Mountaintops and Valleys
When you are serving your purpose as God intended, you can be sure there will be mountaintops and valleys. Both will be equally important in your journey with Christ.
It won’t always be smooth sailing just because you are in line with what He wants you to do. There will be amazing moments where everything seems to fall into place, and there will be defining moments where everything seems like it’s falling apart.
How you handle yourself when things are good is one thing, it’s another thing to see how you handle yourself when things are not going good. The disappointments that will most definitely come at some point can either take you to the next level or hold you back from all that God has planned for you. In the end you are the one that decides how disappointments affect you.
If you are in a place where things just aren’t going the way you imagined they would, don’t give discouragement room to linger in your mind. Remember what good God has done in your life and how He has come through for you in the past. He isn’t blind to what is going on, or deaf to your calls for help. He knows and He cares a great deal for what you are going through.
Strengthen yourself with scripture and pray even when you least feel like it. Cry out to Him for direction. Don’t give up and don’t give in to pressure! Instead give Him all of you, all over again! Surrender despite your circumstances, and hold on to the promises of God. He will come through and meet you at the right time to answer you, comfort you and fill you with strength to continue pressing forward!
“The Lord hears His people when they call to Him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; He rescues those whose spirits are crushed. The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time. For the Lord protects the bones of the righteous; not one of them is broken!”
