Has Life Been a Challenge Lately?

Good Morning Precious and Dearly Loved Child!

What do you do when the Bible says you have already been healed, yet cannot manifest your healing?  What do you do when the Bible says that God has already given you His kingdom and that you are in all the glorious riches of Christ, yet you walk without a dime in your pocket?  What do you do when the Bible says that the Love of God is constantly being poured into your heart, yet you struggle to love others who hurt and reject you?  What do you do when the Bible says you are “More than a conqueror”, that “You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you”, that “you have been fullness In Christ who is head over every power and authority”, that “every promise in Christ is ‘Yes’ and ‘Amen” and yet  you are experiencing is trouble and defeat and failure! 

 You are at a crossroads.  Are you going to turn to the flesh, in unbelief, and reject the Truth of God’s Word; or are you going to stand on God’s Word no matter how difficult, challenging and impossible the circumstances you are facing seem to be?  “Against ALL hope, Abraham in Hope believed and so became the father of many nations.” Romans 4:18.            “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” Romans 15:4.             Sometimes, you just have to endure the very difficult times knowing that what you are going through is temporary and the circumstances will change!        “And we know that in ALL things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28.       

    You may be under the severe attack of the enemy at the moment, but you have to believe that God is working on your behalf and things will change for the good if you will just stay in belief and keep trusting in the Word of God!     Sometimes, as a result of just living on the planet earth, circumstances can go severely negative and extremely troublesome!  There is still an enemy of darkness and evil running around trying to create havoc in each and every person’s life, trrying to steal, kill and destroy them!  Have you noticed that sometimes, “when it rains, it pours”?    It seems like sometimes the trouble is just overwhelmingly, overwhelming!!!  

  “We do not want you to be uniformed, brothers, about the hardships we suffered in the province of Asia.  We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life.  Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death.” 2 Corinthians 1:8-9.       Ever felt the negative weight of circumstances just overwhelm you, and it feels like a steam roller just ran over you?  Paul felt this way as he was ministering to the churches!     Jesus said that “In this world, you will have trouble.” John 16:33.      

  So what are you going to do when the troubles of life hit you like a ton of bricks?  Are you going to enter into unbelief and falsely belief that the victory must not be God’s Will?  Or, are you going to belief that God’s Will for your life “Your Will be done on earth as it is in heaven”?  Are you going to believe that God is not withholding blessing from you and that you are just learning to walk in the Spirit in a realm that is filled with an enemy?  Are you going to press into Jesus and set your heart and mind on Him and flood your heart and mind on the “Good News of Great Joy” that you have a savior who will save you out of your devastating circumstances? 

 Are you going to “set your heart on things above, the heavenly realities, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.  Set your mind on things above, the heavenly realities, not on things earthly things”? Colossians 3:1-2.   If you were to choose to flood your heart and mind with the current truths of how you are In Christ in the Heavenly realms, you would be choosing very wisely!!!  You will be honoring what Jesus accomplished for you at the Cross!  

 If you don’t allow yourself to go into the zest-pool of fear, doubt, unbelief and condemnation, and stay in faith, no matter how severe the attack on you is, you would be honoring Jesus and extremely pleasing the Father!!!    “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time you WILL reap a harvest, if you DO NOT GIVE UP.”!!!! Galatians 6:19
