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.

Solid Rock

We sure can give the devil alot of air time. When anything happens that we don’t like, we quickly say the devil did it. The devil gave me a flat tire, the devil gave me the flu, the devil made that person treat me badly or walk away.

What if it was God who made it happen? Now I know what you must be thinking…
“God would never do such a thing.”
“God would never allow something bad to happen.”
“God would never allow someone to treat us wrong or walk away.”

But guess what, His word says He does.
Haggai 1:9 “You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?” declares the Lord Almighty. “Because of my house, which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with your own house.”

God allows certain things to happen in our lives so we won’t blow it. It’s not to punish you or get back at you…it’s to protect you. If He allows us to depend on ourselves or others, we can easily get too attached to it and forget that He is our source.

He created us. He breathed life into us. He gave us our gifts. He gave us our professions. He gave us family. He gave us friends. He gave us the funds. He owns it all but He has freely given to us and we need to make sure we keep our eyes fixed on Him and not our things.

When God sees us building our house on sinking sand and not His strong foundation, He might step in to rattle our lives a bit to help us refocus and return to Him. He would rather see us go through a season of frustration than to build our lives on the wrong foundation. That’s how awesome and loving our Father is!

He wants each of us to be significant and sometimes the only way to do that is shake us up a bit to get us back onto the right path. Don’t let the would of, could of, should of, fixing too thoughts wane you from God. We all have plans in motion and the plan might be God’s plan for our lives. But if we take our focus off Him and start believing in ourselves, the plan, our works, our friends/family, our money or anything else more than God Himself, then you can definitely expect a shake up to come.

Don’t forget who is the plan master, the provider, the distributor and the opportunity maker. Build your house on His strong foundation; making Him your first priority every single day and in everything you do, then you don’t have to worry, stress or fear about what the day brings.

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

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!

You Are More Than A Conqueror

Jesus shed His blood in seven different places to break every curse and redeem us to every blessing His blood activates. It is a time to remember exactly what Jesus did for each and every one of us. He paid the ultimate sacrifice. He broke every curse. He broke every addiction. He gave us dominion and authority.

  1. In the Garden of Gesthemane: He bought back our willpower and to redeem our will. (Matthew 26:39)
  2. At the Whipping Post: By His stripes we are healed. Every curse of sickness and disease was broken. (1Peter 2:24)
  3. Crown of Thorns: To break the curse of poverty. (Genesis 3:17-18)
  4. In His hands: To restore dominion to the works of our hands. (Deut. 28:12-13)
  5. In His feet: To give us authority everywhere we walk. (Joshua 1:3)
  6. In His side: His was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities and heals our broken hearts. (Luke 4:18)
  7. He stomped on the devil’s forehead and bruised His heel to break every family and generational curse. (Isaiah 53:5)

Take back your God-given blessings that Jesus gave us. When He said “IT IS FINISHED”, he didn’t mean it would be a hit or miss, pie-in-the-sky kind of faith. He returned us to the Father who is there for us every single moment of every day. He gave us everything we needed to make it through any trial, any difficulty, and any situation that comes against us that is contrary to the Word of God!

Take your stand against the enemy. You are more than conqueror through the Blood of Jesus. You are the head and not the tail, above and not below, you are the lender not the borrower. Take back what the devil has stolen and remind him that Jesus’ blood gives you complete victory.

Don’t let another day go by without thanking Jesus for His sacrifice and for the heavenly blessings He has bestowed towards you. Return unto Him and he’ll return unto you. Give and it shall be given to you. Know the seven places Jesus shed His blood and understand why God’s Word is Final! It is because of Jesus that you will have favor with Him and with man. Praise His Name above all others and watch the amazing blessings burst forth into your life.

Today is a new day. Activate the 7 places Jesus shed His blood and He will bring favor upon you. Let God stand in front of you and your family to make every curse pass over your home, business, health, family, and finances. Almighty God will open the windows of Heaven over you and your family which will release the blessings that Jesus’ blood provides. You are more than a conqueror through the Blood of Jesus Christ and today, your life will never be the same. Rejoice for the Lord is good – Your Victory Is At Hand!
