God’s Promises – Purpose!

Day 1933: Turning troubles into triumph!

Scriptural promise:  I can continually praise the God of all compassion and comfort as He brings purpose to my life through all of my troubles.  By experiencing God’s comfort during these times, I will be able to console others who are going through difficult situations with the comfort that God has given me.  II Corinthians 1:4, 5

Thoughts/questions:  Hard times are hard!  Brilliant, don’t you think?  But God promises to use our hard times to help others!

A contemporary Christian song’s lyrics include – ‘He was; He is; He will always be’!   He WAS; yes, the living God of the universe WAS there when you went through that horrible time.  He IS, right now He IS here to hold you and bring you through your past or current problem. He will always BE; this same God will BE there in your future to bring further healing and to bring people into your life so that you will be able to comfort others with the comfort that God has given you!

God brings purpose to everything that happens to us!  He helps us and then we can help others!

Suggested prayer: Father God, thank You for holding me during my hard times . . .
