Seasons of Life - Logan Call
As Christians, we go through seasons of life that can vary with every individual. One moment it can be smooth sailing in our walk with Christ, and all of a sudden we are hit with persecution or tragedy. Whatever season we are in, it is important to know that God has put us there for a reason and his purpose is greater than all of our wants and desires for our life. As our seasons vary, many times it is hard to recognize how this is glorifying God, for you to go through different tragedies and heartaches. However, as we are challenged we must know that God is in control and has a higher knowledge than we can even come close to comprehending. Our omniscient God is an amazing God that is so loving and just that he will not allow us to be tempted beyond our strength.
“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13
This reference to temptation that is “common to man” shows us that Christ himself endured all temptation brought by Satan and still endured because he was in God (and is God). In this perseverance shown by Christ, we are shown exactly how to go through any troubling seasons through faith alone in God. And in all of this, God allows us to endure these seasons and temptation to mature us spiritually so that we may glorify Him even more.
