Adversity, trials and tribulations are unavoidable periods all individuals experience. It is often during the wilderness seasons of distress when we seek to comprehend God’s plan and guidance in our lives.
Whilst in your wilderness or valley you might experience a range of emotions and thoughts that must immediately be checked so that your faith will properly align with God’s guiding power in your life.
As a Christian one should expect to enjoy the abundant life of Jesus Christ, but shouldn’t be naïve in believing that trials will not occur. That is one thing we should expect, especially when one is truly living as an ambassador for Christ. Weapons may be formed against you but thanks be to God that they WILL NOT Prosper!
During some of the most challenging moments in life remember that God guides you:
In a career setback
When an unexpected health report is disclosed
In a financial setback
When in-laws, relatives and family members ignore, scowl and exclude you
In the midst of an unexpected pregnancy
During the challenges of conception
Through the loss of a loved one
In revealing toxic relationships, business partnerships and associations
When individuals attempt to bully and intimidate, only because they are jealous and insecure
When a college professor challenges your Christianity beliefs and values
By disclosing the character of colleagues who’ve clandestinely worked together to disqualify you for a promotion
When colleagues discount your ideas
When family, friends and loved ones misunderstand you
When you feel lonely (remember you are not alone, God is with you)
After the rejection letter, notice and statement
During the challenges of God-honoring relationships
When you are forced to relocate and start over
When new opportunities and breakthroughs appear
Although adversity shows up, be encouraged that God knows all and He will never leave you nor forsake you. God is guiding you and ordering your steps in the midst of the pressure, pain, heat and discomfort you currently face. Be mindful today that God is working everything out for your good, because you love him and have been called according to his purpose.
Even in the most intense seasons of life, God guides us and is producing something in us that will fulfill his overall purpose in our lives.
God guides You!
