If you are like me today, there are probably many issues calling for your attention and there are those that won’t just let you have peace of mind. It is also possible that your day is full of appointments and obligations, with very little time to breathe or you simply found yourself doing what you don’t want to be doing. Whatever it is that you are battling with today, realize that tough times are good ground for God’s provision.
Sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly in the path of the best things that will ever happen to us.
Don’t allow anything to take your focus away from knowing who you are in the midst of that situation. Instead of focusing on all the bad, be thankful for all the good. Sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly in the path of the best things that will ever happen to us.
Each day you have is a blessing from God. Be strong now because things will get better. It might be stormy now, but it can’t rain forever. The situation you are in is not a surprise to God. That heartbreak is not a surprise to God. That separation is not a surprise to God. That divorce is not a surprise to God. For every dirt that has been hauled at you, none is a surprise to God. Jesus never said it would be easy, but He said it would be worth it! (Matt 7:13-14). Today, God is working out every detail for your good. Understand that God enjoys putting His glory on display especially against all the odds!
Trust Him today with your needs. Wherever you are right now is God’s provision and not His punishment. A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed like a hopeless failure may turn to a glorious success. This is not the time to cry over that situation. This is the time to keep the faith alive, this is the time to trust the signs… Faith is the ability to feel so sure of God that no matter how dark the day, there is no doubt that it will turn out right.
“Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.” — Lamentations 3:23
God has a great plan for your life. With God on your side nothing is impossible. He is directing your steps. In His perfect timing, everything will turn out right. David knew about this great secret when he said in Psalms 119:71 (MSG), “My troubles turned out all for the best — they forced me to learn from your textbook”.
Keep your faith irrespective of your circumstances and it will keep you.
This hurt you are feeling now won’t disappear overnight but some way, somehow, if your heart is right, everything will turn out right. Joseph saw the end of slavery and imprisonment because his heart was right. Learn to do the right thing at the right time, learn to say the right thing at the measure of faith that has been dealt to you. Keep being your best, living confident, expecting good things, and God will get you to where you’re supposed to be. The challenges you’re seeing now are not there to destroy you. They’re there to promote, increase and strengthen you.
No matter how much weight this world puts on your shoulders, God will be there to make sure it doesn’t crush you. Your Father is trustworthy. He has called you to a life that man cannot destroy and to treasures that are eternal. He will never leave you nor forsake you. Keep your faith irrespective of your circumstances and it will keep you. There is great potential in your life. May He bless and guide you as you develop it in His service.
I declare that God is working out every detail to your advantage, He will perfect everything concerning you, Everything will turn out right today — Psalms 119:71. God is putting His Glory on display for your sake and for all to see that He is your God — Exodus 14:18.
