As you begin to sprout into the person God has called you to be, you realize that the process is a lot harder than it looks. You will face situations in your life that will cause you to ask, “Why is this happening to me?” or “How could things be so great and I was so full of joy and happiness but now I feel like this?” Maybe you feel slightly disappointed that what you hoped for would come true. Even though our worldly surroundings are changing, we can always count on God to carry us through whatever situation we face. We know that He is working out ALL circumstances, emotions, and encounters for your benefit and for His glory. If something or someone is removed from your life, you can have full confidence that God is working behind the scenes to provide you with something far greater than your mind can comprehend. When doubt creeps in, REJOICE for what He has done for you and thank Him for what He is doing. We must continue to move forward in our growth process, no matter are uncomfortable we are!
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. – Jeremiah 29:11
Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. – Philippians 1:6
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5-6
In what ways or situations are you facing that are causing doubt?
In what ways are you feeling uncomfortable as you grow into your new self?
How will you change your mindset to focus on God?
I want to thank you for what you have done for me and I rejoice in knowing you have a perfect future that you designed for me. Even though, I can’t see with my earthly eyes and I am feeling afraid, worried, and doubting you, please take these feelings and remind me turn to you when they start taking over. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
