God doesn’t move out of our Anxiety, He works on Faith.

One of the most frustrating things is to experience hard times when you feel that you are living right.

God doesn’t move out of our anxiety, He works on faith. Many people simply tend to give up when times get hard, but you must know that God is always in control.
Lets look at Job's life.  Job was a righteous, Man of God. The devil could not touch him because God protected him. God told the devil he will remove the hedge so he can do whatever he want, just don’t touch him. God ALLOWED the devil to kill what Job loved: his children, his servants and even his cattle. Understand what just happened. The things that Job loved were taken away because he lived a holy life and God wanted to use him. Many of us would have left church if we were doing everything right and still circumstances grew worse. However, Job didn’t curse God and after his period of testing, God gave him double for his trouble (Job 42:10).

Jesus waited until Lazarus was dead and his body was rotting before He came to deliver Lazarus. He didn’t rush because of Mary or Martha, He had a plan that human minds didn’t understand.  Jesus waited until everyone gave up hope before He worked the miracle. God doesn’t make you struggle to make a fool of you, everything He does brings glory to His name and souls to Christ. Many Jews turned to Christ after they saw Him raise Lazarus.

Everything you have been through has a purpose. No one can say you “deserved” to be raped, abused, mistreated, etc., but someone else will go through it and your testimony will be their deliverance. Don’t breakdown, God wants you to breakthrough. No one can obtain the promises of God without going through the process. God uses affliction to build our character and our spirit, don’t think it’s meant to destroy you. If you endure, there is a blessing waiting on you.

Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivered him out of them all. (Psalms 34:19)

Don't Let Your Spiritual House Be Filled With Junk

Spiritual hoarding is just as bad or in most cases much worse than hoarding things. Is your Spiritual House Filled with Junk?  Don't be a Spiritual Hoarder. We have to by God's Grace, Learn how to let things go. All too often we  want to hang on to past hurts, anger, pride, and  jealously. These feelings of the past just hang around and are put in one mental closet or another and serve no purpose but to clutter up our mind. Too often we want to take out some of these treasures and re-visit them. We are so busy hanging on to our past hurts that we are hindered from growing in God. We wonder why it seems that God never hears our prayers. In many cases we are still angry at people who are dead and can’t right their wrong, but we stay angry anyway.  We forget sometimes that God has forgiven us of a great debt; and yet we won’t forgive another.  We didn’t deserve to be forgiven,  but He did anyway. Do some house cleaning today. Get rid of the junk you’re holding on to, give it to God and let Him deal with it. Free your mind of the clutter and grow. Don't let your spiritual house be filled with junk.

We represent God and God is not rundown

We represent God and God is not rundown. God is not second class. He is an excellent God. God honors excellence from each of us. Just think, we have God's DNA all over us.The design code that God created in all of our cells. You are not a second class citizen.  If you want to please God, don't go around looking run down, defeated and depressed. Your life will go to a whole new level by speaking faith and victory. Prayer changes everything because it releases God's wisdom into your circumstances.

What If Everyone Worked With God In Mind?

Work as if you were serving the Lord, not as if
you were serving only men and women.
                -Ephesians 6:7
Suppose no one worked to satisfy self or please the bottom line but everyone worked to please God. Many occupations would instantly cease: drug trafficking, thievery, prostitution, nightclub and casino management. Certain careers, by their nature, cannot please God. These would cease. Certain behaviors would cease as well. Imagine if everyone worked for the audience of One.  Every nurse, thoughtful, every officer, careful, pastors & singers would glorify God not self, every professor, insightful, every salesperson, delightful, every teacher, hopeful, every lawyer, skillful.  Impossible?  Not entirely. Let's shift the focus back on God in all we do, let's work with God in Mind.

Don't Let Your Temporary Situation Become Everlasting

We already got the best that God has to give. We just need to receive it!  God wants us to start paying attention of just how much he loves us. Trust God, He knows what you need and will give you all of it in due time!  God has people already lined up to be a blessing to you. You don't have to look for them. They will come to you. When you honor God, His blessings will hunt and chase you down. You won't be able to outrun the good things of God. Believe that something good is going to happen to you today! Claim your blessings every day!  Don't let your temporary situation become everlasting. When God is in it there is no limit.

What God has in your future will take the place of what you've seen in the past. Release your faith for the abundance and variety of your destiny that God wants for you. Something out of the routine and ordinary is coming your way; new levels of favor, unexpected and astonishing opportunities, or divine connections.

Go back and review Psalm 23, and pay close attention to verse 6... "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:..." Let those words sink down into your spirit. Know who you are. You are the child of the Most High God! You are truly somebody.
