In facing daily challenges and worries, we as believers ought to find a way to stay happy even when our circumstances are weighting us down. We may not receive a breakthrough as fast as we’d like or maybe the people around us aren’t what we’d like them to be.
Roman 12:3 says “God has allotted to each of us a measure of faith.” Are we putting our faith in ourselves? Are we trying to change our own circumstances through our own strength? Are we trying to manipulate the people around us to change the way we want them to? Are we playing the blame shifting games to gain more approvals and validations? If we are, we are on the wrong track.
No matter what our plans and resources are, we will fail if we do not heed God’s wisdom and guidance in our lives. Let’s study HIS words, pray for HIS direction and trust HIS leading before we step out in any venture of faith.
Your way or God’s way?
For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.
