Every hardship has a lifespan. Every problem has got an expiry date. Even a long-lasting problem will meet its match in our everlasting God!
No condition is permanent! Barriers will become bridges. Stumbling blocks will become stepping stones. Obstacles will become opportunities. So, wait your storm out.
Tough times don’t last, only tough men do. We go through in order to get through. And there is no breakthrough without a passing through. I like what Joyce Meyer once said, “There are no drive-through breakthroughs!” How apt!
If you will hold your ground and take your stand in faith, you will outlast your storms. Great storms have been known to give rise to great calm. And there is yet no great victory without great confrontation. The devil wouldn’t fight what he does not fear. It’s because your destiny is worth it, that’s why the conflict is this heavy.
“And it came to pass.” Tell yourself, “This too, will come to pass.” It came, not to stay, but to pass! Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. Glory! (See Psalm 30:5)
Escapism is no solution to a problem. Stay put, and go through what you are going through. (No pun intended.) Don’t be tempted to apply a temporary solution to a permanent problem. That’s what alcohol, drugs and stuffs like that gives you. And neither should you apply a permanent solution to a temporary problem – suicide!
Do not run from your hardship. If you cannot press on, hold on. If you cannot keep your head, keep your heart. It is never over until God takes you over. And it will never be over until you win! Enjoy your weekend. You will succeed!
