Mere Circumstances, and More

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Have the Goodie read to you!)

While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are age-lasting (II Corinthians 4:18).

The trials, severe as they may be at times, are just circumstances. Our English word “circumstance” is a compound word derived from “circum” (around; surrounding) and “stance” (to stand). Our circumstances are those things standing around us, those things which surround our walk.

We must remember that the events in our lives do not constitute who we are – they are merely the things that surround us in our walk. However, they are more than mere circumstances. Because Father has ordained them in our lives, they are thus divine circumstances. They are divine tests designed to be the pressing of Father’s hand to mold us into His grand purpose.
