Life is a challenge! Living life is a challenge! As we live our lives, each one of us will ultimately have our own cross to bear, pain to endure and obstacles to overcome, and every adversity we undergo is necessary and important to our purpose and life’s work. Without some form of difficulties, disappointments, and obstacles, life would be boring without real purpose. All challenges are essential to our spiritual growth and personal development. Life is unpredictable. It is an interesting mixture of events both good and bad . Some days you are laughing and other days you are crying. Some days you are up and some down. Some days you have what you need and other days you don’t. Sometimes the events of life can come at you with such force and so suddenly and unexpectedly that even the best of us will find ourselves putting God on the witness stand and calling Him into question. When life hands you a heavy blow and knocks you down on the canvas of life…. Remember the challenge is not the issue.. The real issue is your response.
James 1:2-4 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
The devil can be really busy when face with obstacles in life. I say that because so many start losing faith in what the word says. This is what I say about the challenges in life or the challenges of the devil. My Revelation: If the devil is on your trail, that’s actually not a bad sign. It’s only an indication that you keep on winning and you don’t respond the way he desires. He’ll be back again! The enemy looks for a opportunity to return! So blow your nose, wipe your face and put your armor on and this time celebrate your victory.
As you grow in your challenges Remember: Our lives and future are secured in God, and whatever is God’s best for me I am going to worship my way through it. The enemy does not have the power to short circuit my flow of blessings from God.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair, persecuted , but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.
Think your life challenges as growing pains. Never pray for an easy life, pray for strength to endure the challenges of life. Much Love to Each of you in your journey of life.
