Life can be rough. As you live, you experience trials and tribulations. The Bible says that we can expect trials (1 Peter 4:12) since we are in a world full of sin (Romans 5:12) and we interact with imperfect people. It’s important to know that even in the midst of storms that all things work for the good who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
As a child of God through Christ, we know that our eternal future is heaven (John 3:15) – to be in the presence of the Almighty Loving God. The Bible says that the Lord wants for us to have an abundant life (John 10:10). A life full of His fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), which is the result of His Holy Spirit dwelling in our heart. God does not want to harm you; His desire is to help and prosper you.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11
