“This is my comfort in my affliction, that Your word has revived me and given me life” Psalms 119:50, Amplified.
The major key to developing the right perspective on life’s challenges is a constant view of God’s word. This is His written word, as well as what He has spoken to help you see what you experience His way. It is your constant view of your end and expectation. It may feel as if your trial is going to kill you; however, the truth is you will live and not die to declare the works of the Lord. You may not see how it is going to come to pass, but your perspective keeps you moving and you believe in something—you believe in what He says. Know what God says about you, and it will right now revive you.
You don’t have to become another man, one full of fear, anger and frustration in the face of adversity. Make His perspective your perspective. Let His word bring joy to you. It will fill your tank, build you and quicken you. It will help keep you handling your affairs with character. His word empowers you to go through whatever you are going through, not giving a temporary circumstance your permanent attention.
Prayer: Father God, I receive Your life-giving words and I thank You for the power it has to quicken me. All things are working for my good! My challenge could very well be my blessing in disguise. Strengthen me Lord by Your joy, and help me to see my life from Your point of view. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
