Complete Faith Despite Crushing Troubles.
"We are happy to tell other churches about your patience and complete faith in God, in spite of all the crushing troubles and hardships you are going through." 2 Thessalonians 1:4
Do you know a believer who is slammed with one thing after another. I know several that are dealing with on-going, terrible health conditions. I am constantly amazed at their attitudes. They have such joy, despite their circumstances (or perhaps because of them?).
I know God works in our weaknesses. He can refine us through our troubles. And joy can be had even as the bad stuff is happening.
Today, pray for yourself, that you will have "patience and complete faith in God" no matter what comes your way. Also, pray for someone, today, who is going through a rough time. Is there anything you can do to show Christ's love to him/her?
Is there someone you know who has the "patience and complete faith" that the verse talks about?
