"We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials for we know that they are good for us----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. Then, when that happens, we are able to hold our heads hight no matter what happens and know that all is well, for we know how dearly God loves us, and we feel this warm love everywhere within us because God has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with His love." Romans 5:3-5.
What a reminder to me to praise the Lord when the problems come because we know they are for our good. I hope we can all see that and learn to rejoice in Him through the trial. Lets do like our examples in scripture and begin praising Him in the middle of our issue and see Him work in a mighty way as we praise Him. He goes before us to fight our battles. Lets just make the enemy real mad as he seeks to destroy us, by singing a new song to our Father who rescues us each and every time from the enemies clutches. He allows us to go through just long enough for us to learn the lesson He has for us and to accomplish His purpose.
As I look out my window at the beauty of the snow I see Him marching through the tops of the trees. It is action---He has arisen from His throne to go forth in victory on our behalf. Lets revel in that as we are once again snowed in. He is calling you closer dear friend. Take the opportunity to rest in Him, without complaint. Be content where He has you!
