There is reason to be sad, but there is a greater reason not to be. Why? Because the JOY of the Lord is our STRENGTH, the bible says in James 1:2-3, “Count it all joy, my brethren, when you meet various trials, for you know that the testing of your Faith produces steadfastness”. God sometime uses trials to test our faith when preparing us for a greater glory. That is why true believers always put their trust in God no matter the situation. That is, in good time and hard times, Glory to God! In sorrow and happiness, Glory to God! In rejection and acceptances, Glory to God!!
Are we now going to slur God because a building collapsed? No and God forbid, God allow whatever He wants, He is a mysterious God and does as He wishes. Isaiah 55:8-9 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
We may not understand why God allow some certain things to happen; God may allow us go through certain life challenges for a reason He knows best. That’s why true believers don’t blaspheme when bad things happen to others instead, they pray for them and show them love; Love is the greatest!
Definitely, the enemies will always be after our mistakes to attack us and our foes will always be after our bad news to speak out the evil in their mind. But all we have to say is, trouble may endure for a night, but Joy comes in the Morning.
No matter how ugly our present circumstances may look like, God’s promise will surely come to pass. in Jeremiah 29:11 the word of God says “for I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope”. Hallelujah…., this means our future and destiny is secured in Christ Jesus, what else have we to say-Glory to God in the highest!!! No matter what the situation may look like, that heavenly Joy the world cannot give will always remain in our hearth.
