Friday, June 15th: 2 Kings 1-3; 1 Thessalonians 5 ~ Emma
Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is 2 Kings 1-3; 1 Thessalonians 5
Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage: 2 Kings 4-6; 2 Thessalonians 1
“Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”
- 1 Thessalonians 5:18
This verse has always been a bit of a struggle for me. Trusting God through difficult circumstances is hard enough, but thanking Him for them? That seems impossible.
And yet, “with God, all things are possible.” So we need to thank Him in all circumstances. He works in mysterious ways, ways that we could never understand. Maybe that difficult circumstance you’re going through is leading you into great things. Or maybe, it’s not even for you, but for someone else to come to know Christ through you. You never know what God will make happen in your life. He is always “working things together for the good of those who love Him.” So trust Him and thank Him in all circumstances. He is good.
