Weekly Challenge: Tackle adversity with the joy and peace Jesus Christ offers to each person.
Everyday believers face trials big or small and everyday God gives us the strength to overcome each adversity. There is no mountain to high or problem to big. We as believers need to remember our answers to every problem can be found in the scriptures of the Bible. The more we read the scriptures and increase our relationship with Jesus Christ, the stronger we become in our faith. This is the way to live in truth.
The Bible says trials will come to both believers and unbelievers. Trials are experienced to increase our faith and keep us trusting in God. There is not a person on earth that does not experience trials. The fall of man in the garden where the first sin was committed, opened the door to trials and tribulations and causing each person to be born into sin.
Before the fall of man, we were created to be spiritual, remaining filled up of the things of God to direct our body and mind in right living and choices, but instead so many people walk around empty letting their body guide their mind and spirit in wrong choices.
When we let our flesh become louder than our spirit, we will start agreeing with the world, twisting and turning reason and excuses as to why what we are doing is acceptable. Instead of choosing to be set apart we begin the spiraling downfall of defeat.
Shout through each day with joy and attention, with each breath praise the Glorious ways of God.
Let your spirit be louder than your body.
Remember, no darkness can hide in the light, and no storm can change your eternal destiny. Stay filled up in the spirit, leading your mind and body to reflect the image of Christ. By doing this God can direct your path into increase. It may be less traveled, but it will be more victorious.
1 Corinthians 15:22
For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.
Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned--
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
