Happy Monday. What is your assignment today?
As long as we are still in this life, we are in God’s school, ever learning.
Could this be a time of “smooth sailing” and life is good? Wonderful! You can coast along, get lazy maybe.
Or, this may be graduate school time. Testing is here and can’t be avoided.
We might try to postpone it or get out of it.
That reminds me of one of my husband’s sermons (a favorite of mine) titled, “May I Change Seats Please?”
She could not, would not, because the plane was full.
She instructed him to stay in his seat and make the best of it. By the way, this sermon makes you laugh and learn
Is your question today, “May I change seats, Lord?”
There may be discomfort, fear, weakness, uncertainty, pain, and you want out.
But God, Who is our wise Teacher, says, “Stay where you are. The only way out is THROUGH. I see your situation from a different perspective.”
When these testing times come, as with Paul, we see how weak we are and we turn back to the One Who said in Isaiah 43:2:
“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee: and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned…”
We may not always be as comfortable as we might like, but it won’t keep us from our destination. We will make it…THROUGH.
