Sometimes things don't go our way. We are thrown into difficult situation. It is easier to complain and grumble. But time and experience tell us not to.
We quietly continue our daily routines. Sometimes surprise ourselves with treat or favor. But inwardly we desire the trial to go away, and we are made to understand why.
Philip might have wondered why God pulled him off an assignment in Samaria (Acts 8:4-8) and plopped him in the middle of the desert. But then he discovered that the Ethiopian needed help understanding the Scriptures, and his place made sense.
God promised never to leave us alone (Hebrews 13:5), whether in good times or in bad times. Let us continue to serve Him and wait for Him to accomplish His purpose in our life.
