When will I see that my progress, through my problems, is more beneficial than looking, focusing, only on those things that are trying, that hurt, and are hard to face? Where do I look? Where do I go?
So many times, our problems seem impossible to change, to ever get better. So many things are happening around us. So much seems to get in our way, distracting us, blocking us, so that we can’t see that God is there. There are times when situations are overwhelming and consuming.
But there is God!
God has been there, with you, with us, the whole time. Suffering is a part of life. Jesus, The Christ, suffered, greatly. Why would it be different for us? What’s next? When will it change?
“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” – Psalm 91:1 KJV
I (we) shall look towards God, who is my (our) Help! I (we) must shift focus towards Heaven and away from things that are attacking our Spiritual being. We wrestle against spirits, confusion, things earthly and things in the Spirit realm.
Dear God, Our Father. We come to say thank You for everything. Thank You for the good, and thank You for the bad. Lord, we admit to You that it is hard to see success when faced with situations that have failed, for now. Help us to see that You, oh God, direct us. You, oh God, are our shelter, our protection.
Lord, we look to You for help. Rescue us. Deliver us. Set us free. Help us to see as You see. Lord, You’re bigger than our problems. Lord, You’re bigger than our suffering. Help us to endure until the end. Help us to focus on the positive and look for You as our strength, our Way-Maker.
God, You designed us to prosper, to succeed! There is no failure in You! This prayer is signed, sealed, and delivered, to You, through Jesus The Christ, it is well with our soul, Amen.
Remember: The enemy is not going down without a fight! We are soldiers. We have to fight mentally, emotionally, and Spiritually. We must know The Word of God to use as a weapon, a shield. We must pray and praise. Finally, we must worship God for who He is!
2 Timothy 2:3-4 NKJV | New King James Version
3 You therefore must endure[a] hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4 No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.
Ephesians 6:12 KJV |King James Version
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Psalm 121:1-2, 3,5,7 NIV | New International Version
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from? 2 My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. 3 He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; 5 The Lord watches over you— the Lord is your shade at your right hand; 7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life; 8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
