Sometimes it seems that everything is going against us. As we face one trial after another, we think that they have to end soon, and we struggle to have patience or joy. But if we focus on the trials and difficulties that seem to pile up, we might miss opportunities that God is giving us in the middle of the chaos. Even as we struggle through trials, God gives us opportunities to be productive in service to Him; we just have to find them. And even when our trials seem to be unending, God wants us to exhibit patient endurance as we wait for Him to work. Most important is the confidence we can have that God will not abandon us even if we feel like He’s distant because He promises never to desert us or forsake us (Heb 13:5). Whatever you’re facing, keep trusting and waiting on God. He’s there and He’s using what you’re going through even if you can’t see it right now.
