If we are a servant, we are a constant reflection on our master. When I am following Him and submitting to Him, life is so much less chaotic. I don’t take the credit, but I am pointing people to my master.
This doesn’t mean trouble will not come. Just the opposite! If I say I am a person of great faith but nothing bad ever happens and no one sees my faith in action, it’s useless. It’s easy to be a person of great faith when all is going well, but when things get shaken up a bit, then what happens?
Consider it all joy my friend each time a trial comes and we can point to the One Who overcame the grave and can overcome every trial we ever encounter.
Praise to the King.
from Broken: A Journey of Healing, Chapter 2: Repentance
Don’t underestimate what God can do when we come before Him broken, ready for healing. He cannot heal us until we are broken.
