*My IG Post @authorjordan1: God can give you messages through movies. Sometimes God will take you through the process that seems to be slower and tiring because it feels like that’s not the way to generate “fast” results. If you stick with the way he wants you to go and faint not, then the reward will be greater. It will be worth it!*
If you are going to be great, then there are certain tests that you must endure and pass. There is a certain amount of trials, tribulations and pain that you must push through. Do not become distracted and side track on whats happening for other people. You cannot compare yourself to everyone else, because not everyone else is going where you are going. There will be some people who you will have to leave behind. There are some old ways and thinking that you must destroy in order to get to the next level. Whatever you are enduring, it is all for a purpose. God has not forgotten about you. You don’t have to see or feel God in order to know that he is there. (Especially when things appear to not go your way). He’s teaching you how to be stronger and wiser.
He’s teaching you how to overcome your failures, struggles, disappointments and rejections until you won’t even flinch in the face of opposition. Waiting will build development, growth and improvement. Greatness cannot be rushed. You will reach a stage in life where the amount of suffering will not have any affect or impact on you continuing your walk. Sometimes the strongest thing that you can do is to keep walking in the midst of failure. Jog or crawl if you have to, but don’t give up. You cannot win if you give up. This fight and walk is not for everyone. See it not strange if you are on a narrow path. The Lord has chosen you to be different. It’s not easy and it’s challenging, but at the end it will be all worth it. ♥
1 Peter 4:12-13
12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
