Life’s Challenges Can Be Lessons Learned

Romans 8:28 – And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

The Israelite’s learned some valuable spiritual lessons when God allowed them to endure danger, uncertainty and homelessness. They were humbled by their hardships. (Deuteronomy 8:1-18)

They learned that God would provide for their needs. When they were hungry, God gave them manna. When they were thirsty, God gave them water from a rock. He taught them that despite difficult times, He could still bless them. The Israelite’s also learned that adversity is not a sign of abandonment. Moses reminded them that God had been leading them throughout their forty years in the wilderness.

Something to think about: When we encounter desperate times, we can look for the spiritual lessons embedded in our difficulties that can help us rely on the One who causes all things to work together for our good and for His glory.

Prayer Starter: Dear God, please give me the faith to believe that you can bring good out of any situation. Help me to see what you want to show me during adversity…
