There  is a bigger picture

2 Corinthians 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.”

God’s way of rejuvenating your spirit is totally different compared to the way the world chills out. People of the world flush out huge money to go for a few days vacation in a resort nestled in the midst of a vast space of land with trees all around. Living in a world where your life is jam-packed with activities and agenda, such places are means to come in wrung-out and go chilled-out. However, the bliss and ecstasy of the trip is lost the moment you step into the frantic world only to look for the next vacation. Most of the thrill is lost, the moment the bill comes to your hand. Now let me compare it with God’s ways of energizing you, which stirs you up and triggers you to jump up and face the world. Now this joy is not going to leave you so easily! You have the energy in the midst of problems, in the midst of disease, failure or loss. The joy of the Lord becomes your strength! God in your life can offer you a whole load of joy than what these ‘beach resorts’ offer you, not to mention the hole that they make in your pocket. You may not have the swimming pool, luxurious rooms or the plush green gardens to take a stroll in the evening; yet you can sing in the dark. Ask Joseph and he would tell us how!

I tell you, it was no small pain when Joseph was falsely accused and thrown into the prison. The pain must have been deeper for Joseph because he was already a victim of being mercilessly separated from his dad, family, home land and now serving as a slave in an Egyptian house. Why should Joseph go through such harassment and persecutions? For a greater purpose! Did he come out of the prison as a wretched man for having been thrown into the prison for no reason and being forgotten for 13 long years? Certainly not, he came out with anointing to give the interpretation of the dream to the pagan monarch Pharaoh! He did not come out as a dejected man but came out with the power of God! Let me assure you that it is possible, even in your own life, if you put your faith and life into God’s Hands.

The key is to remember that God is in control of all things and at all times! When you remember this and put your trust in God; you will know that there is a bigger picture, and you will be filled with hope and confidence.
