THE SITUATION AND GOD (1)
Exodus 13:17-18; Proverbs 24:10
Happy New Month! This month, I am going to share with you on how to experience a divine turnaround in your moment of breakdown as you apply God’s own principles. Man seems to be inseparable from troubles, and in most cases, it looks like God allows a lot of troubles to come our way in life to make and toughen us.
However, what you believe in the trouble, about the trouble, the outcome of the trouble, and your belief of God in times of stress and breakdown matter a lot. It speaks a lot about you! Prov. 24:10 (TLB), “You are a poor specimen if you can’t stand the pressure of adversity.” So, you can see that tough times reveal a lot about what you and I really are and truly believe.
Breakdown times are real! They are not a question of chance but of certainty. Breakdown in this context is speaking of those times when it looks like you are finished – times of sickness, opposition and great confusion in your heart (when you may not have done anything wrong, yet trouble has come).
Breakdowns are also times when REAL, not imagined problems have come. Times, when your little boat is tossed by the storms of life and you have to decide to move on or die. Times, when men mock you with “Where is your God now?” Times, when you have a FANTASTIC opportunity to worry, fret, give up, backslide or even curse God! You must learn faith and trust in God to turn that breakdown into a breakthrough.
PRAYER: Lord, help me not to waver in times of storm. I will call on You; I know You will answer me in Jesus’ name. Amen!
