It’s been a really tough couple of weeks physically for me. God is graciously giving me a lot to do with Him, but it’s hard to see the grace in how difficult He is allowing it to be. Can you relate?
Ever had prayers – conversations with God – that were tough to have?
Paul said, “I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining (experientially even in the midst of trial) to the resurrection from the dead.” – Phil. 3:10-12
So, here’s my tough prayer today…
I love you, Lord, and I want to know you in “this” – the very thing I wish I wasn’t in to begin with.
I don’t know the solution to my current problem, I couldn’t solve it even if I knew what the solution was, and I don’t know how You, Abba, should solve it for me. I just choose to trust that You will do what only You know to do and what only You can do, and ask that I can get to know You better through it.
Help me shift my focus from what I want “FROM this” to knowing you “IN this” today. And be glorified by your grace – whether getting me out of it or getting me through it – by your indwelling Presence. You’re enough.
