“Trouble and anguish have overtaken me, Yet Your commandments are my delights.”Psalms 119:143 NKJV
Trouble and anguish are a real pet of our journey with Christ. I get so sick and tired of those who preach a false gospel that is based on health and wealth. When people receive the false message of health and wealth they find their faith is bankrupt when they face trials and tribulations.
The trials and tribulation we face make us the warrior we are called to be. When they are training Navy seals they put them through excruciating training. They have a saying that says get comfortable being uncomfortable. Those who go through the training can quit at any time. But those who endure to the end have the honor of becoming Navy Seals.
We need to understand the reality of the Christian journey. It is difficult and it is hard for a reason. It teaches us to rely fully on God’s grace and brings us to a place of deep humility. It matures and refined us. The deeper we go with God, the greater the challenges we face. Stand strong in the Lord and His mighty power. Understand that you are not alone and God is preparing you for His glory.
