If you take a moment and think about yourself,what would be the best thing you could do for yourself right now, given the uncertain and stressful time you are facing?
Look around you. Most people are stressed and worried.
The events itself do not cause stress and worry. It’s how you react and respond to the circumstances in your life that create your life experience, good or bad.
We learn from the Bible that we should walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). Walking by sight it will disconnect us from God’s power.
I am sure that God wants to hear our concerns, anger and confusion in our trials, but He also wants us to focus on Him and acknowledge that He is in control of the situation and will guide our every step just as He promised.
We need to stand up above our circumstances and having the right attitude in our thoughts.
If you’ve had a tough week, a tough month, or even a tough year, fill your cup full of appreciation for who God is. Remember the character of God, the works of God, and the promises of God.
Faith is not knowing about what the future holds, but knowing who holds the future.
How do you respond to the circumstances of your life? How do you stand up above the circumstances?
