1 Thessalonians 5:16 - 18(NIV)

Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Beloved, hardships are a fact of life. However, hardship lasts only for a season. When we're going through something really hard, at the time, it's difficult to imagine things will ever improve. And Satan considers these seasons an opportune time to whisper lies like "a loving God wouldn't allow this in your life" or "God doesn't care about you because he's not coming to your rescue." Don't believe Satan's lies. God cares. He sees. He knows. And this season in your life will end. "To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven".

Being a Christian doesn't exempt us from challenge. In fact, Jesus told us we'd have trouble in this world. Do not be angry or surprised when you encounter hardships. Instead, rejoice!

Just remember, we have the ultimate victory because of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross. For this reason, we can give thanks in spite of our circumstances.

God bless you is my prayer!

Dr. J. M. Wooten
