What or who do you turn to when things get tough? We are sure to face adversity in our lives, and the confusion, fear, and doubt that comes with it. In these difficult times, we should strive to turn to God in faith, when we do, He can not only heal us but use our adversity as a platform for us to benefit His Kingdom! Don’t give up, stay faithful even when it gets difficult!
There is no question that we will face obstacles and adversity at some point in our lives. Often, when these situations arise, we are blinded by our current circumstances, and fail to look or plan ahead. When we partner with God in faith in these situations, then everything starts to change. We begin to see the bigger picture and experience a peace that seems impossible!
Turning to God can oftentimes make our situation much better in the present. Even though this may be the case, God is not done with us or the situation. God often uses difficulties in our life to shape us into valuable assets for His Kingdom! He uses the experience to develop us and launch us into His awesome plan!
No matter what you may be going through in your life or how bad it may be, God can shift it for good! So, next time you experience a difficult circumstance, strive to be tenacious in your faith, and open to God’s plan for your life! Persevere—do not let adversity make you quit!
