After a trial. When the dust has settled. When the sea is calm. When you are on the other side.
Praise God. Don’t look back.
God has obviously stretched your faith during the process. Don’t let the “elastic” go back where it was.
Forever let it change you.
As a pastor, I see so many people who praise God after the storm has passed, but then they quickly go back to their normal life. Soon, they forget the closeness they once felt to God. They forget the emotion of fear that caused them to cry out to God daily. They forget the way God delivered them from their time of need.
Has your faith been stretched?
