We can rejoice when we run into problems ...they help us learn to be patient and patience develops strength of character in us and helps us trust God more each time we use it until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady." Romans 5:3-4
Troubles are a part of life, God does not look upon trouble quite the same way that we do. Where we see stress he sees opportunities. Where we see crisis, He sees growth and betterment. God's purpose in times of crisis and trouble is to teach us His children precious lessons. They are intended to educate, and build us up. And when we learn from them and ride out these storms of life, we will see God’s promises fulfilled. There are over 7,000 Bible promises that come directly from our Lord. So during times of trouble claim these promises as your own and look for His love which is guiding you to become the person that we are capable of being for our benefit and His glory.
