If God is just, why does He permit evil in our world? Jesus touched on this deep question with a simple parable in Matthew 13:24–30 and 36–43. While God doesn’t reveal all His mysteries, He does give us a glimpse into His motives and ways.

Read 2 Corinthians 4:8–12

During adversity, we can easily lose perspective. We can act like Chicken Little, who thought the sky was falling when an acorn conked him on the head! Life can catch us off guard and we can quickly overreact to our situation.

Try putting yourself and your own circumstances and trials into Paul’s constant affirmations of faith.

If anyone should’ve sounded the “sky is falling” alarm it was the Apostle Paul. But his words demonstrate a different perspective on hard times:

We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies. Yes, we live under constant danger of death because we serve Jesus, so that the life of Jesus will be evident in our dying bodies. So we live in the face of death, but this has resulted in eternal life for you. (2 Corinthians 4:8–12)

You may have read Paul’s words just now and thought to yourself, “That sounds like the week I’ve just had!” Or perhaps, on a more serious note, you are literally facing death and possibly the end of your days. Please don’t miss what God intends for you. He wants you to lean into your trials and in that leaning find your strength and courage in Him. Jesus has been there...and in more painful and deeper ways than you can imagine. So even in death, His life can shine in us for His glory. Let it shine, let it shine!

The Biblical Basis for Encouragement

The family of God is not a place for verbal putdowns, sarcastic jabs, critical comment, and harsh judgments. We get enough of that from the world. This is a place we need to assemble for the purpose of being encouraged.

A positive attitude is based on a choice, not on feelings. Too often we make our attitude the victim of our feelings and think we can have a positive attitude only when we feel positive.

I believe one reason we fail to exercise grace in our relationships is because we don’t view people as they actually are. Instead, we look at them through the lens of how they hurt us, or our prejudices, or past experiences.

Painful or pressing conditions quickly reveal our internal battles. These struggles are not usually between what is good or bad, right or wrong, but between our desires and God’s will.
