We as human can sometimes limit ourselves through our thinking and perspectives. When Jesus fed the multitude with five loaves and two fishes, He did so without questioning the lack of bread and fish enough to feed a crowd of five thousand plus (Matthew 14: 13-21). His disciples, on the other hand, thought so narrow-minded that they wanted to send the multitude away into the villages to buy themselves food.
Do not entertain lack. Do not entertain hardship. Do not entertain illness. Do not entertain anything that is not of God. But, if and when you do find yourself in such situations; speak into existence those things that are not as though they were (Romans 4:17). Speak into existence your wellness. Speak into existence joy, peace, and happiness. Speak into existence your success. Speak to it!
When you question how will it happen you also question God’s miracle. Ask yourself, “can I explain Miracle?” Your own business is obedience. Leave the complexity of the equation to God. You activate miracle through simplicity. Let the inventors deal with the complexity. Obey. Believe and accept what God has said about your life and act towards it.
Think like God.
Act like God.
Speak like God.
God can never be sad because in His presence there is fullness of joy. When you find yourself in hardship and sadness for too long, understands that God will not abandon you and will make known to you the path of life with fullness of joy and eternal pleasures (Psalm 16:10-11).
Do not approach situations as a victim, but rather as a victor. Because we operate by faith, you know your victory is still to come. So rejoice now just as much as you will rejoice when your victory comes. Romans 8:18 reminds us that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
1 peter 4:13 tells us to rejoice, in as much as we are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when His glory shall be revealed, we may be glad also with exceeding joy.
The Lord is our shepherd, we shall not lack!
