Turn Care Into Prayer

After an experiment failed, Lord Kelvin said to his students, “Gentlemen, when you are face to face with a difficulty, you are up against a discovery.” This is true not only in learning but also in living.
David was face to face with a difficulty and he came upon a discovery.
If it had not been for David’s pains there would not be many of the Psalms. These treasures came out of his trials. He went from strength to strength because he went from struggle to struggle.
The person who has no trials has no triumphs. Joseph’s prison was the path to the palace. If he had not become Egypt’s prisoner, he would not have become Egypt’s prime minister. Even Job’s boils became his blessings.
And in heaven there are no crown wearers who were not cross bearers on earth.
Are you in distress? It is not to overwhelm you but to grow you. Turn care into prayer and your trials will become your triumph.
Prayer: Lord, thank You that I can come to You when I am overwhelmed with trouble. Thank You that You listen to me. Help me, Lord, to give my trials to You: in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Scripture for Today: Psalm 4:1 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
