Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
If you want GOD’S best for your life and desire to be used by Him, at some point you’ll have to travel the road of adversity. This means His purpose for difficulty cannot be bad, yet many Messianic Jewish Believers consider it a setback or defeat!
GOD has designed hardship to become a turning point from which we take our greatest leaps forward in spiritual growth. He allows adversity to remain in our lives only until it has enabled Him to accomplish His purpose in us. He will not let it linger one second longer than necessary. Difficulties show us where we stand in our faith! Of course we don’t actually know how much diversity we are able to endure, but GOD does! He does set a limit on our storms—establishing our threshold!
As a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear Him. For He knows our frame, He remembers that we are dust.
Next time adversity comes our way, remember this is GOD’S tool for building godly character in us. As we experience these storms of life, we are being conformed to the likeness of MESSIAH YESHUA! Count it all joy!
Love & Blessings,
