Challenges may come and go but through it all the existence of God is unquestionable.
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–His eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen (Rom 1:20)
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handy work. (Psalm 19:1). Imagine the wonder working power of God in your life, the air you breathe in. Even little things that we sometimes take for granted like clothes to wear, water to drink, life, good health can be motivators to praise Him during our low times or challenging times.
You may have gone through a wilderness experience like in the case of the children of Israel in the bible but the end result is a fulfilled promise just like God did for them in Joshua 21:43-45
‘So the LORD gave to Israel all the land of which He had sworn to give to their fathers, and they took possession of it and dwelt in it. 44 The LORD gave them rest all around, according to all that He had sworn to their fathers. And not a man of all their enemies stood against them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand. 45 Not a word failed of any good thing which the LORD had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass’.
Some motivators in challenging times….
1. Remember that His grace is available and tap into it.
2. Look back at what He has done and let the knowledge of who He is motivate you to praise Him. The Israelites did this as they remembered how He took them through the red sea and delivered them from Pharaoh.
3. Remember there is a fulfilled promise of possessing your possession (Joshua 21:43)
4. Claim the promise of all round rest that will make you forget that you ever waited. Joshua21:44.
5. Remember that there is a promise of deliverance and claim it (Joshua 21:44)
6. What has God promised you? Not one of the words will go unfulfilled (Joshua 21:45).
May I just digress a bit and admonish you with this:
A popular man of God who attended an atheist school was asked how he was still able to keep His faith in God despite being made to believe consistently in school that there was no God. He replied that his parents’ part in taking him to church and telling him about God so early in life had moulded him to the state at which it was too late for the atheist believe to convince him otherwise.
If you are reading this blog and your challenge is your child. If you have laboured in prayers and training over them, be rest assured that there is a joy of answered prayers coming your way soon.
Joshua by the grace of God laboured for the children of Israel and passed what he knew, had seen and heard about God on (Joshua 24: 14-27). The children of Israel were determined to serve God, following his admonishment and they did (Joshua 24: 31).
Your case cannot be different. Be rest assured that your challenges will turn into a testimony….not many days from now……
