Surf’s Up

By October 12, 2018August 10th, 2021Day 21

As I was reading through a You Version devotional from Oswald Chambers’ My Utmost For His Highest, I came across the following paragraph:

“Huge waves that would frighten an ordinary swimmer produce a tremendous thrill for the surfer who has ridden them.  Let’s apply that to our own circumstances.  The things we try to avoid and fight against – tribulation, suffering, and persecution – are the very things that produce abundant joy in us.  ‘We are more than conquerors through Him’ ‘in all these things’; not in spite of them, but in the midst of them.  A saint doesn’t know the joy of the Lord in spite of tribulation but because of it.  Paul said, ‘I am exceedingly joyful in all our tribulation’ (2 Corinthians 7:4).”

How does this shape your attitude towards the difficulties you are facing today?
