When the Lord’s path for you is hard

When you have lost a job, your thoughts can be dominated with worry about replacing the lost income. Resentment can grow toward those who fired you or laid you off. We have to work extra hard to remember that, even if the Lord’s path for us leads through extreme difficulty, it’s still his path for us. The ones who sent us down the path were merely tools of his sovereign will. We keep in mind the Philippians 4 admonition to be content “in whatever circumstances,” and we keep revisiting this passage in Hebrews:
“Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, ‘I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.’ So we can say with confidence, ‘The LORD is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?’” (Hebrews 13:5-6 NLT)
