Every stage of your life is known by God. Where you are now is not a surprise for God. The disappearance of Kish’s donkeys was divine incidence. It caused panic to the family but to Samuel, it was Devine incident.1 Samuel 9:15-16 Now the LORD had told Samuel the previous day, “About this time tomorrow I will send you a man from the land of Benjamin. Anoint him to be the leader of my people, Israel. He will rescue them from the Philistines, for I have looked down on my people in mercy and have heard their cry.”
Undesirable things happens in our life and we are quick to attribute it to Satan. God promised never to leave us but we always think of the presence of the devil than the presence of God in our situation. During the time Job was facing difficult loss of his children, it looked like God has forsaken him but everything was approved by God.
When good things happens, we bless and praise God but when bad happens, we think God is not aware. We only expect the good things and are never prepared for disappointments. 2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching.
Thank God for everything in your life.
Isaiah 54:10 For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken,” says the LORD, who has mercy on you.
God cannot expose you to more than you can handle. In every situation, there is always grace. You cannot see it because you have magnified your problem. 1 Peter 5:10 In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation.
Have faith in God. You cannot fully commit to God whilst you have alternatives.
Ephesians 6:12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
Most of us get caught up by the act of hate and slanderous remarks made against us and we hate those inflicting the pain. Remember that your enemy is Satan, your haters are just available to be used. Joshua 1:9 This is my command-be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
Love your haters
Ever wondered why God did not take away Moses stammering problem, God trust His designs. What we call problem or challenge in our lives, God will be glorified through it. There are certain problems no matter how much you pray about them, they are not going anywhere. 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.
No problem is too hard for God to resolve. When situations that will be above your capability comes, God will come through. Luke 22:31-32 And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”
