Life’s potholes? Life and its many pitfalls; should we be avoiding these or faithfully walking through them? God sends adversity into our lives not with the aim of getting us into trouble. Rather, he send adversity so that we might witness his willingness to defend and protect us despite the pitfalls.
Think about it. Life’s puddles are meant to be stepped in. In fact, if we see one it’s probably a good idea to aim for it. Often we feel that the path of least resistance is the better path.
God’s Word tells us: “You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and the oppressed, so that mere earthly mortals will never again strike terror.” (Psalm 10:16-18).
Least resistance? it’s not the path that Jesus walked here on earth and it not the path God has put in front of you and I either. See an adversity puddle today? Try stepping in it and find out how willing our God is to protect and how safe you are when driving through life’s potholes.
“I pray today in Jesus name that when we are confronted by life’s potholes, those challenges that seem overwhelming, we seek guidance and grace from our God, and step right in..” Amen!
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
