Happy Sunday. Hoping everyone has had a great weekend so far. I have to admit my weekend has been challenging.
Life happens and we will face different situations. At church this morning my pastor taught on Faith (Good Report) or Fear (Bad Report). It was a great message and so timely. It was based on Numbers 14.
The message really made me think about something my family is dealing with right now and what report I was going to believe. Many times fear tries to take over and all you can focus on is what appears as a "bad report". Yes, the "situation" is real and it does not appear good however if we let faith take over we can see a God report coming out of a bad situation. Does that make sense?
Today I am choosing, no matter what happens or what the outcome of what we are facing is, to operate in faith and believe the God report. Yes the opposition looks strong, yes this situation is hurtful, yes I am in touch with reality however God is bigger, God is greater, God is able. God can turn this situation around for the good of those who love Him. I will not allow fear to destroy my faith and the good report of the Lord.
No matter what we face in life, we always have a choice on how we will handle different situations.
Be encouraged Treasures.
2 Corinthians 4:7 (AMP)
However, we possess this precious treasure [the divine Light of the Gospel] in [frail, human] vessels of earth, that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to be from God and not from ourselves.
