God never said it was going to be easy. Salvation is not salvation from problems, it is the blessing to go through them. When we trust God and follow His guidance, we actually avoid problem areas, but not all of them.
Living with the Holy Spirit in us helps us be unaffected by the traffic jams because patience is active in our lives. The wisdom of God is there to give us the perfect answer when everyone is stumped. Faith keeps us from losing hope when every appliance in the house blows up at the same time.
The blessings of God aren’t all about getting shiny presents. They are practical tools that help us through life with joy, no matter what happens. It doesn’t matter if the stock market crashes or you get a flat tire, God has given you the means to get through it, and show His goodness in the process.
Stay in His presence. Listen to His voice, and humbly/boldly go before His throne. When you stay connected to Him, you are prepared for everything. It may not be easy, but you will be safe. If you don’t panic, He’ll give you what you need when you need it. He’s a good God and He is with you.
