In your challenged, there is always a way out.

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.

Currently so many bad things are happening around the world. We have normalized things that were forbidden in the past in the name of rights. When calamities comes we say, where is God in all this? Isn’t it time we repent and go back to God. 1 Corinthians 6:12 You say, “I am allowed to do anything”-but not everything is good for you. And even though “I am allowed to do anything,” I must not become a slave to anything.

Persecution

Psalm 102:1-2 LORD, hear my prayer! Listen to my plea! Don’t turn away from me in my time of distress. Bend down to listen, and answer me quickly when I call to you.There are times when you feel so overwhelmed by challenges that you wonder what is God’s opinion about your situation. Your prayers seems to to just hit the ceiling and return void. Remember that God is God forever, whatever situation that we pass through, it does not change who He is and His promises. Psalm 102:12 But you, O LORD, will sit on your throne forever. Your fame will endure to every generation.

God’s promises remains, He will never leave nor forsake you. He will come in due time when they think it’s over.

Micah 4:11-12 Now many nations have gathered against you. “Let her be desecrated,” they say. “Let us see the destruction of Jerusalem. ” But they do not know the LORD’s thoughts or understand his plan. These nations don’t know that he is gathering them together to be beaten and trampled like sheaves of grain on a threshing floor.
