Devotion

Go Through
(2 Corinthians 1:8-9) We do not want you to be uninformed brothers and sisters, about the troubles we experienced in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. Bu this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.

We can prepare for the unexpected, even if we don't know when to expect it. When it comes and does what it does, we need to assess the circumstances before making any drastic decisions. Our original plans do not go into default because the unexpected occurs. When we seek God for answers, He has a way about Him that helps us to 'accept the things we cannot change, change the things that we can, and have wisdom enough to know the differene'’. And in that serenity (which greatly depends on our attitude during the process) we will see how God will use the unexpected to equip our character with what we need to accomplish our plans. We don't need to feel pressured in finding a way around all the unexpected pop-ups in life. Sometimes they are meant for us to 'go through' in order for us to get what is meant for our good.
