The circumstances, that you see are not too big for ME and I AM not intimidated by any enemy. You are focusing on the hurt, have you considered the Grace? MY grace is overflowing and in vast abundance, you will never be cut off.
Pressure is a revelatory force. Under pressure a man’s true heart is revealed, both the good and the bad. What is bureaucracy and what is faith, what Is beautiful and what is grotesque are all made known in the times of trouble.
Change your perspectives on your predicaments. Look for MY face and look in the mirror, there is some ugliness inside you, that is being revealed. As the challenges arise from the inside, revealed through this season of pressure, Trust ME with those outcomes.
The stretching is uncomfortable. It will be humbling as your facades are exposed and the false edifices torn down. These stressful moments are designed to expand your capacity for more. The pressure is for growth and the grace is for healing.
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation, and the rich in his humiliation, because like a flower of the grass he will pass away. For the sun rises with its scorching heat and withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beauty perishes. So also will the rich man fade away in the midst of his pursuits. Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
