Life does seem difficult some days. The key question is “Am I doing what God said”? If so, I should take the difficulties in stride. I can trust him that He knows what He is doing.

It is His plan, not mine. He knows what He is doing even if it isn’t clear to me.

God has a goal in mind for me. Believing that keeps us on track. Not seeing that can allow us to drift, thinking there is no plan.

He just has me doing random things, we think. There is nothing random about God. He is always intentional.

I can trust Him. He will keep on doing it.

So if you find life difficult because you’re doing what God said, take it in stride. Trust him. He knows what he’s doing, and he’ll keep on doing it. | 1 Peter 4:19 (NIV)

Here are the key ideas:

  1. God has a goal with a plan in mind for us.
  2. We need to understand that plan.
  3. We need to act on that plan.
  4. We should expect that there will be difficulties along the way.
