Trust the Process

We have all experienced tough times in our lives.  At times we feel like we have victory over sin, suffering and great communication with God.  But, there are those times where we feel defeated, feel lost, afflicted and silence from God.  It is at this time that we question the process.

We need to remember that the process of sanctification, to be set apart as God’s child, does not happen overnight nor is it a smooth road.

Tough times in our lives lead to inner conversations with God about the purpose of why we have down times.  Even though it may seem that we are questioning whether or not God is working in us for the good, the Bible reminds us that we can trust the process of sanctification (1Thessalonians 5:23) knowing that God will complete the work He has begun in us (Philippians 1:6).

Remember that sanctification is a team effort according to Hebrews 10:24-25.  So, are you doing your part to help lift up your brethren and are you allowing your brethren to lift you up?

Hebrews 10:14 tells that Christ has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified.

Walk with your head held high knowing that God is in control and He has never failed to keep a promise.  The righteous have never nor will they ever be forsaken by God.
