Well, for those who have been in the book club, it’s the final week in my study Fruitful Affliction. Which is bittersweet to me. Mostly bitter, because I don’t like it when a study ends.
I pray that God has met with you through His Word as we’ve walked with Joseph these weeks. And I pray that you know that you know that you know that we have a God who is both sovereign and love — a God who sits secure on His throne and is able to grow fruit in our lives even in the most desolate seasons. Only He could do such a thing.
In the final video I talk about the power of Christ in our lives. Yes, we will walk through lands of affliction. We will. Until Jesus comes back, hard things will meet us on this earth. But Jesus! In Christ, we will not be destroyed. We will not be forsaken. We will not be driven to despair.
I pray that the hope of Christ would seep down deep into your bones today. He’s being good and faithful right now, right where you stand, no matter the land of affliction. Press in and press on, my friends.
Fill me, Lord…
I’d love to hear your thoughts on the study. What one thing do you want to remember?
