2 Corinthians 1:3 (NIV)
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,
God is Great and greatly to be praised! Just that statement right there is enough to carry me through my day! When I think of the goodness of God the atmosphere starts to shift. Thinking of His goodness my focus starts to align with Him. When my focus is Him I start to experience that perfect peace He talks about in His Word! (Isaiah 26:3)
The perfect peace of God leads to joy and whatever issues you may be going through right now gets minimized. As you start to magnify your Lord and Savior your issues become smaller. You start to see that God is bigger than your issue(s)! Hallelujah. Yes, the issue is still there but so is God. As you continue to praise Him and trust Him He starts to open your eyes to a solution or give you comfort and peace in the middle of it.
Usually, the solution has something to do with you. He will change your perspective renew your mind. He strengthens us when we are weak (2 Corinthians 12:9). You have to surrender to the Lord and let Him fight your battles!
I encourage you to soak up God’s Word. Put it in your heart. Once you do that and as you grow more in God, you will be like the writer (James 1:2-4) and count tribulations as joy because you know who God is!
If you have not accepted Christ as your personal Savior, I invite you to give Him a try. You won’t be sorry! Start living your Best Life! Accept Christ
Be encouraged! Keep believing! Keep trusting!
