Psalm 30:1 KJV
I will extol thee, O Lord ; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
We may not know it, but some time in our lives we experience important breakthroughs that impact us entirely. Our perspective is changed. Our bad attitudes are molded into something better. What was once our old and sinful nature has wholly become new in Christ Jesus.
God has prepared an amazing destiny for each one of us. Life may throw us a fit and leave us wondering at how everything can be so unfair, but remember, trials, and I mean painstaking trials, are God’s little means of making us ready for His bigger plans for us.
It doesn’t matter whether you are poor, invalid, an out of school youth, a criminal – these are but skin-deep definitions of what people see and think about us. For God, we are valued. We count. We are precious in his sight.
Always remember that when you are down to nothing, God is up to something. Be ready to expect the unexpected and marvelous things he will reveal to you, in you, and through you!
