Jesus promised us a life of abundant blessing when we follow Him. He never promised an easy, charmed life without unexpected disruptions. In fact, Jesus said we will encounter troubles--we will, most definitely, experience suffering and hard times. However, He does have plans for each of us--plans for our future and prosperity. Those plans are no secret and His ways are not hard. But, they are His plans and if we want to discover what they are, we have to discover them His way in His time by following after Him. He is God. We are not. Everything He does is for His glory. And everything that brings Him glory is for our ultimate good.
