see how God was using their lives and their struggles either. They lived day to day, as we do, disappointed, waiting, and wondering why their lives were so hard. Yet God used their pain for something more glorious than they could have imagined.” We know their complete stories, but the men and women in the Bible didn’t know if/when their trial was going to end. We don’t know when our trials are going to end either, but “the incomparable presence of God in our pain underscores that a day with him in trial is better than a thousand pain-free days elsewhere”.
