I meet many people who are going through many challenges.Life across the world is getting harder and harder.
Migrants in the UK who have not been able to regularise their status for whatever reason are being backed into a really hard place where they may end up with very limited choices. The countries they come from are facing wars , political upheavals and economic crises. I see anxious faces, people filled with fear , with dread and with despair.
The times are getting tougher and there are circumstances which seem to be working to make people lose their spiritual,physical and material blessings. My encouragement is don’t give up, resist steadfastly in prayer. Prayer really does change situations.
The bible in Phillipians 4 vs 13 says
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me
In order to win in life and to overcome some of the obstacles and challenges that we face it is imperative to develop the right mental attitude. Men and women are products of their thoughts .
Proverbs 23 vs 7
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.
The battle starts in the mind and if you are to believe that you are defeated then you are , if you believe that you are more than a conqueror and a winner then you will be.
Don’t be moved by sight, the things you see , the circumstances around you.
Don’t be moved by what you read in the press or what you see on the news.
Don’t be moved by what is happening or has happened to someone you know.
Don’t be moved by your current geographical location.
Don’t be moved by your current financial circumstances.
You should only be moved by the word of God. Your future is not determined by your present situation or circumstances. It is determined by God’s pre ordained will concerning you.God has good plans to give you a future and a hope and not plans to harm you.
God is able to bring growth and life out of the most unlikely situations and places.
For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant and as a root out of dry ground
Isiah 53 v 2
Plants don’t normally grow an blossom in dry ground.In the above quote a tender plant grew out of dry ground. something beautiful is going to come out of the adversity and the trials.
Always seek out the seed of triumph in every adversity.Og Mandino
Every adversity that we face in life is an opportunity for growth . Out of the dry ground something new will and can be birthed in and through you.
Don’t limit God with your own way of thinking. Think big and plan big God is able to do all things.
