Reading Verse: Leviticus 16:1-34
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
Nobody likes rainy season, but some people welcome this season happily. But, the important point here is that there will be a beautiful rainbow after rain stops. It shows that a period in life will change over time. Sometimes we experience joy, sorrow, success or victory, and other times we experience hardship. But in those dark moments, never give up. Keep moving forward facing the problems because at the perfect time God will help and eventually the rainbow of His love will appear. Do you remember that all things have their own time? We’ve got to survive and become strong; never get easily tossed by problems. Our lives don’t remain in dark clouds forever, because after the rain there will be a beautiful rainbow. God will reveal it for us.
Similarly while we are going through a process, endure and become strong in God because behind the process there is a beautiful plan of God that will be revealed for us. Like in the story of Joseph, it wasn’t pleasing at all when he was dumped by his brothers. But behind the test that he had to go trhough, he saw God’s favor in the end. Joseph didn’t experience hardship forever. So keep in mind that God will always give the best. So walk through every process because this is the way to mature our faith. Remember that without a process our faith will not grow. When there is no rain, there is no rainbow. So keep your spirit up in living this life.
We have to be able to firmly live every period of this life and never quit as no matter what happens, God is always there. He always works to bring goodness for us. In times of troubles, always remember God’s promises because His promises are the strength for us and His promises never fail. In life, God never makes a promise that days will be hot all the time without rain. One thing for sure, He will always give us strength when a problem comes, and He always gives the best way out. Behind the rain there is a beautiful rainbow of His love.
Never give up but remain strong in God since He is the source of victory. Amen.
