Strength Through Hard Times – Day 4

“God’s plans include seasons of trials and tribulations. Regardless, His plans are still better than ours. We can lean on our own understanding or accept that He IS the Master planer.” – #ToddCPittman

Yep, I Said It!

…and so did Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT) – “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

“This is Day 4 and our spiritual workout to strengthen us through hard times is making the devil real mad! The scriptures in our spiritual conditioning today prepares us not to be tricked into thinking that hard times means God is not real. Look, God has a plan for us and it is for our well being, not our destruction. When we feel like life is giving us a beat down, we’ve got to go back to Day 1 of this workout and remember to “…recognize that He uses our challenges in life to produce greater strength and enduring faith.” We’ve got to look at hard times as the greatest learning opportunities of all times. It’s like this, disappointment by disappointment, heartbreak by heartbreak, and setback by setback He is building our strength that will enable us to walk by faith and not by sight. In other words, when it seems like things are falling apart, He is conditioning is to stand strong with endurance, with belief, and with trust so we don’t give in to short-term suffering and not accept the fact that the long-term master architect and master strategist has co-signed on our ending before the beginning. What makes us strong is our patience, trust, and believing that He gives us strength for everything we go through.” – #ToddCPittman
