OVERCOMING ADVERSITY Pt 2
This is the day the Lord has made, so I pray you are able to rejoice and be glad in it.
No matter how difficult things may be, when we choose to rejoice in God’s love and faithfulness, we disperse the cloud of darkness, and open the possibility for a bright new day.
Today we continue to look at Principles in God’s word that help us have the victory over adversity.
2. TRUST GOD’S PLAN EVEN WHEN IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE.
God’s plan for your life, your family, and for the world, may seem unconventional, mysterious and even crazy from our limited human perspective.
But whenever you decide to trust God’s plan over your own feelings and ideas, you can count on God to deliver on His promise to bring ALL of your circumstances – even the toughest challenges – together to accomplish good purposes. God’s ways are best, and will bring about the best outcome.
God’s plan for your life will always be to your benefit, so choose to follow it faithfully by seeking God’s help to solve your problems rather than trying to solve them in your own limited understanding, or by depending on secular wisdom that is not only faulty, but can lead to deception and destruction.
Ask the Holy Spirit to help you cast aside your worry and anxiety, by recalling God’s love during moments when you need courage to move forward with His plan for your life. The more you focus on God’s love, the less stressed you’ll feel.
As God reveals His plan to you, simply follow it as well as you can day by day.
Be willing to say “yes” to whatever God asks you to do – even when it doesn’t make sense – and you’ll experience the miracle of breakthrough and overcome your challenges.
Whenever I’m worried or stressed about something, I reach out to intentionally bless someone else, and this always results in a sense of peace, realising God truly IS IN CONTROL, and I can trust Him no matter what.
Stop trying to understand, and simply hold your heavenly father’s loving and protective hand. Let Him lead you through the uncertainty of tomorrow.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a FUTURE.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
“And we know that ALL things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
