God gives us a sense of identity by allowing us to experience rejection.
If you want to live a secure life, endure persecution.
 
God prepares us for ministry with pain.
If you want to trust God more, embrace the betrayal of men.
 
God prepares us for power and position with obscurity.
If you want to wield power, embrace the pain of being humbled.
 
God prepares us for wealth by equipping us with poverty.
If you want to be rich, welcome the discipline of simple living.

God wastes nothing in our lives. He uses the experiences we’d rather forget to prepare us to fulfill our life purpose.
“Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last.” (Mk 9:35)
