These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world – John 16:33.
In difficult seasons, you might feel like giving up or stuck and don’t know how to move forward. This is when you have to trust God’s Word and His plan for your life.
In difficult seasons, we feel as though God doesn’t care about what we’re going through, or He’s not aware of what we’re going through or is angry with us. First of all, God does not hold on to anger as we do. He’s not easily angered, nor does He keep reminding us of what we did or didn’t do.
From the beginning of your life, God knew your destiny; He’s the author of your life story. There will not be anything that comes into your life that God is unaware of. When trouble comes in our life, it’s not because God is not aware or He can’t put an end to it. Life and Satan will bring trouble in our lives, and how we handle it determines our maturity naturally and spiritually.
If one is a whinier, naturally, one will also be spiritually. Whether one is a believer or a non-believer, maturity is needed to handle life issues. Faith is needed in God and ourselves to replace despair with faith. You can’t see faith, but you can feel it. Faith makes you feel like, although you’re going through, God is going to bring you out, God is going to make away.
Because God has spoken destiny in your life, destiny will come. It does not matter how many doors have been closed, how many no’s you have heard. It does not matter how often your business failed; destiny has been spoken, and it will be accomplished.
God wants you to succeed just as much or more as you do. God does not bring trouble, but He allows trouble and tribulations to come into our lives to mature us. Just as a parent wants their children to grow up and mature, God has the same desire for His children. He doesn’t want every time something takes us from our comfort zone; we whine or call everyone who will listen to tell them what we’re going through.
Faith says I will read God when I can’t feel Him. His Word is Him speaking to His children. He gives peace, direction, and wisdom in everything life and Satan will bring. Replace despair with faith in God and His Word. God has the last say, so, not your situation or circumstance.
