During my Quiet Time this morning I read Leviticus 14:34

That passage says, God sometimes purposefully makes people sick? What it actually means is that God allows illness to come on certain people.

Doesn’t sound like a loving God does it? But really, it is because God uses times like this to make us better people. Everything God does is for our good – Romans 8:28

And this made me realize that if we focus on our current circumstances or problems, we may miss God’s hand on our life. We miss the opportunities God gives us to grow and become stronger.

Do you hate difficulty or trouble or sickness? Or do you see it as an opportunity to become the kind of person God wants you to be?

Let’s not focus on our problems but let’s focus on God’s love towards us, even in the midst of trials.

What are you focussing on today?
