It’s the first step in the path of my day and I see nowhere to put my foot except on the dark water… God is amazing; I see only what I need to see. “Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10)
Since God intends to make you like Jesus, he will take you through the same experiences Jesus went through. (Warren, R., 2013, p.173)
- To deal with suffering and problems in life as Jesus did remember God has a plan and that it is good. “I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
- To deal with suffering as Jesus did, we must rejoice and give thanks in the midst of it. “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
- To deal with suffering as Jesus did, refuse to give up. “Let the process go on until your endurance is fully developed, and you will find that you have become men of mature character… with no weak spots.” (James 1:3-4)
“You need to stick it out, staying with God’s plan so you’ll be there for the promised completion.” (Hebrews 10:36)
