📖 Deuteronomy 31 vs 6:
'So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”
There are so many times in life I am sure you'll agree, where you just can't see the way ahead... You've been through so much, expect the worst and know you can't take much more...Well, I have some good news for you.
You see, often, when hard times come we try to run... We ask God to save us from our turmoil, to rescue us and to take it all away... but God is not a God who helps us to run... He is a God who helps us to Stand 💪🏻 (Exodus 14 vs 14).
Our God is a God of Victory:
(📖 1 John 5 vs 4)
(📖 Deuteronomy 20 vs 4)
(📖 1 Corinthians 10 vs 13)
(📖 John 16 vs 3)
(📖 Ephesians 6 vs 13)
Our God gives us the armour, the tools and the faith to give Him our struggles, and to see our trials and tribulations as opportunites rather than walls.
(📖Romans 5 vs 3-5)
(📖James 1 vs 2-4)
When we do see the trials of life this way, we see life differently... Our trials become Victories... It's all 'Character Gym 💪🏻😁'...
When we go to the gym, our muscles hurt, our mental endurance is challange and afterwards, if we've worked out right, we are exhausted... But our bodies develop, strengthen and grow, we become fitter, our brains have more spark and our bodies take on a new shape.
It's exactly the same for our characters... God may bring us to a place that looks like a place of pain, but it's actually a place of growth.
When we see our life the way God sees it, as a continuous opportunity to trust Him, to grow our relationship with Him and to have victory over those obstacles by using the authority He puts inside of us, through faith, we, by our responce, obliterate the power our circumstances hold over us. We become like Paul (📖 Philippians 4 vs 11-13).
When we see our circumstances and trials this way, when we truly rest and trust. And give God control (📖 Matthew 11 vs 28-30)... We walk in the peace He provides (📖 Philippians 4 vs 6-7), not trusting in what we know, but instead, in the one who knows us best. ...
Trust the process. You will be greatful even if things don't work as the way you want them to be. But God has amazing plans in store for you. Every season has a purpose. Cherish the moments of the season and keep hoping and trust the process. There is something that you can learn from every situation God puts you in. God gives opportunities and situations which can teach you and help you to be a more matured person. Be thankful in all your ways and God will take care of everything. Trust Him and you will shine like a diamond eventually as you thrive through everything that consumes you. Always believe that good things are about to come. Stay positive and hopeful. God bless you all ...
Give it to God and go to sleep! Let Him take care of those worries while you rest. ...
