3 Ways To Know It’s a Blessing in Disguise
Sometimes things happen which we will never understand. Things like the loss of a job, the end of a relationship, or even the death of a loved one can hurt us to our core.
It’s hard to see the bright side when you’re filled with so much grief and doubt.
Whenever you go through a tough situation in your life. Here’s how you can know it’s a blessing in disguise…
1. Did it humble you?
He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way. (Psalms 25:9)
Sometimes we forget that we still need God even when things are going well in our lives. Sometimes when life is smooth sailing we stop praying as much, praising God as much, going to church as much, or start to believe that we are better than others.
I’ve personally experienced this. When I lost my job, I had to live on a strict budget. It meant going without some of the lavish things that I didn’t particularly need. I didn’t need them, but I wanted them. What I found was… that I was just fine without those things. Because of that difficult era in my life, I’ve adapted better spending habits.
In Daniel 4:28-36 we learn of how God humbled King Nebuchadnezzar. Nebuchadnezzar took credit for God’s great doings and I’m sure this angered God.
In Daniel 4:30 Nebuchadnezzar says “Is this not Babylon the great, which I myself have built as a royal residence by the might of my power and for the glory of my majesty?”
Before he could even finish those words God revoked his royal authority. God took every thing away from him and sent him to the wilderness to be alone. It wasn’t until Nebuchadnezzar humbled himself before the Lord restored Nebuchadnezzar’s kingdom.
