I was talking this week on frustration because we all face it from time to time in our lives. Many, like myself, are going through some physical ailments, sickness or disease. Others are going through financial difficulties or relationship problems or just trying to figure out what God wants for their lives; the list of frustrations in our lives are too many to list.
What I have found is that our Heavenly Father has an answer for all things. Our Lord Jesus died and rose from the dead so we could overcome any situation that arises in our lives. The question is really; do you believe it? Do you believe that He overcame the grave so that you can walk in total victory in this life, not just in the life to come? We are to be more than conquerors in Christ Jesus when we follow after Him!
What I did today is listed a few scriptures for you to meditate on. Scriptures that will support you during times of frustration, times of sickness, times of financial difficulty, times of question or times of relationship strain. There are many many more in the bible for you to find. Every answer you are looking for is written in His Word or can be found by spending intimate time with Him. Remember also that when meditating on His Word; Speak them out loud and thank Him for the answer! The answers, the healing, etc. is ALREADY YOURS! You just have to receive it! How do you do that, by speaking and thanking! Faith come from hearing; listen to what you are speaking into your life.
Choose today to spend your every days with Him. He has all that you need, He is all that you need! He is our everything!
I hope you find the following scriptures helpful. I pray that whatever you are going through or whatever needs you have, that you will find REST in the one who will deliver you!
