Chaos is a state of utter confusion. People are upset and things are not making sense. In the midst of this, something magnificent happening, one is becoming stronger. The strength to stand is being formed. If you do not whether the storm, how are going to find out what you are capable of doing and handling?
Let’s look at the oyster. When a grain of sand or food particle gets stuck in the mollusk of oyster, the oyster protects its self by coating the particle with nacre. As a result of this defense mechanism, a pearl is formed.
If the particle was never stuck, the pearl would not be formed. If chaos or trouble, do not happen, one would not know if they can handle the situation and one would not be stronger in that area.
The Bible tells us in the midst of trouble, we will find comfort and strength in God.
Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
When the next bout of trouble comes, think, what will I gain from this experience?
