Jacob 4:8-10 (#109)
Think of a trial you are going through currently. What “counsel from the Lord“ do you think you can take from that trial? In what way can you eventually see yourself being grateful for this trial?
8 Behold, great and marvelous are the works of the Lord. How unsearchable are the depths of the mysteries of him; and it is impossible that man should find out all his ways. And no man knoweth of his ways save it be revealed unto him; wherefore, brethren, despise not the revelations of God.
9 For behold, by the power of his word man came upon the face of the earth, which earth was created by the power of his word. Wherefore, if God being able to speak and the world was, and to speak and man was created, O then, why not able to command the earth, or the workmanship of his hands upon the face of it, according to his will and pleasure?
10 Wherefore, brethren, seek not to counsel the Lord, but to take counsel from his hand. For behold, ye yourselves know that he counseleth in wisdom, and in justice, and in great mercy, over all his works.
Sometimes you may feel to complain to the Lord about a challenge that has come into your life through no fault of your own…
God knows what is best for us. Although we may not understand why we experience some things now, in His timetable we will know and be grateful.
He has promised to help us with our burdens.
