“No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I go with Moses, so I will be with you. I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Joshua 1:5 (NIV)
Message and Prayer
To quote Langston Hughes “Life has not been no crystal stair”. It is often said that if you live long enough, you will experience some difficult things that will foster your relationship with God and give you your unique testimony. Let’s be real, no one likes adversities or compromised life situations. However, problems, challenges, and difficulties are unavoidable experiences of life. Good news, however! The adversity or difficulty you are experiencing is God’s way of testing your faith and trust in Him! So, although difficult, there is no need to be discouraged or dismayed because things are not going according to your plans, it is a part of the process that God is taking you through to bring you to develop the best version of you! Remember you are still on the potter’s wheel being molded daily into the person that God desires you to be.
Through faith and trust in God, we understand that He would not have allowed the difficulty, bad situation, heartbreak, health issue, or adversity to occur if you could not handle it, you are equipped through your faith and trust in Him! You will learn as I have that you have the God-given strength to overcome every adversity or challenge! Have faith and trust that God ordered your steps and has the master plan for your life. He “will never leave you nor forsake you”. And remember that God’s plans are to “prosper and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
Father, thank you for working out everything in my life for my good and for using adversities to prepare me to have the strength to successfully seize opportunities, increase and, abundance! Thank you for teaching me that what may seem like a setback is only a setup to propel me to the next level! Thank you, Father, that the adversity, setback, failed relationship or problem is not in my life to work against me, but to work for my growth, advancement, and my prosperity!
