Blessed with Difficulties

Today I flipped the Adrian Rogers calendar that I had gotten from my dad's house on top of my fridge. I don't do it often so I moved it from 3/10 to 3/16. I think that when I had moved it to 3/10 I had changed it from some time in January.

Anyway, I really appreciated what it had to say and wanted to record it here as a reminder:

"In the crucible of His wisdom and in the ecology of His grace, God has ordered some trouble for you today. And everyday of your life. We've been blessed with difficulties. Yes, you read right, blessed! The worst thing that could happen to us, would be not to have any difficulties. If that were the case, we'd never know our need of the Lord. So God, in essence, says, 'I'm going to give you sufficient difficulty for the day.' God gives you enough difficulty to draw you close to Him, but then God gives you enough grace to meet those difficulties every day.

"Is there a difficult circumstance in your life? If so, thank God for sending it your way to make you more like Jesus. Now, ask for His grace to be victorious through it!"
