The Next Level
A Message of Hope for Hard Times
Samuel R. Chand
General Council of The Assemblies of God
From minor inconveniences to the most traumatic events in our lives, God wants to use every painful event to draw us closer to Himself. If we understand God’s purposes for our times of struggle, we’ll trust Him instead of getting angry with Him, and we’ll see each difficulty as a steppingstone to the next level of our spiritual journey. Then, even when we don’t fully understand what God is doing, we’ll be convinced that He knows, He cares, and He’ll lead us.
