Each of us has perfect circumstances
for today. Dunno about tomorrow, next month/year/decade, but for right now, our circumstances are perfect for us, according to Jesus' genius plan for each of us kids of His. But NOOOOO, our human-wisdom thinks Jesus could do better by us. WRONG. Jesus has carefully crafted these circumstances, as harrrd as they may be, for our good, and His glory, to retrain us in a much-better way of living -- dependent on Him, not on our human-wisdom. Suffering produces perseverance, then character, then hope/faith/dependency.
When I struggle to believe this? CONFESS unbelief in His sovereign reign over every detail of my present circumstances -- over every detail of His genius plan for my life. Ahhh. Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus. Unconfessed sin weighs us down, robbing us of the joy and peace that's ours in Jesus.
