Do you have questions in your heart about your life and circumstances that require urgent answers? Are you going through tough times and you feel like God has forsaken you? Be encouraged in your heart today. God never abandons His own. If you are in Christ, He is committed to you as a Father. Sometimes He may seem so far, but He is closer than you can ever imagine. That situation you are faced with is just a test. The intent is not to humiliate or destroy you. It is only another opportunity for you to experience the faithfulness of God.
Listen to what God has to say to you from the book of Isaiah 43:2, ‘When you pass through deep waters, I will be with you; your troubles will not overwhelm you. When you pass through fire, you will not be burnt; the hard trials that come will not hurt you. That’s a sure Word from God. You will still be standing when the battle is over. As Long as your faith stands in the power of God and not in the wisdom of men, your expectations shall be fulfilled. Nothing is impossible to the man or woman who believes in God’s unfailing ability.
Be reminded that trials come to test your faith in God as stated in 1 Peter 1:6-7. It says, ‘ Be glad about this, even though it may now be necessary for you to be sad for a while because of the many kinds of trials you suffer. Their purpose is to prove that your faith is genuine. Even gold, which can be destroyed, is tested by fire; and so your faith, which is much more precious than gold, must also be tested, so that it may endure. Then you will receive praise and glory and honour on the Day when Jesus Christ is revealed. That’s why you need to build you faith strong. Faith comes by hearing God’s Word, but faith is strengthened by speaking God’s Word with great persuasion that the Word works. You received the measure of faith at new birth. Its your responsibilities to develop the measure you received to strong faith that can overcome every challenge.
The Enemy wants you to become depressed, confused and hopeless. Don’t let that happen to you. Instead, put Gods Word in your mouth and in your heart. Jesus said in Mark 9:23, ‘If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.’ Do you believe that your story can change? Do you believe that there’s help for you in God? Then keep praying in faith. Never give up on yourself and don’t lose faith in God. As you study His Word He will show you the way out of that problem in Jesus name. Amen
PRAYER: Thank you Father for this Word of Faith. I declare that all things are possible unto me because I have faith in Your Word. Henceforth, the desires of my heart shall be granted as I depend on you to navigate me out of this situation, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
