God is most up-close and personal during times of hardship.
Life can be so difficult. It brings problems, challenges, and pain. As God’s own, we often wonder why we must endure such adversity. We ask, “Why doesn’t God remove troubles from the Believer’s life? One reason is so that we may know and love Him.
God longs to have an on-going, intimate, love relationship with you. He knows you and He longs for you to know Him. The more we know Him the more we will love Him. Sometimes this process calls for difficult days.
It’s when we need comfort that He becomes our comforter. When we are weak, He becomes our source of strength. When others let us down, He proves to be faithful. God becomes more than enough when we recognize He is all we need.
God doesn’t allow hardships in our lives to cause us undue pain but to draw us close to Him, to know Him and to experience Him in a way that we come to trust Him and His plan for our lives.
