Here are the only 2 attributes of God that make you victorious through challenges and temptations. Find them out.
It does not matter how the day was for you, it has ended. Yes, since you are still alive, then all opportunities are still open for you. Keep dreaming and hoping. Is that all?
Should you really be grateful because you are still breathing?
Oh no, not at all. You see, I am like you; I don't believe that we should be grateful because we are just breathing or existing, a tree or a stone is existing too. I believe we should be grateful only because we have lived the life we admired or desired.
But eh, wait a minute! Is that possible? Well, rightly put, I am saying we should be grateful if we are living the life we were meant to live. And what is that? Of course, good life. But what is good life?
By the way in the my first book entitled, The 3 Loves We Need, I explained what good life is in the chapter called, the life worth living. You should look out for that for sure. For now, move on
A Blessing in disguise!
Yes, the other day when I lost elections and failed to become the school information prefect, I sulked, but God was having something much better than that for me. What was it? In the next few days, I became the general school council speaker and my privileges were far beyond those of a prefect!
What! In other words, God shall not allow you to face frustrations if He had nothing much better thereafter. Whenever challenges and troubles hit you, be assured that something much greater is being launched for you.
But you may ask; Vicent, do you really mean so? How come some frustrations and troubles end up drowning us further into miserable? Yeah, this happens and often, but there is a cause. What cause? We shall answer this question in our next article. For now, move on and see!
Know these 2 about God
When in adversaries, I need you to master two attributes about God:
1. God loves you dearly. Yes, no matter how you feel about it or how hard and unlucky the day was, God loves and cares for you and all He wants you to have and be is good. He says in His word, "God works through everything to bring good to those who love Him" (Romans 8:28). Yes, that is how dearly loved you. He also says that He has a good plan for you; a plan to make a good and brighter future for you.
2. God is powerful and almighty. Yes, there is nothing that is out of control. God controls everything. The Bible says He controls the heart of a king and guides it like He guides water down a gully.
By the way, I wrote an article explaining how God's love can be revealed in what seems to be punishment or frustrations. Yes, read this article about The expulsion of Adam and Eve out of Eden and the Love of God behind it!
Back to our point;
Connect the two attributes and see the magic!
If God is powerful and He loves you so much, then whatever is happening to you is for good. He has good plans for you and He has not lost control over whatever pain or temptations you are going through. He will certainly deliver you and show you a better way out.
So as you go to bed my dear brother and sister, let this word be your inspiration. Let Jesus be your companion and friend even in that pain. Yes, I know sometimes pain is too much but I want to remind you that God, your father and friend understands that pretty well and He must be laying out plans to deliver you.
May the Holy Spirit guard and protect you tonight and all those you care about. And may He bring you happiness and success tomorrow and make it a better day for you than today. Amen.
Yes, I believe you can.
