2 Corinthians 4:7-16

God can use my unwelcome seasons to strengthen my faith.

So we do not lose heart. Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day. – 2 Corinthians 4:16 (NRSV)

I was driving my daughter home from school when we got stuck in traffic due to road maintenance work. I was in a hurry, so I complained: “What have they done to the road? They’ve dug such big holes that we can’t even get through.” In response to my complaints, my daughter asked, “Mama, if they don’t dig and break the road, then how will they make it new?”

This statement made me think about how similar our Christian life is.

When we go through difficult situations and unwelcome seasons, we feel broken and shattered. In those moments we often question God. We forget that in our brokenness, God can mold and shape us and ultimately bring us back to the path we need to be on. God will rebuild us even stronger than before. Our experiences can then become a testimony so that others may also have hope. Even when it feels like we are being broken, God is always building us up.

O God, make us into the people you want us to be. When we feel broken, give us hope as we pray, “Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread. Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation” (Luke 11:2-4, NIV). Amen.

PRAYER OF SALVATIONA MINUTE PRAYER COULD SAVE YOU “O Lord God, I believe with all my heart in Jesus Christ, Son of the living God. I believe He died for me and God raised Him from the dead. I believe He’s alive today. I confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is the Lord of my life from this day. Through Him and in His Name, I have eternal life; I’m born again. Thank you Lord for saving my soul! I’m now a child of God. Hallelujah!” Congratulations! You are Born Again... Get closer to God by reading your BIBLE and worshiping with other believers.
