Too often we find ourselves exchanging the broader perspective of seeking God with seeking our own personal comfort when tragedy strikes. And, some have gone as far as giving up on God entirely in a storm. It’s impossible to know why God allows certain bad things to happen. However, if we always knew why we had to suffer, our faith wouldn’t have room to grow.
1. How have you handled the storms of life? Do you seek personal comfort, or seek God’s will?
2. How can you strengthen your faith in order to prepare for the storms of life?
Challenge: Ask God to provide opportunities that will help strengthen your faith in Him.
