Encouragement Through Trials

I didnt know why for a time i have really been going through A LOT. I didnt know whether it was because i was doing something wrong in God’s eyes or what. I spoke to a friend yesterday and her really encouraged me by telling me that it’s not about what you did wrong in God’s eyes, it’s what you’re doing right in the enemy’s eyes. Remember he will always try to bring you down, especially when you’re doing the right thing.
Today i read from Philippians 1:14 which says

And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear.

In this passage we see Paul telling us that as he’s imprisoned, that’s helping others around him to grow a d be more confident in the gospel. He’s saying that we might be going through some tough times that feel like imprisonment and that we cant get out, but remember this passage. Paul’s saying that although we may be suffering, it can be used for someone else to get picked up and encouraged. Remember that your struggle could be the one thing that brings someone closet to God. So be as godly through your trial as you can.

Thanks for reading today, even though i wrote from my phone. :/ i hope you have a blessed day and are able to bring the Lord thanks and glory in all you do!
