Perhaps you are undergoing some trial as God's child, and you are saying to Him, O God, it is raining very hard on me today, and this test seems beyond my power to endure. Disappointments are pouring in, washing away and utterly defeating my chosen plans.
Dear friend, you are completely mistaken. God is not raining rain on you - He is raining blessings. If you will only believe your Father's Word, you will realize that springing up beneath the pounding rain are spiritual flowers. And they are more beautiful and fragrant than those that ever grew before in your stormless and suffering-free life.
No, my friend, it is not raining afflictions on you. It is raining tenderness, love, compassion, patience, and a thousand other flowers and fruit of the blessed Holy Spirit. And they are bringing to your life spiritual enrichment that all the prosperity and ease of this world could never produce.
Coach's tip - There is fine line between self-preservation and self-indulgence.
