Trials & Idols

I recently heard someone say that God fashions our trials according to our greatest idols. Sometimes what I want the most, I want more than God. God doesn’t always say no, but wait. And in that waiting we find that our desires are much stronger than our love for God. It’s a great opportunity to find our satisfaction in Him. Not in our marital status. How accomplished we are. How amazing and “successful” our job is. We dream and desire, but ultimately our rest isn’t in life, but in Him and glorifying Him.
