Sermon by Daniel Glaze
“Finding Blessing in the Struggle”
I don’t think God wounds us in order to bless us. God doesn’t give us heartache and difficulty in order to teach us a lesson or give us a blessing. Rather, it is the struggle itself that is our blessing. When we struggle with God, our pride is wounded, our arrogance is defeated, and our greed is injured—and that is the blessing.
