Are You Facing Some Challenges?

Are you facing some challenges in your life right now? If so, rejoice! "Count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. Let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing." (James 1:2-4)

We all know that athletes need endurance training for physical stamina and mental toughness. When game time arrives, he or she will be ready to do battle and will have a greater chance at victory. If the athlete does not go through the necessary preparedness, he or she may not even be allowed into the game.

Do we really think we can just ask God for some great position in life with out any preparation? Not hardly. Read Psalm 107. This chapter tells us that God sometimes brings storms into our lives to accomplish a purpose in us. And that purpose, I believe, is to prepare us for greater things.

If you're facing challenges today, ask God to hold you up, strengthen you, and help you learn what He is trying to teach you. "Blessed is He who endures." (James 1:12)

Please keep in mind that not all storms in our lives are from God. Many times, we can create our own storms by making poor decisions. The best thing to do in these cases is to ask God to help you learn from your mistakes.

God can use your own storms to teach you things and use them to bring you increase. "All things work together for good to them who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose." (Romans 8:28)

Be encouraged if things are not what you think they should be. God has a wonderful plan for your life and He may just be working on the inside of you right now. God is faithful to His word! Remember, "The desire of the righteous shall be granted." (Proverbs 10:24)
