Devotionals Daily: A Year with Jesus


From Jesus Calling® for Kids by Sarah Young

Troubles into Triumph

...always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. —Ephesians 5:20

Don’t try to run away from the problems in your life. Those problems aren’t just random mistakes. They are blessings in disguise. And I can use them to make your faith stronger. So instead of worrying about problems, see them as a chance to trust Me more.

When you start to feel stressed, that is a sign that you need My help. And it’s okay to need My help—I created you to need Me. This world idolizes those who don’t seem to need help from anyone. But in My kingdom I bless those who come to Me and ask for My help. As you practice trusting Me, you will see that I have the Power to turn problems into possibilities and troubles into triumphs.

So when a problem comes your way, be thankful. And let that problem lead you into a closer relationship with Me.
