God Is at Work in Us Through the Trials of Life

God is actively at work in us, even in the circumstances of life that we may dread the most. Do not be discouraged. Do not fret. Trust Him there. Rest fully and confidently in His work.

“And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience” (Romans 5:3).

“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory” (II Corinthians 4:17).

The God who works “all things after the counsel of His own will” finds no challenge with the circumstances and details of life – not even the hard ones. Nothing poses an obstacle to Him – after all, He is the Almighty God.

Therefore, there is nothing that comes our way that God does not take and make an instrument of His work in our lives. Regardless of what comes our way our Father can work them together for good. After all He is the Master Workman, and we are His Master-piece.

“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” (Romans 8:28).
