This is one of my favourite phrases in the bible. “And it came to pass.” Whenever I am going through a rough time, I remember this too shall pass! It might not look like that now because the pain of the present does hurt. But I know and believe that even though weeping endures for a night, joy will come in the morning.
The night is scary, intimidating and fearful. Your night may look like lack, loss, delay, separation, divorce, addiction, uncertainty, grief and rejection. No matter how bad it is, remember that trouble does not last forever.
“Efua, I have heard this so many times. This hurts like crazy. Where is God? How can a good God allow this?”
My friend, I have found myself in situations before when I felt this way and asked questions too. However I have come to realise that even in those moments God is still good. In the years of my life, to be honest, I have enjoyed more good days than bad days.
During the bad times, the devil always makes us forget the numerous times God has been good to us. The number of times He has come through for us. The many times He provided. The times He delivered us or a loved one from accident. The times He healed our children. The times He helped us through a very dark path. The times He used a stranger to bless us. The list is endless.
If you are feeling down today, have you thought of counting your blessings, naming them one by one? It will really open your eyes to see what God has done and is doing for you.
The God of the good times is still God in the bad times. Be encouraged.❤️🙂
