Determined to Overcome
And He arose and rebuked the wind and said to the sea. Hush now! Be still. And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. Mark 4:39
Thankfully, there is no storm in life that is greater than the power and purposes of God. When you refuse to allow your difficulties to impress you, then they will not oppress you and depress you either. If you put your focus on the Lord, you will hold steady in the storm and arrive safely at your God-appointed destination.
Any time we try to step out and do something for God, the enemy will oppose it. Paul certainly experience this, He wrote in 1 Corinthians 16:9." For a wide door of opportunity for effectual has opened to me...and many adversaries."
Paul experience opposition, and you will too, I encourage you to make up your mind that you're going to do what God is telling you to do. Don't be double minded, second guessing your decision. Determine to push through and refuse to turn back. Trust the Lord, be thankful for His strength, and press on no matter what.
Lord, Thank You, that there is nothing too difficult for You. Help me to lean on You when there is a storm raging around me. I put my focus on You today, and I refuse to be impressed by my problem. I choose to be in awe of You instead. In your name we pray. AMEN
