2 Chronicles 15:7 But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.”
Adversities are a necessity.They are part of the pattern of life’s journey for every individual. In life you will always encounter adversities but the blessing is always going to be found in how you respond in those times when your faith and everything you believe in is challenged or put to the test.
Walking with God is very important when you are going through adversities. You need to surround yourself with God’s word and pray at all times.The closer you draw near to God when you going through adversities, the closer God will draw near to you and He will make your burden light. He will turn your suffering into a future blessing and He will strengthen you, He will grant you the power over your trials and He will turn it all around for your good.
Romans 8: 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Everything you have encountered in life that has been challenging, painful and hurtful had to happen, so that God’s will in your life would be manifested, so that you can become the person God created you to be. Nothing you face today is meant to harm you but to make you a better version of who God predestined you would be. Most of the time God is pruning us and cutting off all the unwanted seeds off your life so that when He pours out His blessings upon your life, nothing will stand in your way.
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Every adversity you face in it there is an abundant blessing for you from the Lord. God will never bring you through so much, help you overcome so much and protect you from all the traps the enemy set before you, to forsake you now. He promised He will never leave you nor forsake you. God is greater than your adversity.
I know it gets so hard and challenging especially when you are going through adversity and sometimes you can’t seem to see something good coming out of your struggles. The suffering has overwhelmed your heart and all you see is failure, defeat and darkness. You have cried every tear and you don’t know what to do. If this is you I want to encourage you and tell you that God has never given up on you and His working something out for your good behind-the-scenes. You may not see it now but don’t lose hope, don’t lose faith because the best is yet to come.
There is a blessing in the midst of the chaos you’re facing right now. God is going to turn everything out for your good. Always know this when the going gets tough, when all hope is gone, when you can figure things out, remember you are blessed and highly favored of the Lord even in the midst of adversity.
