Day 2 - God Speaks Through Circumstances
God works in His time and for His purposes. If we try to look at the circumstance from our perspectives we will always become confused and frustrated. When we face difficult or confusing circumstances, rather than become discouraged, we need to be looking for the ways that God is accomplishing His purposes.
The story the author told in the workbook was when his young daughter was having to endure cancer treatments. They chose to seek the perspective of God through the Holy Spirit and the Word. Many, many people and groups began to pray and about half way through the treatments she was completely cancer free!! The answer to prayer was for many of the prayer groups a way that God used to renew their prayer lives. God spoke to many through these circumstances!
John 5:17 Jesus said to them, "My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working."
God is always at work even when we face difficult circumstances. Will you choose to be discouraged, or give Him the glory?
