Discomfort and Daily Dependence Upon God
When we become believers we still have a strong natural tendency to consider our earthy pleasures and our feelings as the measure of what is really important in life. So much so, that we may often desire the old flesh-pots of Egypt, instead of what we really need. To break us from this the Lord will take us through times of discomfort as He teaches us daily dependence upon Him instead of the frames and feelings of this life. Through it all He is moving us further along in our sanctification where we begin all the more to understand that Christ is the greatest treasure we could ever have.
