YOUR PAIN HAS A PURPOSE
In the midst of our pain, sometimes it is hard to have faith. We often wonder why things occur in our lives, and why we have to suffer through them. But, just like Lazarus died, and was in the grave three days (stinking) before Jesus responded to his sister’s outcry for help – you too may have to wait on the Lord for a period of time. During that time, you may be tempted to worry, doubt and complain – but remember, if you believe, you too can ‘See His Glory’revealed in your life. He will speak to the winds and the waves, and command them to be still! He will speak to that dead situation, and prophesy against it – and, at His Word, it shall live and come forth. Your pain has a purpose!
HOLD ON TO YOUR FAITH
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen according to the Holy Bible! If you can see your way, then you are not operating in faith. Faith is believing when you cannot see, understand, or phantom a favorable outcome. Believe God for an unexpected outcome. Do not allow faithless people to sway you away from trusting in God’s ability to move in your situation. The Holy Bible says that whatsoever we ask in faith, if we believe, we shall receive. Faith is having a Fearless Attitude Inspite of The Hinderances!
According to your faith, so be it unto you! Speak into your life today, speak into the lives of your children, family members, neighbors, and communities! Speak life and not death! Speak peace and not war! Speak love and not hate! Speak salvation, healing, deliverance – BY FAITH! Regardless of what is going on, our impossibilities are God’s possibilities!
LOOK TO THE HILLS
We can become so accustomed to depending on others, and even ourselves, until we forget where our help truly comes from.
We cannot overlook God’s hand in our daily lives. The Scriptures reveal to us that it is in Him that we live, move, and have our being. From the time we wake up in the morning, until the time we lay down to sleep at night; from the time we move our limbs, until the time we rest – God is working on our behalf. Even when we enter into trials and tribulations (as all humans do), we have to look to God for our help. We cannot carry these burdens alone. Pray to God for wisdom and guidance, don’t seek the counsel of the ungodly, acknowledge Him – and, He will direct your path. We will go crazy worrying about things that we have no control over. God cares for us, and He wants to carry those burdens for us. His Word says that He will keep us in perfect peace if we keep our minds stayed on Him.
When the enemy tries to distract you and keep your mind focused on your problems – rebuke him, and put him under your feet where he belongs. Jesus said that whatever we ask in prayer, believing, we shall receive it. Stop trying to fight in your own strength, put on the whole armor of God that you might be able to stand against the attacks of the enemy. Look to the hills – not to your parents, your pastor, your friend; not to the liquor (you don’t need a liquid spirit – you need the TRUE SPIRIT), not to the crack cocaine, heroin, meth. Look to Jesus. God will not put any more on us than we can bear.
Trust in the Lord and be of good courage – and, He shall strengthen your heart!
