In times of trials and difficulties, the picture you have about God, will determine how you relate with Him. People can plan evil about your life, remember that there is God’s plan for you. Genesis 50:20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven. When you offer prayer in panic, you expect God to act based on your feelings and don’t exercise patience in waiting. You expect things to happen immediately. When people visits a ministry where there is deliverance, they often go back dejected if the results are not what they expected. This often lead to doubt on the calling of the servant of God. John 11:5-6 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So, when He heard that he was sick, He stayed two more days in the place where He was.
At the appointed time, there is healing and deliverance. Servants of God can declare breakthrough but few testifies afterwards not that the others did not believe but it was not the appointed time for them. Habakkuk 2:3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.
Fix your eyes on the promises, God will never leave you nor forsake you. He knows your pain and said, the grace is enough to see you through.
To see the level of a Christian, observe their character when facing challenges. 2 Kings 4:25-26 And so she departed, and went to the man of God at Mount Carmel. So it was, when the man of God saw her afar off, that he said to his servant Gehazi, “Look, the Shunammite woman! Please run now to meet her, and say to her, ‘Is it well with you? Is it well with your husband? Is it well with the child?'” And she answered, “It is well.”
When all has been said and done, you’ll see the glory of God. No success in comfort. It’s not that God does not see your situation, in due time, all will be well and you will have a testimony. Matthew 26:39 He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.”
The people that we admire, if they can share their life experience, the challenges they had to come across, can make us appreciate our simple life.
You move mountains
You cause walls to fall
With Your power
There is nothing that’s impossible
And we’re standing here
Only because You made a way
Nothing is new under earth. From the same challenge one commit suicide another comes out victorious and even write a book. God's promise is that, the challenges that comes our way will never be more than we can handle and that He will provide a way out. 1 Corinthians 10:13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
In your problem, see a new opportunity. A problem is a problem because of how we look at it. If you focus on your problem, you won't even see what God is doing around you and solutions He provides. Luke 17:1 hen He said to the disciples, "It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come!
