Transforming Your Pain Into Purpose
To Believe is the Highest Thing
When you face a crisis, seek counsel from someone who has faced a similar challenge. Ask friends to pray. Look for resources. Reach out to a support group. Most importantly, make a plan.
You'd prefer a miracle for your crisis? You'd rather see the bread multiplied or the stormy sea turned to glassy calm in a finger snap? God may do this. Then again, he may tell you, "I'm with you. I can use this for good. Now, let's make a plan." Trust him to help you. God's sovereignty doesn't negate our responsibility. Just the opposite. It empowers it. When we trust God, we think more clearly and react more decisively.
Trust God to do what you can't. Obey God and do what you can.
