The struggle is so real, sometimes every single turn is some new issue, some new dilemma that needs to be addressed. Some situation that causes some great deal of anxiety, stress. It just doesn't stop. We are jumping hurdles the minute you jump over one; shortly after there's another. Lord when will will we catch a break?
Sickness, death, finances, employment, children, spouses, parents, school, car, house, neighbor, community, taxes, lust, sex, fear, anger, deceit, hypocrisy, dishonesty, infidelity..............It goes on and on.
Why must we go through such things?
God is teaching us wisdom. In the grand scheme God is teaching us to how to activate our faith and stop leaning on our own understanding. He is showing us, that all things good will come to those who wait upon him.
If we choose to; these same very circumstances will be the growth of our inner spirit man. Equip and formidable to with stand the plots of the devil. Providing agility and strategy to counter the clever attacks that satan has set in our way.
If we didn't have these issues we wouldn't appreciate the Father , Son and Holy Spirit. If we had all quick solutions we would never learn to lean on him.
These trials are here to set us apart for his kingdom not one dilemma is the same even if the story is similar. The people are different and the sentiment will always vary. It's because your trial has been designed to fit a greater purpose for you.
It's because the lesson in the trial will result in a wholesome blessing for you. If you are aware then; you will recognize the will of God and glorify God in awe of gratitude.
James 1 v 2-6 Profiting from Trials2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces [a]patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be [b]perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
Be encouraged, today I know the hardships make life seem so hard to bear. I know even at times it seems even too hard to pray. Hold onto God, He is with you he will never leave you or forsake you.
Jesus, loves you and although it is hard to see it while you are going thru these trials God is about to open the portals of heaven and RELEASE TO you a profound blessing.
He is getting you ready to receive an outpouring of his love for you. Being christian doesn't exempt you from trials. Look what they did to Jesus. Being Christian however, is knowing that greater is he that is within you than he of this world.
Our Savior, Our Blessed Redeemer is fighting even when you are sleeping for he watches over his sheep. He is The Good Shepard. Trust in Him, His Power, His Grace and his Mercy.
Walk into the throne room of grace and expect your redeemer to shower you with peace and joy in abundance. Never doubt the Lord.
Instead find yourself a quiet space and fight that dilemma with prayers and worship. It too will work out for you as God sees it fit. Put on a shield of Faith. Armor up! Enter in and fight. Your Commander parted the red sea and defeated death. Go to Jesus!
Romans 8 31- 39 Nkjv God’s Everlasting Love
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:
“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”
37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
