God Cares (6)
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope- Jeremiah 29:11
One version calls it “a glorious future”. There is a future for you, things are about to change for your good. So, do not expect the worse, do not expect bad to happen to you. Even when you are ill, believe that you will get through the pain. Divine opportunities are coming your way so do not just go through your challenges, allow them to mature you. The pain you are going through will soon change for your gain.
The time for your enlargement is now. Do not go into hiding because of the fear of tomorrow; there is no safety anywhere except in God. Go ahead and do the will of God for your life. Declare God's promises when there is darkness, and God's light will shine on your path. With the eye of faith, see that things are about to change for your good so every struggle should make you stronger.
Develop the potentials in you, without pain you cannot reach the place of your destiny because we are not created to float through life. Difficulties are part of life so quit telling yourself you cannot handle a situation; yes, you can handle that situation because God is in you...this is what faith is all about. The forces of darkness cannot keep you from your destiny. Sometimes the enemies try to keep and hinder us from fulfilling the will of God for our lives; but they are liars. If God be for us, who can be against us? Whoever is against us will meet his waterloo. There are times in your life when you are faced with the consequences of your bad choices. It is then imperative to learn your lesson, never repeat the mistake of the past. Sometimes, we go through pains even when we are living right. It does not mean that we have failed God every time we are going through trouble. God used those seasons we are going through pains to change our story and to mould us to be able to help others; to comfort them. The comfort you get in difficulties can be used to help others who are also in pain. May you be a blessing to others in need in Jesus name, Amen.
Many ministries, churches, families, homes, and individuals are going through pains. Do not allow the pains you are going through to cause division or confusion among you. You do not have to understand everything God is doing in your life, but you must learn to trust God every step of the way. Even when it seems you cannot trace God, let your trust be in Him still. It is only when you overcome your troubles that you are qualified to help others. Stop accusing God, never think God is unjust; He cares about you. The pains you are going through presently will soon launch you into the fullness of your destiny and you will experience all round fruitfulness.
There is no weakness in you because the greater one lives in you. The present circumstance may portray you to be weak, but that is not who you are; you must produce result. A ship floats on water but once water gets into the ship, it starts sinking. Never allow the pressures of life to get into you. God is in you; He is in your spirit. As long as you do not allow the situations of the world to take the better part of you, the contrary circumstance will not consume you.
Prayer: In the name of Jesus, I subdue every challenge of life that has come against me. I am an overcomer and so I cannot be defeated. Whatever comes my way will be a steppingstone to a greater and higher level in Jesus Name.
