Life is filled with challenges. You are going to experience seasons in your relationships, finances, health and in your spiritual life. There will be times when everything looks terrible. Many of these challenges or seasons will find their way to your front door uninvited. The Bible calls it evil day. The day the enemy will come to destroy and to steal your happiness. But don’t be surprised when things get tough. Times of hardness are inevitable.
Irrespective of the season you are in your life, don’t allow the enemy, don’t allow the circumstances of your life hold you with fear. You have a responsibility to determine how you face them.
Psalms 34:19 (KJV) says, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all”.
No matter how difficult things may seem, always remember that God is with you and in you (Romans 8 :11). Don’t change your confession, you will never go through a dark day alone. Stand strong and stay in faith because it pleases God. Things may get a little rough, you don’t have to have it all figured out to move forward. Keep believing, refuse to faint, keep hoping and don’t forget to pray.
That pain and challenge are not God’s original plan for you – they were not there from the beginning and they won’t be there forever. They have an expiry date. They came to pass. God is for you. He is on your side. He sent you His Word and His Spirit to help you. You are not without help. No weapon formed or fashioned (written, spoken, discussed, intended,..) against you shall ever prosper. His help is near and it’s available. This is not a new desire from the Lord. It has been God’s original plan from the very beginning.
Matthew 11:28-30 (KJV) says, “28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light”.
May God bring you out of your past and bring you peace for today and in this season of your life. May you have showers of blessings. Provision, abundance on every side, will be yours – exceedingly, abundantly, above all that you ask or think – Ephesians 3:20.
