Day 25 – TRANSFORMED BY TROUBLE — 40 Days Purpose Driven Life Journey by Rick Warren


And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. – Roman 8:28

God uses problems to draw you closer to himself. The Bible says, “The Lord is close to the broken-hearted, he rescues those who are crushed in spirit” (Psalm 34:18). Your most profound and intimate experiences of worship will likely be in your darkest days — when your heart is broken, when you feel abandonded, when you’re out of options, when the pain is great — and you turn to God alone. It is during suffering that we learn to pray our most authentic, heartfelt, honest-to-God prayers. When we’re in pain, we don’t have the energy for superficial prayers.
