1.God knows exactly what you need, even during your darkest trials.
God is an incredible provider. There are countless verses in Scripture that refer to the ways that God provides for us. Philippians 4:19 says, “My God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” God never gives us what He knows would harm us.
His desire is to help us develop Christlikness so that we become salt and light in the world. God distinguishes between our wants and our needs, and He is concerned with every part of our being. God provides for us beyond anything we can ask or imagine.
He uses the tough times to not only shape, but also transform our lives. We can trust His guidance, goodness and care to do more for us than we could ever do on our own. Here are six ways God will provide in troubled times.
We should see the challenges and trials we face as God’s divine way of preparing us for greater heights. When you’re going through troubled times, God often puts someone in your path that can assist you through your trial period by lending you emotional support.
If you close yourself off from the world, it may be hard for you to see that God is putting someone in front of you to help you, and also working through that person to get you through the situation you’re facing. However, when you open yourself up, this person can guide you in lifting yourself up out of the pit.
3.Inspiring Great Ideas
When you’re going through troubled times, it can be frustrating. Life can feel unpredictable and out of your control. During this trial period, God can inspire some really great ideas on ways to turn your life around.
For example, if you’re currently stressed about being unemployed, God may inspire you to think of new and creative ways to produce additional income, while also channeling your talents.
You can begin by making a list of services needed by people around you and a find a way to make yourself useful in those areas.
This may be a test by God to humble you, while also helping you to grow. Trusting in God, along with having a positive mindset will help you to think outside of the box and transform your life.
