Scriptures: Psalm 71:20-21 20You have allowed me to suffer much hardship, but you will restore me to life again and lift me up from the depths of the earth. 21You will restore me to even greater honor and comfort me once again. (NLT)
Nugget: We will definitely experience challenges & hardships in life; there’s no way to go through life without them. Some of these will be brought upon by our own actions & other times, God will allow us to go through things in order to develop something in us--strength, faith, trust, etc. But once these challenges end, we most times recognize the purpose for them.
Don’t see your challenges & hardships as things you won’t be able to overcome; see them as God’s way of developing something in you & using these as a way to restore you to even greater things to come. Sometimes we can’t make it to the next level without conquering where we are now.
