HELP I’M IN THE FIRE!!! – ENCOURAGEMENT FOR THOSE IN DIFFICULT TRIALS
Oh God, this trial is too hard.
I can’t take any more.
My marriage is under attack, my daughter is acting crazy, my co-worker is undermining me on the job, I am in debt, now the doctor says to come in because he needs to discuss my test results…….help Jesus!!!!!!! Help!!!!!
Is this you?
Is this the place that you are at right now?
Is this how you feel today?
Listen God loves you and He trusts you with this test just like He trusted Job with his test.
He has a lot of faith in what He has already put in you and provided for you to make you victorious.
Do you have faith in what He has already put in you and provided for you to make you victorious?
Do you believe that Christ in you is the hope of glory?
Do you believe that greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world?
Do you believe that the same resurrection power that raised Christ from the dead dwells in you?
Do you believe that you can do all things through Christ that strengthens you?
Do you believe that His angels are encamped all around you guarding and protecting you?
Do you believe that no weapon formed against you shall prosper?
Do you believe that this trial has come to make you strong and not to destroy you?
Do you believe that your times are in His hands?
Do you believe His grace is sufficient for you?
Do you believe that He is working all things together for good because you love Him and are the called according to His purposes?
I ask you again, do you have faith in what God has already placed in you and provided for you to make you victorious?
The work is to believe.
No matter how much the enemy bombards your mind with thoughts that are opposite to the above truths, purpose in your heart to fight the good fight of faith and hold fast to the truth of God’s Word.
No matter how your circumstances seem to contradict what God has said, determine to believe the report of the Lord, not your report, the report of others, and definitely not the report of the enemy.
Determine by the grace of God to hold fast to the truth of His Word with tenacity, to lock down on it like a Pit Bull locking its jaws on a victim.
My prayer for you today is not that the Lord would take you out of your fiery trial, but that you would begin to see it through His eyes, that your faith in Him and in His Word will not fail you, and that after being tried and tested, you will come out as pure gold, learning what He desires you to learn, changing how He desires you to change, having what He desires you to have and essentially, and ultimately becoming what He desires you.
