Built for Tough Times

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)

There's no hopelessness for a child of God. It doesn't matter what you've faced or are facing in your life; the challenges aren't for your destruction. Not many know this; so, they faint in the face of trouble.


We're built for tough times.


2 Corinthians 4:17

"For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory."

Therefore, face tough times and win. The troubles you face are for your testimonies.


Isaiah 43:2

"When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee."

It makes no difference what comes against you, you're more than a conqueror.


Perhaps you're in debt, and all your lenders are after you, and it looks like there's no help in sight; don't give up. God has a plan for your life. You'll settle your credit; keep your faith alive. Refuse to allow depressing thoughts. God is bigger-- far bigger-- than whatever amount you owe as debt.


Maybe you've been given a negative diagnosis; trust the Name of Jesus! Irrespective of the pain or symptoms, keep declaring, "I know I'm healed; my body is vitalized by the Holy Ghost who lives in me!" There's someone living inside you that makes you impossible to defeat! No matter what you face, you win.


2 Corinthians 4:8-9

"We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed"

Why? The answer is in the preceding verse:


2 Corinthians 4:7

"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us."

Hallelujah!


Confession:

I take ahold of eternal life! I have prevailing faith. No matter what I face, all things work together for my good, according to the Word of God. I'm what God says I am; I have what He says I have, and I can do what He says I can do. Glory to God!
