Some Bible principles won't make sense to many. It usually won't make sense to the human mind because the things of God usually defy common sense and there is a rich reward for those who have faith to believe in the impossible. God's ways are not your ways and His thoughts are not your thoughts. Just as heaven is higher than the earth so are His ways higher than ours. When we try to wrap our heads around spiritual matters, we can't fully understand them until the results start manifesting.
If you are facing a problem, you have two options: You can worship or you can worry. You ask, how would worship solve my problem? Worship is an act of gratitude borne out of faith, telling God indirectly that you know what? This problem is beyond me and I am trusting you to handle it. I am trusting you to give me the wisdom to know what to do and quickly so I can do what you want me to do or act the way you want me to act. It's an intentional act of taking your focus off the problem and focusing on God. It's telling God, "I have done all I can, now it's over to you to do all that I can't."
Worrying is normal I must say because we are humans after all but when we dwell too long on worrying rather than acting and worshipping or praying to God, it's a sign that we don't have enough faith to move those mountains. When you choose to worry, then I must ask you, how strong is your faith? Never forget you are a child of God first, above anything and you have access to His authority through prayer. So, do not worry for too long, just pray!!! You are not only praying to change God's will but to bring yourself under the authority of His will. We receive instructions and directions when we worship and pray. Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen which means your reality would always be in sharp contrast to the things you are hoping for and praying or worshipping only means you have that assurance in faith that you will get it and you are ready to do what instructions God would drop in your heart to do.
When you experience a failure, it should never rob you of the reality of who you are in Christ because when He died on the Cross for you, He dealt with everything in your system – your failure, flaws and faults. Know this - your failure is not final but your salvation is. There would always be troubles in this world and Jesus prepared our minds for this. He said in this world we would have tribulations but we should be of good cheer because we have overcome the world. Our faith has overcome the world and we just need to exercise it.
If you are about to make a decision and God’s peace is not in your heart, back up, make that reverse or withdraw from it. There are tiny things we overlook which we shouldn't and that's what the Holy Spirit drops in our hearts. We should never trust that we have everything figured out because we are limited in every way but God can help us and work with our limitations. When peace is the umpire of your life, it will give you the progressive courage to do all He has called you to do. May His peace rule in your heart and mind in Jesus' name, Amen!
The event of these past few days made me know that God is indeed a prayer-answering God and I would share the story soon. Just a few lines of prayer to show how much I have faith in His ability and He showed up! He showed up in ways I never imagined even when frustration kicked in and it looks as though I was moving in circles. His love was made perfect in my weakness and He showed why He can influence the hearts of others to favour my righteous cause.
Thank you for your time.
