I fell for that statement once. I lost half my hotwheels to the classroom quarter flip hustler in first grade. (they were great cars too…maybe I should look him up on facebook:-) )
Here’s something to be thankful for…even if things are not exactly going well for you right now. God is the master of “Heads I win-tails you lose”. Check this verse out from the apostle Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians: (4:17)
For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they
produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!
Got problems? If you are a follower of Jesus, scripture says that they won’t last long…and they will produce benefits and growth in our lives that will be eternally valuable. Don’t have any problems right now? Awesome…there are two of you on the planet:-). All you do is win.
Actually, God wins. No matter what. We can trust him with our lives…whether our troubles are past, present, or in the future.
