Early this morning, I was awakened by the presence of God…and as I sat up in bed, with pen and paper in hand, this is what I wrote down… “Do we try and ignore the circumstances we face in life…because maybe we feel that if we face these moments for what they really are; then we will see ourselves as a failure?
One thing God has truly shown me over the years; is that it’s Satan who wants us to see our circumstances in this way…because if he can convince us that our circumstances only bring about failure in our lives; then he just may also be able to keep us caught up within that unresolved circumstance.
The encouraging thought that I would like to leave with you today; is to turn your thinking around and let the circumstance teach you something new…and walk you into something new, rather than allowing it to bring you further down.
In Philippians 3:13 we read… “Brothers, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead.” If we can see our circumstances as lessons to be learned, rather than living up to standards that only cause us to fall to a place where we see ourselves as failures; then like Paul…we will be able to bypass what Satan is attempting to do and convince us of…and instead of believing that we are a failure; we will find that we have chosen to press on, with a greater longing to learn…grow and become more like Christ.
