Reasons for the Storms

“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory” 2 Corinthians 4:17

You are a living epistle read by men and God’s light shines through you. If you think people are watching you now, wait until you face a difficult season in your life. The eyes of anyone within your sphere of influence will zero in wanting to see how you will respond and if you will do what you have preached all those years to them. They want to see if you will forgive those that hurt you, if you will still believe God after you have been diagnosed, if you will still serve God with passion after you’ve lost someone you love, and if you will continue to walk with God even though you don’t understand why it happened to you. This is not to sound insensitive to your pain that you may have experienced. Nor is this to infer that God did this horrible thing to you to win someone to Jesus. No, absolutely not! God is not to blame. He does however allow trials for reasons that only He knows.

Could it be that your trust and reliance upon Him in the midst of adversity is just what those around you need to see in order to know that God is real? We pray for God to save those we love, yet we do not know how He will do it. Yet, God in His infinite wisdom will allow a storm in our lives knowing that He is going to be glorified in it. God knows that your faith in Him and your resilience in the storm will do more in reaching your loved ones than anything you could ever say. Be willing then to go through it and face the adversity head on if it means the eternal salvation of those you love! It works for you a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory!

Prayer: Father, I hear you. Thank you for your comfort and for giving me understanding. In every trial I face, I count it all joy knowing that you have a greater work that you are accomplishing. I am willing to go through the storm if it means that those around me will see your light in me and come to know you for themselves. Be glorified in my life! In Jesus name, Amen.

(Read 2 Corinthians 4; 2 Corinthians 3:2; James 1:2)

    1. Thank you Mrs. Sylvia I need to read your comment this afternoon. My daughter share the devotional with me. And I always read what she sends and read comments. I’m a newbie. But my husband was a minister he did his first initial sermon in Dec 8,2018. It actually made our marriage better. Then God called him home on Aug. 20,2020. But I know he was ready. It’s strange cause when I lost my only sibling this year as well. I got closer to God. But when he took my husband. I can’t live without God. My kids always say we was during ministry but I didn’t think so I see it as you feed the hungry. Or help anyway can. Anyways I could talk all day. It’s just something about your comment that hit different.
