Challenges come to all of us. Sometimes they can feel overwhelming. When they do our tendency is often to become discouraged in our faith. where you might ask “Why would God let me go all the way down this road only to close the door now?” When life is tiring and confusing it’s easy to lose hope in God’s ability to work on our behalf. We can become weary and not bother picking up the Bible to hear what His Spirit has to say to us. We can cease to pray, feeling that God isn’t hearing us anyway.
God knows our nature is to fall away when times are hard and we are confused. He knows we will tend to neglect His Word. Hard circumstances in life can be times of equipping. The roots of a mighty tree must go deep so it will be grounded when the fierce winds blow. During times of deep challenge make a choice to trust God. Make a decision to allow God to equip you with spiritual understanding and wisdom for your next step.
Stay disciplined. Keep equipped by standing on the promises of His word. Keep the door of your heart open with an invitation to Him to lead you every step of the crooked way. He will build a track record in your life that will secure you in your faith. He is faithful. Be determined to continue to equip yourself with prayer and His word.
Though circumstances and people may disappoint you, God never will. His strength will hold your hand and your heart through those times when your world is shaken.
Be determined to be that one who will not be shaken…. I will not be moved… no matter what!
