Being under the mighty hand of God is confusing, because we do not quite understand what is happening to us. Our lives seem hard for no reason. The constant struggles leave us spent and depressed. But, as we are humbled or brought low, God is preparing us for the exaltation of blessings he has arranged for our lives. If we endure the process without breaking or rebelling, we will be elevated to new levels of love, strength, and abundance.
