We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Romans 5:3-5
What a mouth full of hope in these verses. I can’t say I’ve always rejoiced when I’ve run into problems & trials. Some of them were so big, I kept running into them and I looked like I’d been in a train wreck. How many can relate to that?
Over the years and through some serious recovery time, I’ve learned that instead of tripping over those obstacles, placing them together created building blocks that enabled me to climb to such great heights where the views were breathtaking. Seeing them from Gods vantage point put the circumstance in true perspective.
He’s always bigger, always greater than any problem we can or cannot see. Its not what you see that makes the difference, it’s how you see it. What you see shouldn’t overwhelm you when you know who is in control, we are! Ask God how to pray, what to speak and do it. He gave us authority over all the power of the enemy.
Have I lost some of you right there? Do you remember that what Adam lost, Jesus took back and gave us our authority back? It is by His shed blood that we have power over the plans and schemes of the enemy. The Spirit of God lives on the inside of us, therefore everything we need to overcome is already available to us.
No sickness or disease is greater than the power in you. No virus is greater than the power in you. No lack is greater than the power in you. Nothing, absolutely nothing has power greater than the power in you. It’s only possible when you believe, because Jesus said, nothing, absolutely nothing is impossible to those who believe.
Come on up and share the view! Spending time in His presence brings the needed perspective to not just get you through, but to give others hope too.
