What To Do When

God doesn’t work on our schedules. We think we know when we need something, how we should receive it, or even what we should be doing with it. But what happens when we try to do things our way only to find ourselves in some deep troubled waters?

Your life may be spiraling out of control right now. Your health may be deteriorating. Your friends and family might have left and you feel all alone. Your co-workers and boss might be mistreating you. You may not be able to pay the bills. So what are you to do?

I know it sounds crazy but it all means that you are in a prime position for a mighty move of God in your life. When everything is going wild, crazy and simply don’t make sense in your life, then you have two choices (1) try to do things your way or (2) Stop, drop and wait upon the Lord.

No matter what the circumstance looks like, your best option is number 2. You’ve already tried doing things your way and it’s not working. You’ve tried praying about them or trying to run away from the very things God is using to change your life. He doesn’t want to just fix the problem, He wants to fix you inside out.

Think about it this way…if God just fixed every problem, would you need any faith to believe? If God just handed you a million dollars, would you really know how to use it correctly or would you end up being in worse shape when the million dollars slipped through your hands?

God’s ways are much higher than ours. He wants us whole and complete. Sometimes the only way He can truly fix us is by having us go through some deep, dark troubles. It brings us back to Him. It makes us stand on faith and seek Him in deeper ways. It takes all the crude out of us and places the beauty of the Lord within.

So if you are going through some tough times right now make sure to stop, drop and wait upon the Lord. Let Him do a complete and finished work in your life. It may be tough and painful but when you come out on the other side, you will have the tools you need to accomplish the amazing future He has in store for you.

God loves you too much and your purpose in life is too valuable to not have you prepared. Whatever you do, don’t despise the troubles. Seek Him to reveal the reason behind the difficult season. Ask Him what needs to change within you in order to walk into the VICTORY He has for you. Be primed, willing and able to walk into your mighty purpose. God knows exactly when to bring it, how to bring it, and He will be right on time.

Your Perspective Is Everything

When life throws you a curve ball, your perspective in the midst of the storm will be considerably different from when you obtain your victory afterwards.

Here’s a great quick clip of Pastor Steven Furtick’s take on the matter. It is a great reminder to help us see God’s perspective through the storm and realize there is something bigger coming on the other side of it.

God’s Blessings

Isn’t it amazing how quickly we can forget the incredible blessings that that God has given us? Once we accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, we tend to struggle very heavily in our minds. Being bombarded by negative thoughts and doubts; leading us into stress and worry. We think it sounds great in the Bible yet we doubt that it could happen in our lives today. However, God is not a respecter of persons. (Acts 10:34)

Every single day, we need to remind ourselves that if God said it…then, it will be done. There are no “ifs or buts” about it. No matter what we are facing, God gave us the answer. All we need to do is begin believing that whatever He did in the Bible, He can and will do for us in our lives today!

Let’s take a closer look at what God has to say…

God's Benefits

So, when you are feeling down and nothing seems to be going right…REMEMBER, His precious gifts!

What do you need today?

  • You need healing, it’s yours.
  • You need Divine protection, it’s yours.
  • You need favor, it’s yours.
  • You need a miracle, it’s yours.
  • You need forgiveness, it’s yours.

God loves us more than we could ever imagine and He wants us to live a REWARDING and SUCCESSFUL life.

Simply ASK – TRUST – and BELIEVE! God will provide anything you need! Now, it may not happen when you want it to or in the way you would like. However, God will provide in His perfect timing and in His perfect way! So take the limitations off God and let Him be your source in every area of your life. Stand firm, keep believing, and it will be done. We serve a very BIG GOD and He will not disappoint you!

Imagine the Scene

Jesus had caused the lame to walk, the deaf to hear, and the mute to speak. He had taught with authority unlike any teachers of the day and performed miracles that astounded all who witnessed them.

Yet the Savior of the world was hung on a cross, deserted by His followers, and then buried in a tomb.

But there’s more to the story. Three days later, a resurrection took place. Now, the head that was crowned with thorns is crowned with glory.

Let this perspective sink into your heart today…THERE’S MORE TO YOUR STORY.

No matter the past disappointment, present difficulty, or discouraging forecast: Your story is still being written… and the hand of God is holding the pen.

But the fact that God is writing the story doesn’t mean you don’t have a part to play. You need to stand on His word, hold onto your faith, let God be your source and remember, what you’ve been through may be difficult, but God will work it out for your good. Don’t give up now. There is more to your story.

“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” (Romans 8:18)

The scene you’re in today might be disappointing, but you don’t have to let it be the defining factor of your story. God has more in store for you and your next chapter is being written. Continue to stand in faith and watch God’s incredible story for you unfold into something amazing!

Excerpt by Steven Furtick

Mirror Reflection

Mirror ReflectionHave you ever wondered why you are made with the personality and looks that you have? I think we all do from time to time; and worse, in today’s society, we tend to want to look like someone else such as an actor, actress, model, singer, or your next door neighbor. It’s always easy to compare ourselves only to come up with a list of things we would like to change. Whether it’s losing weight, smaller noses, better features, smaller waist, muscular, etc, etc, etc. and even if we were able to change those things, we still wouldn’t be satisfied as we can easily find something else we don’t like about ourselves.

But, guess what? I have great news for you today!

Instead of thinking about the things you would like to change, see yourself as a MASTERPIECE! God made you exactly the way you are and when you accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior, something amazing happened…the Holy Spirit came to live within you. So, when God looks upon you, He doesn’t see what you see; He sees you as perfect in His image and in His sight.

Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female, He created them.”
Psalm 139:13-16: “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”

Boy, doesn’t that change your perspective a lot? See, when we start thinking in this manner, our lives quickly change. We aren’t striving to be different or unique because we already are!

Mirror Reflection 2

 

It’s okay if you feel you’d like to change something about yourself. Just pray about it and release it. If God feels the change is necessary then the Holy Spirit will guide you to make those changes when the time is right. Just don’t fret over it. Instead, enjoy your life and look in the mirror knowing that you are BEAUTIFUL, UNIQUE, and A MASTERPIECE!

God loves you this very moment and thinks you are WONDERFUL! Since God sees Jesus when He sees us; He is completely satisfied with us. We have His favor, His love, and His miraculous solutions chasing us down. There is absolutely nothing we need to do except see ourselves as God sees us. He made us, He knows us, and He loves us. There is nothing missing, nothing broken and nothing lacking! So, look in the mirror today and praise God for who you are.
