This year, 2017, learn to exercise your faith. I share all the time how my circumstances has allowed me to grow in wisdom and to exercise my unwavering faith. Prayer is the key to any given situation and faith is believing the impossible. I choose to stand on God’s report. Marinade on all of the things He’s done for you. Do any of us deserve His mercy and grace? Absolutely not! I don’t care what the circumstances are God is able to turn it around. He will make your enemies see the good in you and they can’t phantom what happened. He will show a haughty- spirited person how to be kind and loving towards you. You keep walking in faith.
Pray for those who have wronged you and don’t seek revenge. Love them in spite of their unpleasant ways. Treat them with kindness; only a fool will reject love. God hears your prayers and He will do several things: change you, change your view of them, change them, or remove them out of your life. Whatever the outcome may be, God will do what’s best for you.
“A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.” You don’t change your beliefs on a whim. Study God’s Word and be sure of His promises and precepts. Don’t waiver in your faith. Everything that is in print/spoken is not true. Use wise judgment. In addition, base your decisions on your experiences with God and how the Word of God has changed your life for better.
I’ve seen myself grow over the past few years. Things that I said I wouldn’t tolerate, I do because God is working on and through me to reach others. Our lives are testimonies for people to see that you can change if you have a willingness to do so.
Be encouraged. Keep the faith. Forgive the unforgivable. Love unconditionally. Seek God in everything.
