We have all heard the expression, “You cannot see the forrest for the trees!” As Christians, we experience this when we cannot seem to see God’s bigger plan for our lives because we are so focused on the problem right in front of us. After Boris Vujicic’s son Nick was born without arms or legs, Boris never imagined that God would use Nick to have a global impact for Christ. Slowly, God would lead him from worry to wonder! Boris shares this lesson with us today:
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” If you are facing a difficult situation today in your day to day life, take courage! Pray to God and give thanks, knowing that He will be faithful even as you are faithful to do His will. These truths are a solace to us as we are patient to one day see God’s bigger picture for our lives, turning difficult situations into blessings!
