Storms pass away! They don’t stay! Sometimes we think of a negative circumstance as a demotion, but change your perspective to see it as a promotion instead. What you think is there to defeat you, SURELY God will turn things around to make you better.
Everything in your life is divinely orchestrated as a part of the plan to make and mold you into greatness. God is not surprised if the enemy ambushes you with challenges. Jesus said …”IN ME you may have PEACE. In the world you will have tribulation; but BE OF GOOD CHEER, I have overcome the world.”(John 16:33) As Jesus said … IN ME you may have PEACE! Thus, we seek to be IN HIM to have PEACE! We press in to go behind the veil and find time to be in His presence where the fullness of JOY is found.
Do not allow a brief period in your life to define who you are. You are bigger than who you think you are because God has deposited in you a seed of greatness. You always have a choice which way to focus on. Focus on the Word of God and let it define who you are! When God said .. “YOU ARE BLESSED!” You may not feel like you are but let the Word of God change you! He said … “Do not harden your hearts …” That means .. BELIEVE what He said about you and your life will go changing a different direction … from glory to glory!
Rise above the storm and soar high in God’s ways and thoughts that are higher than your own. As you agree with Him, you soar with Him. As you get transformed by the renewing of your mind, your character is formed that sustains the greater things that God has for you. You get to be relentless, tenacious, and have a stubborn kind of faith that never gives up until you see our latter end that is greater that your beginning.
In the meantime, PRAISE HIM on credit! When you haven’t seen anything yet, PRAISE HIM! PRAISE HIM in advance! PRAISE HIM in the middle of struggle. It’s easy to praise God when all is well. BUT while going through, CHOOSE TO PRAISE HIM BY FAITH! It is in your praises where He sits and inhabits! When your praise goes up, He Himself comes down and become the very answer to your every need.
“For the time being no discipline brings joy, but seems grievous and painful; but afterwards it yields a peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it [a harvest of fruit which consists in righteousness-in conformity to God’s will in purpose, thought and action, RESULTING IN RIGHT LIVING and RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD].” Hebrews 12:11 AMP
