“You will not need to fight in this battle. Stand firm, hold your position, and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.’…” 2 Chronicles 20:17, ESV.
There is a great quote that’s so true that says, “The only difference between a stumbling block and a stepping stone is how you use them.”
We all have challenges, but that doesn’t mean they have to have us. That doesn’t mean we cave in within them. That is the time to seek the Lord on how to rise above it. If God is on your side, a challenge is never the end-all. The Lord has given you hope and an expected end. Your challenge is your opportunity in disguise.
Your challenge is your opportunity to build your trust in God and to be blessed by God. It’s God’s opportunity to promote, provide, reveal, and make a way. It’s an opportunity to hold your watch Him save. Draw closer to Christ for wisdom, and hear Him speak to you something about your life beyond how things appear.
In these times, be confident and confront your obstacle. They will turn out to be opportunities for growth and strength for you. It is our decision on how to handle it, how to respond with faith in God, is what propels us forward.
Prayer: Father, thank You for giving me the right view on any challenge before me. Give me eyes to see what You see. This challenge is an opportunity in disguise. I ask for wisdom. Jesus, I receive Your courage today. You are doing something great for me and in me. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
