‘In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity, consider: without question, God has made the one as well as the other, so that man cannot discover anything that will come after him.’
The one thing that each of us have in common is that we have no idea what the future holds. Life is full of joyous occasions. In these times we are able to laugh, smile, and rejoice. Life is also full of difficulty. It is in these times that we feel empty and confused. What is important for us to remember is that God has made both. He has made the times of rejoicing as well the times of advesity. Solomon tells us the reason for this is so that man cannot discover anything about his future. We have today. We may be on the mountain today, and tomorrow find ourselves in the worst of valleys. In the joyous times I must thank Him, love Him, and always trust Him. In the times of adveristy I must thank Him, love Him, and always trust Him. God holds our future in His hands. We are given one day, one season at a time. What we must remember is that the same God that allows the difficulty also blesses us with prosperity.
