The Lord is concerned about you as an individual. He wants to use you. Think about how you can make a difference in your area of influence. The reason God is allowing you to go through hardships is because He is pruning you and molding you. Think about Joseph. God took him into slavery in order to prepare the nation of Egypt for famine. Likewise God took Moses into the wilderness to humble him and prepare him to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt. Joseph was faithful at every stage of hardship and temptation and God finally promoted him an made him prime minister of Egypt.
You are sitting on a gold mine; tremendous potential. There is a lot of resources you are sitting on; untapped potential. There is no limit to which God can use a Christian who is totally yielded to Him.
