I think that a lot of the times we tend to define ourselves according to our troubles.
We are victims, we are picked on, we are divorced, widowed, addicts, unemployed and unworthy, you get the picture. We look at ourselves as if who we are is measured by what we are going through.
If we are living on this earth, we are going to have trials and tribulations. If we look at ourselves solely as the sum of our troubles is it any wonder that everyone else soon does the same? As long as we are defining ourselves in terms of our troubles we will never be free from them.
There is one big thing that we tend to forget I think.
No matter what we are going through we are still God’s child. No matter how stormy the weather or how choppy the seas, we still have our destiny. God’s presence does not depend on whether we are living in pleasant or turbulent times.
So yes we might be living through any amount of trouble but we must never forget we are so much more than all that.
We are also healed, loved, raised up, redeemed, His workmanship, justified, worthy, purchased by the blood of the Lamb. We are clothed with the righteousness of Jesus.
Endure, stay in the fight for our Life coach is always with us.
He is with us no matter the circumstances, “I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go” Genesis 28:15
We already possess all we could ever need. No matter what Satan has laid down for us, no matter the storm that is raging around us. We still have our destiny. God prepared it, Jesus assured we would receive it.
If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. (2 Tim. 2:12)
