For many of us being pessimistic about our trials is the norm. We have to watch out for that. If we are not careful we can forget all the promises of God when we let fear take over our lives. We are told that Jesus has already won the victory and all we have to do is believe and obey. Then God will turn things around for us for His Glory sake. His Glory is always based on love. And we all want to be truly loved especially for ever. We have to see God as our loving Father. Head knowledge won’t save us in a crisis. We have to really believe God is love and that He is all Wisdom. If we step out in faith and trust we will see God’s promises fulfilled. Most of us rather put our trust in what we see. What we see is only temporary. What is eternal is what we can’t see. God is more real than what we are. Trusting God is proof of our love for Him is real. We get tested a lot so that we will grow in all virtues, such as faith and trust. If we always live sheltered lives we will never grow and become strong in the Lord.
Deuteronomy 20:3-4. Do not fear or panic or be in dread of them, for the Lord your God is He who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.
Psalm 118:14. The Lord is my strength and my song; He has given me victory.
