It is easy to give all glory to God during times of victory and comfort, but the same cannot be said when we find ourselves embroiled in fear and uncertainty. God is naturally good, all-knowing, endowed with everlasting power and flawless timing. Those who dwell in His majestic fortress are shielded from harm. They wake up every morning with a clear consciousness of gratitude, for their faith cannot be swayed by any illusion which may be suggested by evil forces from the outside world.
True believers are well-aware that their legs cannot walk on two separate paths at the same time, meaning that they place their minds on a single thought of truth all the time. Therefore, if you believe that you are safe in the house of the Lord, you have no valid reason to waste time on the window looking unto the harmful outside world of competition, self-judgement, gossip, impatience, jealousy, hatred, envy, greed and ingratitude – there’s nothing for you out there.
All the joy, peace of mind and strength already exist around you. Be content with who you are and what you have, your improvement will not be determined by anything else but your unshakeable belief that God is all you need. He has all the answers. His fountain of wisdom is eternal because He is the fountain and the wisdom. Any problem that arises in your daily life is, in fact, a reminder to keep your heart in the right place.
Weakness is a reminder of strength, fear is a reminder of courage, sadness is a reminder of joy, disease is a reminder of good health, death is a reminder of life and darkness is a reminder of light. God’s promise is not bothered by any circumstance. It pierces through mountains, it knows no limit. Look around you and you’ll find something to be grateful for. If you are reading this message it means that you are alive and that’s where you can start. Appreciate your life and trust that God will do the rest.
