Complaining or Faith??? Tough Choice!
So many times Christians spend their time and their words complaining about their situations. As children of the Most High God we have promises that will cover any and every situation. He exposes the plans of the wicked to offer us protection.
Proverbs 11:8. To protect us, He exposes the plan of the wicked by His Light.
We are troubled because we cannot see into the darkness that lurks out in front of us, fearing things unknown and future events, thus losing the hope and confidence from God's Word. We have faith. It is not an accessory to be put on a shelf for decoration but an active weapon against the lies of the enemy.
Look at Isaiah 41:10 "Fear not, I am with you: Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you. I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. "
God's miraculous love for us, will expose all the plans the wicked one has set out for us. He exposes them by setting the lamp at our feet, so that we will not stumble, remaining on solid ground, and he shines the light on our path so that we can maneuver around the obstacles ahead of us. So when someone gets sick, hurt, or turns rebellious, this is God's way of showing us ahead of time, so that we can go into our battle planning mode (seeking His guidance in prayer).
Jeremiah 29:11-12 says " He already has a plan for each of us, and it's for our good and not for evil, and to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you" If God is so good to expose the evil plans of the wicked, is He good enough to extinguish the fiery arrows? Yes He is!!! AND He will!
The enemies tactics are not new, and are no match for the Lord. He tries to cause doubt in your thinking, and it only takes just a little doubt to render your prayers powerless. Don't let the enemy get a head start on you, whenever faced with trials and tribulations...don't wallow in self pity, hopelessness or shame...seek His throne, and get ready for battle! Counter the enemies every action with the Word of God.
Don't let the beginning crisis fog your vision...Zechariah 4:10.when God moves in our lives, He moves Miraculously so that we know without a doubt that it is Him!! Think about it, God reveals to us the beginning and the end...why? To build our hope, confident hope and faith in His promises! Don't be dismayed because of trials and troubles, God has given you a head start in the battle. Go forward in confidence, power and His might!
