-“We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.” – Chuck Swindoll
So often in life we are faced with situations that seem impossible to overcome. It’s easy to look at them and feel like a victim, saying; “why God, why are you putting me through this?”
God’s answer opens up a new perspective; “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”
Gods Word says to “count it all joy” when you face “impossible situations,” Why? Because these challenging moments in our lives are really opportunities to GROW, to come to the end of ourselves and place our dependance more and more on God! These are the moments that define us, it’s the walking through the Fire moments, where God melts away the bad parts of us and creates in us the good parts of Him. There’s purpose in the pain we face, and God is using it to produce something beautiful in our lives, something greater than we could ever create on our own.
Whatever you may be going through today, even though they seem like impossible situations, see them in God’s light as what they really are; great opportunities!
No longer complaining or playing the victim role in these moments, but embrace these moments with JOY because God is opening up a door to endless opportunities!!!
