Remember when you’re lacking in health, money or time, it’s not a sign that God is against you, that you’ve sinned or that something bad is coming your way. He doesn’t reciprocate your sin by cursing and hurting you. If He did, then the cross would be in vain and His grace would be worthless. Even in barren seasons, He loves you and He wants to bless you.
A time of material loss is simply a temporary opportunity for a permanent gift. We all have moments in our lives when things go wrong and we lose something that we hold dear, whether health, money, a job or a relationship. In the Kingdom of God, trials are always temporary and in their duration, He gives us something far greater – treasures in Heaven. You see, heavenly treasure is not just gained when we die, it’s for today, too. Every setback is an opportunity to learn more about Jesus and to obtain something far greater.
In our Father’s world, things always happen for a reason and no season of loss is without a purpose — one that we discover when we keep our eyes focused on Jesus, the author, and perfecter of our faith.
