DAY 16 MARCH 2022 – THE BUTTERFLY UNIVERSITY! WHEN GOD ALLOWS THE PAIN – II
Welcome! Don’t forget the devotional story of yesterday! In a bid to help the young butterfly to fly, a passerby destroyed the destiny potential of the butterfly and “crippled” it! In this year 2022, you must always remember that life is a cycle of happiness, sadness, hard times, and good times. If you are going through hard times, have faith that good times are on the way (See Ecclesiastes 3 later).
Sometimes, train the children to confront their battles and win. Don’t be broken hearted when you see them going through one challenge or the other! It was allowed by God for their better tomorrow! Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines! Listen to Les Brown: “When life knocks you down, try to land on your back. Because if you can look up, you can get up.”
The Holy Ghost wants you to know that you cannot triumph without struggles. He is telling me to inform you that in 2022, as you look to Him, you will NEVER be broken by battles because His GRACE will be multiplied. The Lord says you must never take your eyes from Him like Peter did! The storms of life become sinkers when you focus on them! Hear Louisa May Alcott: “I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.”
Live like that this year! I love Betsey Johnson: “Hard times always lead to something great.” Never forget that! Hear Joel Osteen: “You’re going to go through tough times – that’s life. But I say, ‘Nothing happens to you, it happens for you.’ See the positive in negative events.” When God allows that unpleasant circumstance, it’s because something new is about to happen (Vs. 19 of today’s scripture)! Hold on and hold out!
