When your back is up against the wall!

All of us face moments in our lives when we are backed into a corner and we feel like there is no way out. Whether it’s a difficult situation at work, an issue in a relationship, financial difficulty or sickness, life’s circumstances can sometimes be overwhelming. Where you turn to and what you do during these difficult times reveals a lot about your character and whom you are placing your trust in.

The apostle James had this to say in James 1:2-4, “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete lacking in nothing.”

I know this may be difficult for you to swallow but according to God we are to consider it a joy when we meet trials of various kinds because when our faith in God is tested, it actually produces steadfastness in our lives (This is a good thing). In a day and age where most people give up when life becomes difficult, the Christ follower is to remain steadfast because when steadfastness matures in our lives we actually become complete and whole in our faith walk.

Whatever you are faced with today, don’t check out and run away. Look at your circumstance squarely in the eye and declare, “This too shall pass.” Faith is your shield that blocks the opposition coming against you and gives you hope that God will make a way for you. Be steadfast!

Lead the Change!
