There are moments when this journey gets weary. Trouble presents itself and forces us to stop and consult the God of strategy. Trouble will exalt itself until in our minds it is bigger than God on the throne.Trouble will beat you up until you face it. Trouble can be viewed several ways. From the improper perspective trouble is a means to close up shop and return once the smoke has cleared. The goal is to pull from God’s perspective. Remember that even your vision is your choice.
“I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life..”(Deuteronomy 19:20)
Thank God that His thoughts are better and his ways are higher. Because of him, even trouble can serve a purpose.
Trouble will push you to your destiny. Trouble be can disguised as a problem, but it’s the shove that when viewed correctly, can push you into an uncomfortable place and expand your capacity to receive what God wants for you. Trouble is the authentication process. It shows you what is on the inside that needs to come out. It also can build your confidence about the greater One on the inside of you.
The place of trouble will show you who God is. Through some of my most difficult seasons I have come to know God so much better. I want to be clear that God is good and does not create trouble but he can make trouble benefit you. In other words, the enemy meant for trouble to harm you, but God intended it all for your good (Genesis 50:20).
I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of. John 10:10 MSG
This trouble you are in isn’t punishment; its training, the normal experience of children. Hebrews 12:6 MSG
God can’t break his word. And because his word cannot change, the promise is likewise unchangeable. Hebrews 6:18 MSG
