Day 4 of 21......
Dealing With Trials and Difficulties 1Chronicles 4:9-10; Job 20:15
One of the greatest mistake an individual can make in 2016 is to think that there won't be trials and difficulties along the way.
Like most events of life; trials have no respect for any man. It comes without an invitation and can destroy, maim, or even render a life useless.
At the same time, going through difficulties and trials has helped many to be the best in the journey if life. Your attitude towards what you are going through in life determines the outcome you will get from the same.
Jabez, in our text today, was a disadvantaged person. His life was one of stagnation, shame and struggle, yet, he came out strong and better because he had a positive attitude towards his trials and difficulties.
Your family background, failures of the past, careless attitude etc should NOT be a limiting factor. Jabez knew who to contact, where to direct his energy to, and his story changed for good. He cried out to God fervently for a change of story and God answered.
May God deliver us from every trials and difficulties in our path this year in the name of Jesus, Amen.
1. Lord, thank you for giving me the opportunity to develop the right attitude toward life in this 2016.
2. I overcome every difficulties and trials in my path in this 2016, and I received every needed insight, wisdom and connection to overcome trials and become great in this 2016 in the name of Jesus.
3. Lord, let whatsoever has swallowed my glory and riches, (and is making me live in perpetual trial and difficulties) begin to vomit them now in the name of Jesus. (Job 20:15)
