There is a time and a season for everything. Everything has a reason and a purpose. Do not dwell on the things that are not working out. Focus on the good that it would be used for. All things come together for the good. All things. That means the events of your past and present will work for the greatness of your future. Your trials on this earth are only a test. Run your race. Its not the fastest, swiftest or smartest who wins. But those who endure until the end shall be victorious. Remember tough times do not last, but tough people do. Surround yourself with the boldness and courage of God.
Be consistent in all that you do. Do not be discouraged. Giving up is not an option. Even when people do not see who you truly are, you cannot allow them to confirm who you are. The best is always on the way and the best is yet to come. Do not be weary in well doing. Your hard work will pay off. Everything shall come to you and return to you in full measure. Speak those things as though they were. Operate through the power of faith and not in the natural of now. No man can take away the favor that God has showered upon your life. For God’s word, favor and wisdom is priceless.
Sometimes we concentrate on our weaknesses, rather than our strengths. We focus on what we are not skilled or equipped in. We might even tell God that we are not qualified to do his assignment because we do not excel in specific areas. For example, someone may feel that they do not have the speaking skills or courage to present themselves in front of a crowd. They feel that they can’t do what God is calling them to do because they are not gifted or confident in those areas, and maybe God can find someone better. Not only do we dwell on our weakness, but sometimes we operate in fear. Self doubt and fear will hold us back from everything that God wants us to receive. Self doubt is a closed door that can shut us away from the blessings of God. God knew before the foundations of the earth and before you were formed in your mother’s womb your fear, setbacks, and weaknesses. His strength is made perfect in weakness. You do not need to worry about what you lack, for his will shall be done through his power and strength. You have all that you need and there is nothing that shall go to waste. God is strategic. If he wanted to chose someone better he could, but he chose you. You are the perfect person to do his assignment. It is written in Matthew 22:14, for many are called but few are chosen. You were made to be a champion and an overcomer. Remember that you are more than a conqueror. Focus on God’s power, strength and might and you shall remain victorious. Its not about what you lack, its about operating in his will with his power.
