NOAH ~ built the ark when there was no rain
ESTHER ~ stood before a king with an outlandish request.
DANIEL ~ was in a lion's den with no obvious protection.
DAVID ~ ran for his life from an angry, jealous king.
MARY and MARTHA ~ sick brother died.
PAUL and SILAS ~ were trapped in prison at the midnight hour.
In each of these examples, hope seemed lost. It takes us standing the wilderness at times to trust the Lord. Nope, things do not always go our way. God uses each circumstance for his glory. Just know this, God is able to step in at any given moment. Be careful not to become divided from God when you don't see an answer that you wanted. Moses knew impossible situations but he gives us four things. Be fearfulness, Be Still, Be Watchful and Be Silent. ~ Priscilla's book
WHEN THINGS SEEM IMPOSSIBLE ~
I continue to learn daily and I know that sometimes God doesn't answer the way I think. I have seen the journey of life turn a road that shocked me. Yet, I find the peace of God continues along the journey. God has a way of reminding us of his miracles of past, the courage to face our now and trust him. Think about it for a minute, is there someone you just trust in life? You just know that person will be there for you. That's how God is in our lives. He is right here for us no matter what.
Philippians 4:7 New International Version (NIV)
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
When I was younger, I didn't understand how peace could be in the middle of a hard situation. So many questions of why, how come, what, when and the list goes on. Then one day, I heard a message on the peace of God. Putting Jesus in your heart is the beginning, but we need to grow in him. We need to learn his ways and know that our lives were given for a reason. A divide purpose from the beginning to the end. It's the in-between stuff that free will takes over. You have a free will do make decisions, live your life and go beyond that human thought of negative to pop in the positive ones. Speak words of life over yourself and others.
Hebrews 4:11-12 New International Version (NIV)
11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience.
12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword,it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
WHEN THINGS SEEM IMPOSSIBLE ~ Speak life
Proverbs 18:21 New International Version (NIV)The tongue has the power of life and death,
and those who love it will eat its fruit.
