God’s Providence

A thought on Pastor Bobby’s sermon last weekend on the providence of God.
I heard before that a Christian should not complain about how tough his/her life is.
A Christian who wants to complain to God should first make a comparison between his/her life with Apostle Paul’s life.
Apostle Paul suffered many things (2 Cor 11:23-27):
– was flogged severely.
– was exposed to death times and again
– five times receiving 39 lashes
– was beaten 3 times with rod
– was stoned once
– was shipwrecked three times.
– was in constant danger everywhere he went
– toiled and labored without sleep
– was hungry, thirsty, cold and naked

Yet, in all these things, God preserved him and made him more than a conqueror.

My situation now is tough, really tough.
It is not as tough as his, though. So, I should not complain at all.
Nevertheless, if God can preserve him, God can (and will) preserve me.
In Christ, I am more than a conqueror too!
