How many times have we felt like this? In trouble and all alone, with no one to count on. Feeling like the odds are stacked up against us and we have surely been dealt a losing hand. We don't understand how we got here. And we're not at all certain of what we should do now that we are here. Frightened by the bleak outlook; worried that we'll never escape.
At times, we want to sit down, give up and have a good ole fashioned "pity party" but as believers, we know that is not an option for us. If we are believers then we know what the word of God tells us. And if we know the word of God, as believers, we must do just that, believe. For did He not tell us:
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
And, being believers, we must believe that even in our darkest hour, our Father has a purpose. We are not going through this thing just because. God has a reason and the reason is for our good. And, if we are going through and it is for our good then no matter how many enemies come against us we must be aware we are not alone. For did He not say:
1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
And if we know that God is greater and He is with us and He is working the situation out, then we must believe the battle is not lost, nor can it be. The mighty One is fighting fiercely on our behalf. And if we know and believe that He is fighting for us, we must likewise believe we will come through this and be victorious. For did He not tell us:
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Therefore, no matter what it looks like; No matter how bad it may appear; No matter whether the exit can be seen or not; No matter how numerous our adversaries appear; Trust, Believe and have Faith, that the all knowing, all seeing and all perceiving God has us on His mind. He has orchestrated this!! He has set you up in this situation for His glory. And He will surely protect you while guiding your foot steps. He will bring you through to the expected end!! Stay the course!! Fight the good fight of Faith and BELIEVE!! After all, we go through this life (and all that comes with it) not for ourselves but for the glory of Christ Jesus! HALLELUJAH!!!
GLORY TO THE GOD OF OUR PURPOSE!!!!
