Look Beyond Your Challenges

Updated on October 8, 2019

Look Beyond Your Challenges


In life, humanity tends to be regulated by the state of things around them. As humans, the tendency is very high for us to allow our situation to determine our mood. Anxiety sets in whenever you look at your need and challenge. However, the will of God is for you and me to set our attention on Him and not on any challenge that might be confronting us.

Let me remind you about the ability of God to do all things. God is more than enough and able to meet all needs. Instead of allowing the devil to make you look at your challenges, be strengthened in your inner mind to focus on the Elshaddai. Don't allow the negativity of the world to get into your head neither should you allow state of things to redefine your identity. You should bear in your mind that tough times are to strengthen you and make you strong. It is not meant to break you or restructure your destiny. Therefore, just look beyond your challenges and focus on the Almighty God.

Kindly remember that roses have thorns to protect them from being eaten by animals attracted by their wonderful smell. So, your challenges are not to bring you down but insulate you from reckless living and calling your attention to your maker. Don’t view your challenges from the negative perspective but see it as a springboard to your success and open doors.

God made provision for everything you will ever need throughout your sojourning in the land of the living. There is nothing you will ever need that God has not made available. There are enough resources in God. You just need to locate where the resources you might need at a given time are kept and access it for your usage. Therefore, you must learn to look beyond your challenge before you can gain mastery over them. As long as you are looking at your challenge, you will not be able to make any significant progress. The cares and worries of what could be your challenge would weigh you down and you would see yourself getting trapped to a particular condition. Therefore, be positive.

In conclusion, develop a good confidence in God. You need not to run helter skelter for your need. Rather, come unto Him and seek His face for divine guidance and direction. You are destined to reign in life. You are programmed for the top. You are with a definite difference in God. Come to the consciousness of your identity. God's divine power has given us all things that pertains to life (2Peter 1:3-4). The Lord be with you in all things.
