“You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.” (Psalm 66:12)
It is hard to understand how a loving God would allow things to happen, that we wouldn’t want to go through. Often He allows circumstances to occur, but always for a reason, always with an outcome, and always to a place of restoration.
Tough places are by definition tough. In this scripture they went through the mill, BUT…… I love that word. How often do we see His hand in times of struggle and strife, BUT God, BUT He, BUT then. Hope in the midst of turmoil, and deliverance to a place of peace, a place of safety and a place of abundance.
Quick Prayer. “Thank you that there is an end to the tough places and a place of rest is coming.” Amen
