I’ve had many opportunities to turn my back and walk away because of disappointments that have tried to DEFINE and shape my life! Define means to mark out the boundary or limits. The devil wants to draw boundaries to confine us permanently according to current circumstances, which is a trap that can be avoided.
It’s a choice!
It’s not always easy to make the right choice, but it has always been beneficial to my life. I’ve discovered when I determine to…
…trust God with a cheerful heart (even when I don’t feel like it), despite the disappointment, God will cause things to turn around!
I remember a time being tapped in my life, and I was miserable with every aspect of my life. My heart was broken, and my hope was dim, but I had chosen to believe God had a way out and not try and figure out what it was on my own!
When we give God our heart with childlike faith, despite CIRCUMSTANCES, He gives abundance and joy back in return, because the direction of our attitude will determine the direction for our altitude in our life.
How high we go is a reflection of how high we place God! When GOD BECAME BIGGER in my heart than my problems in my life, my PROBLEMS BECAME SMALLER in my eyes.
I’ve learned to give God my heart at the onset of hurt, which is a vital key! The devil wants us to wait until he has broken our heart into a million pieces, with no hope of our lives ever being put back together, but God makes a way in the midnight hour. He has brought me hope in my most desperate of times!
No matter who, where, or no matter what our circumstances are or have been, or ever will be, God CAN and WILL turn things around! Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him.”
When we trust God with our whole heart, He is faithful to trust us with His provision for any area lacking in our life! If we serve God and trust Him, despite what the devil may have done, He will be faithful to show us the victory is already won!
