Who am I?

Do you ever ask the question, "Who am I" or "Why am I here"? We tend to ask these questions when we are going through troubles and when everything seems to be going wrong.  As i was reading in Job this morning, he continued to ask the question "why", when he started going through all of his troubles. God knew that Job would continue to serve him and follow him despite all of his troubles and trials, and that's what he wanted everyone to see. We all tend to ask the quetion "why" over and over again when we are facing difficulties.

God clearly speaks to us in Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans i have for you, plans to prosper you not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future". God has a plan for everything we are going through. Whether it is to test our faith and trust in him, to teach us a lesson, or to grow our relationship with him, he will never allow any of it to hurt us or harm us.

God will bless us abundantly if we continue to serve him and follow him through all of our trials and tribulations.  Will you allow God to grow you through your troubles today?
