“I meet many believers who feel “stuck” in life. Tragically, they fail to see the larger picture of the transforming work God seeks to do in them at their “wall”. The pain of their circumstance blinds them. And they feel unsuccessful in finding other companions for such a journey. What most don’t understand is that growth into maturity in Christ requires us to go through the Wall. “
On our journey with God we will face hard times. These hard times could either “make us or break us”. Jesus wants to use the “storms” of life to increase and mature our faith in Him.
1 Peter 1:6-7
6 In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7 These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
