God will bless us if we don’t give up when our faith is tested.
God is a rewarder of those who have kept the faith and stood their grounds in the face of adversity.
There’s only one way to test faith — by facing the tests and challenges when they come from every side.
“We are often troubled, but not crushed; sometimes in doubt, but never in despair; there are many enemies, but we are never without a friend; and though badly hurt at times, we are not destroyed.”
2 Corinthians 4:8-9 GNT
There are seasons in our lives when it appears like we don’t get a break from difficult storms. It’s like the floodgate of adversities pushes us mercilessly into a deep pit, and we become vulnerable and weak.
Don’t blame God when hard times come. The Bible says, we will have our faith tested. If you don’t know what to do — Tell God and He will direct you. God NEVER backs down when the fight is strong.
Our relationship with God is not based on our feelings and emotions especially when bad stuff happens.
It’s a faith thing that the ungodly wouldn’t understand. Faith has absolutely nothing to do with feelings. It’s based only on a loyal and committed relationship with God.
In good times – God and you should be good.
In difficult times – God and you should still be good.
In any relationship there must be challenges — do you run away every time there’s a challenge in your relationship? No. Otherwise you will have countless exes…
You must hold on and trust that the love and commitment shared between both parties will survive this storm and the next storm. Marriages that last forever are because both persons were committed to fix and repair the broken pieces.
Decide once and for all that your relationship with God is valuable and important to you. God cannot be traded for what your feelings tell you. We walk by Faith and NOT by sight, feelings or emotions.
People who worry that their prayers are NOT heard by God — are usually the ones who quit and are NOT committed to having a lasting relationship with God. They’re unstable in all their ways.
We are only human. We don’t have to have it all together every day. Remember that your greatest PAIN has potential to become your greatest strengths. Hold on. Stand still. Wait.
Pray. Wait. Trust. — put on repeat when in doubt.
