THE VIEW FROM THE END

READ:
Deuteronomy 8:1-3,11-16

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
-Romans 8:28

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
2 Chronicles 19-20
John 13:21-38

Over the course of one year, Richard LeMieux’s lucrative publishing business collapsed. Soon, his wealth disappeared, and he became depressed. Eventually, LeMieux began to abuse alcohol and his family deserted him. At the lowest point in his life, he was homeless, broken and destitute. However, it was during this time that he turned to God. He later wrote a book about what he learned.
The Israelites learned some valuable spiritual lesson when God allowed them to endure homelessness, uncertainty, and danger. Their hardships humbles them (Deuteronomy 8:1-18).
They learned that God would provide for their needs. When they were hungry, He gave them manna. When they were thirsty, He gave them water from a rock. God taught them that, despite difficult times, He could bless them (v.1).
Finally, the Israelites learned that adversity is not a sign of abandonment. Moses reminded them that God had been leading them throughout their 40 years in the wilderness (v.2).
When we encounter desperate times, we can look for the spiritual lessons embedded in our difficulties – lessons that can help us rely on the One who causes all things to work together for our good and for His glory (Romans 8:28). – Jennifer Benson Schuldt
Dear God, please give me the faith to believe that You can bring good out of any situation. Help me to see what You want to show me during adversity.

The clearest view of everything that happens comes from heaven.
