3 KEY SCRIPTURES TO MEDITATE ON THROUGH TRIALS AND STORMS!

Some years ago I remember sitting in my house confused and frustrated with life. I felt that my life was at a standstill, faced with limitations and lack of progress it felt like I was going round in circles. You know when you are in-between a rock and a hard place where you have God but because of life’s problems you have convinced yourself in your head that all you have is your dreams and vision and nobody else. I know we all understand that God is always with us and promises to never leave nor forsake us, but have you ever just felt like He has shut His ears and turned His back on you?

I was so broken and in my brokenness and weakness I told God in my mind/heart “You’re very mean and you do not care about my well-being and therefore I am not praising you anymore” Though I knew this line of thought not to be true, it felt very comfortable and satisfying as I wallowed and drowned in self-pity. Anyway, the longer I allowed these thoughts to consume my mind that day I found that I began to just cry uncontrollably and instead of further having another go at God I found myself worshipping and praising in the midst of my pain and quickly forgetting that not so long ago I was having a go at God. As I worshipped and praised this word came to my heart;

Isaiah 55:8–9

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

In that moment I realised that no matter what I go through I should count it all Joy.

James 1:2-8New King James Version (NKJV)

Profiting from Trials

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 

We have been conditioned to instant gratification and no longer find beauty in the wait. Our human reasoning even goes to the extent where we think we can bribe God with our tears “Because tears are a language that only God understands” right? Isn’t that what we have told ourselves and in the process we also forget God understands the language and posture of our hearts. I want to encourage you to be patient, even though your dreams and vision may be taking too long to manifest; but what is God saying about everything that concerns you? Every vision is for an appointed time, wait for it though it may tarry it will come to pass.

Always remember that you are Gods seed. Though you may fall on concrete ground you will germinate and shoot up because in Christ you are unstoppable for He is your refuge. So when life throws you in the deep end, rest assured that He will give you the ability and strength to swim to the other side and come out stronger, more seasoned and experienced.

Affirmation of the Day:

Psalm 91:2, “This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.”

  47. I’m the co-founder of JustCBD company (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently planning to expand my wholesale side of company. It would be great if anybody at targetdomain give me some advice . I considered that the most effective way to do this would be to talk to vape shops and cbd stores. I was hoping if anybody at all could recommend a reliable web-site where I can get Vape Shop Business Marketing Data I am currently checking out creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the most ideal choice and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
