What your disadvantages or circumstances in life, believe that you can achieve anything with God’s providence. Anything is possible as long as you live – believe.
Is there anything you should fear when embarking on the journey of life? If you’re a devoted Christian, there should be neither fear nor doubt in your heart, but faith, hope and trust in God. Life isn’t always smooth sailing, but God assures He won’t abandon you on your journey. In Scripture we read:
“Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10
Life is more than just a journey towards one’s own goals and dreams. It is a journey of faith… a spiritual journey it is, and every day it will be a new one. It is a journey to believe in yourself and in God – in your capabilities and in God’s providence. As long as you live and have faith, anything is possible and there is no stopping you from achieving your potential.
But as mentioned earlier, it will be no smooth sailing. You will experience tough times ahead, face many disappointments, doubt God and yourself, and feel the temptation to give up. But you will also have time to renew your faith, replenish your strength, and refresh your hope. Know that God will test your faith every time you feel overwhelmed by the care and stresses of this life. Times will be tough, but you must overcome the temptation to give up.
Nothing is impossible with God
God never gives us more than our share of life’s issues, which we can overcome when we have faith in Him. A major aspect of that faith is to trust God that nothing is impossible with Him. He will help us take care of all that we cannot handle on our own. The Scripture says:
For nothing will be impossible with God. – Luke 1:37 NASB
Looking at them, Jesus said, “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.” – Mark 10: 27
In short, we need to trust God in His wisdom and saving power.
How big is your faith?
How big is your faith in God? How big is your faith in yourself and in your dreams? Do you believe you can achieve anything – with God’s help? The Scripture says:
And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.” – Matthew 17:20 NASB
What kind of faith does God expect of you should you experience setback and trails? There will be times when you disappoint others or yourself when you suffer some kind of failure or setback, but you can “remove mountains” if you have faith in God. If you pray with expectant faith, He will give you the means to overcome all challenges in your life. When you face difficulties and obstacles, how do you respond? With firm faith and trust in God?
