Imagine how radically different our life’s would be, if we were responsive to God in every bad situation instead of allowing our minds to go straight to discouragement.
Today I challenge you to take your problem to God and discuss it openly. Be completely honest and blunt, pouring everything out before God. When you get to the end of your rant, tell God you don’t understand what’s going on, and you do not know what to do, however, you are going to trust Him.
Then put your words into practice and trust God with your whole heart. Lean on Him as you think about and deal with your problem. As the discouraging thoughts come to your mind, keep reminding yourself to trust God and not lean back on your own understanding or your natural reactions.
Trust God! Be strong and have courage. Your God is with you!
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go (Joshua 1:9)”.
