But not only that, let us also boast in our troubles; because we know that trouble produces endurance, endurance produces character, and character produces hope; and this hope does not let us down, because God’s love for us has already been poured out in our hearts through the Ruach HaKodesh who has been given to us.
It is easy to worship Adonai when we are living well, but it is those times of trials that shape us in our trust in Him. As Sha’ul wrote if we can endure through the hard times, then the character of our witness for Adonai improves and with it the ability to give others hope to build trust in Adonai. All this is possible by confessing our sins and accepting Yeshua’s sacrifice so that the Ruach indwells and strengthens us. Abba thank You for a path of salvation. Thank You for Your love of us. Thank You, God, for You, amen.
