God wants to use your experiences to make you a better servant. As you grow in your walk with Him you will trust Him more in all things to work for your good. You will cooperate with Him as He gives you opportunities to develop your spiritual gifts and as He produces within you an impassioned heart. You will find in Him a standard outside of yourself for properly evaluating and reacting to your experiences.
"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." (Rom. 8:28)
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." (2 Cor. 1:3-4)
God will use both the good and the bad circumstances in our lives to develop passions within us to serve in certain ways.
Your spiritual gifts, experience, personality, passions and walk with God help you know just how you can best serve the Lord. -- Learn more about your ministry profile in the book, Finding Your Best Fit in Ministry.
