How do you Face the Circumstances?

We have the choice to accept that every circumstances of life that comes our way has a purpose, or we can blame other people, the environment we live in, the devil, or even God for the challenges that circumstances may bring.
Instead of relaxing and resting in God and enjoy our relational journey with Him and allow Him to clean us from our selfishness and self-righteousness by learning from the circumstance that could smooth out our rough edges and eliminate our dependence on the systems of the world that promise instant gratification to our egoistic nature, we fight against the pricks, curse them in the name of Jesus and refuse to learn the lesson we should learn to bring us closer to God and further away form selfishness and arrogance.

You are more than the sum total of your experiences because you have Christ living inside you.

God may allow adverse circumstances into our lives in order for us to realize that our way of living and thinking is wrong and needs changing. Once He does this, then we really have choices for the first time in our lives. We can choose Him or ourselves.

If I love Jesus and want to be close to Him, the Source of that is good, challenges will be the norm. Therefore, don’t fight the hard times. Choose to let Jesus use them to draw you closer to Him. Make the small choices each day, and guess what? You will live in His grace and love and deliverance will come.

Through circumstance we become strong.

A.W. Tozer said it this way, “When I understand that everything happening to me is to make me more Christ-like, it resolves a great deal of anxiety.”
