Song: Necessary by Fantasia
I think I speak for many in saying there are times when life just doesn’t seem fair. Times when nothing works out as planned regardless of the planning and preparation. But, such disappointments are nothing new under the sun. The scriptures give many examples of troubles for those with God’s favor. Abram, Moses, Joseph, Jeremiah; and Jesus himself. Yet, God saw the trouble as necessary to accomplish His will.
In the midst of trials, remind yourself that if God deems it necessary, it will work out for the good of them whom love the Lord.
20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? 21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?

NECESSARY!! I needed this my emotions are every where this pain and suffering is a bit overwhelming but Necessary for elevation to next level….Lord knows I just wanna be right…made whole…Lord please make me over😢
Ms. Lakendra, I know first hand that God has given you an extremely awesome gift! I have learned to seek his face with a naked sincerity, acknowledging my sin, my struggles and being truly open to being lead by him. If the pain pushes you to draw nearer to him and further from the world….then the pain is “necessary” but it will work out for your good.
I am who I am today….Praise the Lord. It is because of Him.
In life we have many hills to climb. As human beings we want to fix them but we need to remember that God is in control and we need to give it to him and just step back. I know that is a very hard thing to do and I struggle with that often!
But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord: he is their strength in the time of trouble. Psalm 37:39
Like the saying goes “Let go and let God”!
It is hard to be still as God is working in us. For that very reason, we need a strong prayer life, a very personal relationship with God where we don’t hesitate in confessing our sins and telling God about our shortfalls…even the things we don’t want to accept, and we need to listen to him talk to us through his Word. I promise that every time I read the bible God shows me something new that I need to see or hear. And that is the beauty of a PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST! Amen!
I definitely think trials and tribulations are NECESSARY for us to grow and be stronger in our faith. I know God allows it too.
Thank you Wanda
Amen, Ms. Chan. Otherwise, I believe we grow stagnate in our spiritual growth. The trial is part of the testing, and the testing is the making that decision to follow God or lean unto our own understanding. And according to Proverbs 3:1-7, we know where that leads us!
