When life gets rough...
I came across this meme on my Facebook stream today.
On the one hand, I understand it's intent, "trust God" when things go wrong in life. On the other hand, I feel it's a little too "prosperity gospelish", meaning yes, God will pull us through difficult situations, but does it have to be BETTER than before as it says here?
I'm not saying that the resolution won't be better, but that's up to God and God alone. His will be done. We need to trust in our Lord and Savior during these times, look to Him for strength, and not have any preconceived notions about the outcome.
If God decides to give us something better than what we had before, then great. If not, then He wanted us to learn something from it, and strengthen our faith through it.
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." (Isaiah 41:10)
