One thing that is common to all human being is that we live in a world that is full of pain and challenges which means that at some point in our lives everyone of us will go through or experience these challenges one way or the other.
Some have gone through and come out of it, some are currently in it. One thing we should know is that it is not out of place to experience challenges especially as a child of God and the higher we grow the higher the challenges.
According to John 16:33, There will always be challenges in this world but thank God He has won the victory
I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.
Challenges comes in different forms and ways, it could be in form of attack on your Health, Finance, Family, Academics, work, relationship.
As child of God if you are not deeply rooted in in the word when you go through these trials you can easily be overwhelmed and start second guessing your faith thereby allowing all sorts of ungodly thoughts access into your mind and if not resisted immediately can cause one to backslide and miss the way.
The devil which is our common enemy is always in contention with our minds, so give no opportunity to him.
Essentially, challenges does two things; it can either make of break which all depends on how you react to it especially in managing it.
Know that no matter what you are going through, you are not the first and you are also not alone. Jesus went through it, Job went it it and what about the apostles? They are did and came out victorious.
God’s promise to us in Isaiah 43:2
When we passes through the waters, He will be with us; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow us: when we walk through the fire, we shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon us.
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. Romans 5:3
This is so reassuring and to know that God is and will always be with us irrespective of the circumstances we might or currently going through in life.
With this assured promises from God to us we should have the right attitude and mindset especially whenever we face any challenge in life. Instead of crying and fretting over that unpleasant situation, speak to that situation and remind the problem who and how big your God is.
Encourage yourself in the Lord, speak faith, speak hope, speak victory, speak life.
- Tell that sickness you are healed by His strips and your body is the temple of God.
- Tell that failure that stirs you in the face that you are more than a conqueror.
- Remind that sorrow that the joy of the Lord is your strength.
- Tell that lack that your God owns the cattle upon a thousand hills and He’s your sufficiency.
- Tell that fear God has given you the spirit of power, love and sound mind.
- Tell that delay that you will wait till your change comes, it may seem slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.
Many thanks for stopping by, until next time..
May God give you more and more mercy, peace, and love.
