Being confident of this,
that He who began a good
work in you will carry it
on to completion until the
day of Christ Jesus.
Father, I'm so delighted that you are both loving and
sovereign, and that You cause all things to work together
for good to those who love You, to those who are called
according to Your purpose. So, I thank You for each
disturbing or humbling situation in my life, for each
breaking or cleansing process You are allowing.
Thank You that each difficulty is an opportunity to
see You work...that in Your time You will bring me out
to a place of abundance. I rejoice that You plan to
enrich and beautify me through each problem, each conflict,
each struggle...that through them You expose my weaknesses
and needs. Thank You that You use trials to humble me and
perfect my faith and produce in me the quality of endurance.
I'm grateful that You look beyond my superficial desire for
a trouble-free life; instead, You fulfill my deep-down desire
to glorify You, enjoy Your warm fellowship, and become more
like Your son. Amen.
