Topic: Trouble is Transportation
The LORD directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?
Proverbs 20:24, NLT
Joel Osteen Daily Devotional 8th July 2020 Message:
When troubles come our way, it’s easy to get discouraged, but God uses difficulties to move us toward our destiny. You won’t become all you were created to be without trouble. You don’t grow in the good times; you grow in the tough times, the dark times. Trouble prepares you for the next level. Trouble develops something in you that you can’t get when it’s easy and everything is going your way. In the difficult times, your spiritual muscles are developed, and you gain strength, endurance, and wisdom.
Every challenge you’ve been through has deposited something in you. Through every relationship that didn’t work out, through those times when somebody did you wrong, you gained insight. The times when you failed, when you blew it weren’t wasted—you gained experience that will transport you in the future. The truth is that trouble was transportation. It was all a part of God’s plan.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You are the Most High God who is directing my steps. Thank You that the difficulty I’m experiencing now is developing something in me that I can’t get when it’s easy. I believe it is transporting me to the next level of my destiny. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
