Adversity will come in your life if you’re walking with the Lord. You see God created you for His own glory & purpose.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10
For His glory to shine often we go through difficulties so He can shine through them. When tough relationships, leadership opportunities, difficult situations or anything that causes you to second guess your course comes along, know that God wants us to stand firm & remain faithful. How can God use us if we run away every time we are faced with a challenging decision to make?
Choose to Remain
Yet if we choose to remain & face the adversity we will come out stronger & more dependent upon God. Our faith & dependence upon our creator will shine.
Next time you are faced with adversity remember not to fear what’s ahead, trust God & face it with your God given strength He has given you.
As long as we are breathing God can & will still use us.
Yes God wants us to enjoy our life, but not at the expense of us being disobedient to Him. He made us each with a holy calling & purpose.
He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time. 2 Timothy 1:9
Humble and Obedient
We only need to stay humble & obedient, allow God to do what He has already promised. Yes obedience hurts because it goes against our flesh. We want what we want. We must be humble!
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:” Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 1 Peter 5:6,7 & 10
You see God will lift you up in due time! Adversity will come in your life. We must stand firm & remain faithful!
