Life’s Challenges Require Extra Work and Faith 2

Recommended Posts

Obedience
What a leap of faith it must have been for the brother of Jared to build ships of a strange design, load his family into them, and push off into the unforgiving ocean.

Take It to the Lord
Not all plans go perfectly. The brother of Jared needed light in the vessels he built. So he asked God for help. God, in turn, told him to go figure it out. We need to work as hard as we can on our problems so that we learn the process, and grow.

Find a Way
God could have solved the problem. He could have said, “Just do this.” But it was more important for the brother of Jared to develop his problem-solving skills.

We’re here in this life to learn and grow. It would have been easier to stay in the Garden of Eden in a state of innocence. But Adam and Eve wanted to become like God, and this requires a lot of trial and error, even suffering. Although life’s challenges are difficult, they have a purpose. When we meet these challenges with faith and determination, we will be able to do more than “get through” them: we’ll be able to invite the Lord to bless us, strengthen us, and help us become better than we were. With the strength that comes from our faith, we will overcome our challenges and grow to become more like Him.
