Everyone has problems in this world.
No one escapes that fact.
Sure, some problems that people face pale in comparison to others' trials and challenges.
That is always going to be a reality.
But therein lies the crux of why we must count our many blessings no matter the circumstance or storm we find ourselves battling today!
Whatever you are dealing with in your life today, remember that it can always be worse! And there are people we know that are in the midst of their trials that would gladly exchange places with you and I in a heartbeat.
Pray for them and give thanks for your battle.
We were never promised a life of ease and perfect bliss.
The Promise was that we would NEVER have to endure our storms and adversities alone and we would NEVER be given more than we could handle!
Embrace the storm and know that you will get through it stronger and more peaceful than when you began!
Give Thanks and be Grateful - in times of joy but even more especially in times of strife and challenge!
Happy Tuesday - Stay Strong! :)
"EXPECT TO ENCOUNTER ADVERSITY in your life, remembering that you live in a deeply fallen world.
Stop trying to find a way that circumvents difficulties.
The main problem with an easy life is that it masks your need for Me.
When you became a Christian, I infused My very Life into you, empowering you to live on a supernatural plane by depending on Me.
Anticipate coming face to face with impossibilities: situations totally beyond your ability to handle.
This awareness of your inadequacy is not something you should try to evade.
It is precisely where I want you—the best place to encounter Me in My Glory and Power.
When you see armies of problems marching toward you, cry out to Me!
Allow Me to fight for you.
Watch Me working on your behalf, as you rest in the shadow of My Almighty Presence."
"After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting: "Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God."
—REVELATION 19: 1
"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty."
—PSALM 91: 1
