There comes a time in this walk of life when we are faced with trials and we have to rely solely on our faith in God. It’s one thing to know what the word of God tells you but what do you do when you’re faced with a scary situation.
Sometimes when trials comes, it’s so easy to focus on the negative aspects of the situation that we neglect to stand firm on the word of God. When faced with a difficult trial its easy to feel like you’re alone. It may seem as if all the people who were there before have gone and left you. Remember, the more you focus on what’s going wrong in your life, the more difficult it becomes to stand on the Word of God.
When we focus on the negative aspect of things, we are building up what is known as a scotoma. A scotoma is something that we’ve become conditioned to seeing or a “blind spot.” For instance, if you’ve always had a problem believing you will amount to anything, that is a scotoma that you’ve built up in your mind.
I do believe that we make our trials out to be worse than they really are, by the thoughts that we think. If the enemy can get into your mind and control your thoughts, then he knows that he’s got a chance of winning. He knows that if he can get you to see that you will never amount to anything, then he knows he has power of you.
Remember, Ephesians 6:12 tells us: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.“
My friend it’s not easy but I implore you to take a stand against the attacks of the enemy. He will do everything in his power to convince you that you are a failure but the Word of God tells us that we are victorious. We are more than a conqueror. There is no problem that God can not solve.
I encourage you to stay encouraged and don’t get discouraged. Don’t look for a pity party and go complaining and saying “Whoa it’s me,” instead look to the Lord in prayer. Philippians 4:7 tells us: “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Keep your head up and Let the peace of God guard your heart and mind as you go through your life journey.
