“He knows the way that I take; when He has tried me, I shall come out as gold” (Job 23:10).
Child of God, do not lose heart, but learn what God is like.” Nothing will sustain the children of the Lord in hard times like knowing God’s character. You learn what God is like in the darkness of the night, when you feel overwhelmed and burdened and full of fear and uncertainty. When you feel most alone, God is nearest to you.
Get to know the Lord. Nothing matters more than this.
Ponder His patience.
Consider His ways.
Remind yourself of His goodness.
Linger at the foot of the cross. Experience His love and faithfulness.
