Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. (James 1:12 NIV)
No matter what you are facing today, remember to persevere because even though there seems to be no way, our Father still sees a way out
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. (1 Corinthians 10:13 NIV)
What are we to do then in the midst of our problems?
1. Put or hope in Him, not in ourselves, not in anyone else, not in situations, and praise Him
Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. (Psalm 42:11 NIV)
Praise Him for His goodness, praise Him for His faithfulness, keep reminding yourselves about wonderful things He has done in your life
2. and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.” (Psalm 50:15 NIV)
3. Do what you need to do, and trust Him (acknowledge) to do what you can’t do
Trust in the lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. (Proverbs 3:5, 6 NLT)
Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. (Proverbs 3:5, 6 AMP)
4. Wait on the Lord
But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired. [Heb. 12:1-3.] (Isaiah 40:31 AMP)
Keep up the good attitude coz God’s favor is coming your way, He is a Father who longs to bless His children, but He want to make sure those blessings don’t destroy us, He wants us to be mature enough, to be a faithful servant, whom He can entrusted His blessings without them dragging us down to the path of death.
Return to the stronghold [of security and prosperity], you prisoners of hope; even today do I declare that I will restore double your former prosperity to you. [Ps. 40:2; Isa. 40:2.] (Zechariah 9:12 AMP)
