Trust God with your circumstance
“Helping People Fulfill God’s Plan For Their Lives Through Business”
Trust God with the Circumstance
“For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:6-7 NIV
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” – KJV
“So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God, who has saved us and called us to a holy life – not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. And of this gospel I was appointed a herald and an apostle and a teacher. That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet I am not ashamed, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day.” 2 Timothy 1:8-12 NIV
What trial or circumstances are you facing that seem beyond your ability to handle? Paul was writing from prison. Paul could have been filled with fear and worry, yet he was confident in the power of God that has saved him. Whatever worry or fear you may be experiencing, know that Jesus Christ has overcome death. Through your relationship with God, HE has given you the Spirit of power, love and a sound mind. You can guard and trust your heart to the one who has forgiven and redeemed you. Jesus Christ overcame death. You can trust God to overcome the problem or circumstance that is holding you back from trusting HIM. Turn your confidence and trust to the resurrected Christ.
Your confidence in the resurrected Christ brings comfort, peace, hope and purpose during the trial or circumstance. You can now rejoice in the Lord always. Again, I say rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. Allow the enemy to fall in front of you. Watch the fear go away as you trust God with your circumstance. Jesus Christ has already won the battle. Saul was David’s enemy and Saul fell on his own sword and killed himself. Allow God to do the work in your life. The enemy of fear, doubt, worry, anxiety and death is defeated in Christ Jesus. Focus on your Love relationship with the God. Seek First the Kingdom of God and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS with all your heart.
Paul gave up everything for Christ. Are you willing to give up everything for Christ? Jesus said: unless you give up everything and follow me, you cannot be my disciple.
