Struggles and Purpose
Can our struggles really be related to our purpose and our future when we can’t see any connection to either? YES, but how many Christians consider things like this? Aren’t we more apt to think something like, “My infirmity is a bloodline pattern, a weakness, a disease in our family.” So then we tolerate and allow an ongoing curse and thereby choose death and we act like “history repeating itself” is a biblical principle! History only repeats because the changes needed didn’t happen. That wrong thinking causes us to just accept things that we were actually born to conquer. We need to CHOOSE LIFE and bring CHANGE in our lifetime, and even expect change to ripple back to the previous generation.
