*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
Acts 14:22 *strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,” they said.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Why me?....but why not you?
God has specially chosen you for what you are going through.
In the midst of life's serious challenges, one is hard pressed to ask "why me"?
In answering this question someone may also want to ask you "why not you"?
No one wants to go through challenges or troubles but they will come, ref Ps 46:1. Therefore it is appropriate also to ask oneself "why not me"?
The Apostle Paul tells us we should not be surprised when trouble comes. We are destined for such troubles. They will come our way. He says in 1 Thess 3:3 *That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.*
Remember always; when trouble comes, know that God allowed it for a purpose and He has specially chosen you for it.
When trouble comes, do not ask "why me"?, but ask God for His presence to overcome it.
*Call to Word action.*
Job 2:3 ► *And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Acts 9:16 *For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.*
God carefully chooses those He wishes to use, even in afflictions, Is 48:10.
If He has chosen you in affliction, He will boast of you because He knows you can overcome it. So ask for the grace.
Lord grant me Your presence in the midst of life's troubles. Give me grace to overcome, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
