Do you feel frustrated about your circumstances? Probably what’s even more upsetting is that no matter how much you pray to the Lord asking Him to change your situation, no matter how much you trust the Lord… NOTHING changes. Or, maybe you aspire to achieve something in your ministry or in any other area, but you see that doors are being shut before you and there is no way you can move forward with your project?
We continue a series of videos from the event “Steady & Thankful In the Midst of the Storm” to encourage you and equip you as you are going through a hard time. In this video, you will find a few short testimonies where I speak about these kinds of experiences.
It was not easy to go through them, but what an amazing thing it was to see that all those situations worked for good, just as it’s written in Romans 8:28: “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
Time and time again, I witnessed how events that occurred and people I met, the experiences I went through all played a pivotal role in my life, and to my surprise, all of it really worked for the good. It still remains a mystery to me – circumstances that seemed to me to be not good turned out to be for my benefit.
I did NOT like my circumstances but after some time, I SINCERELY THANKED my God for them, because I realized that they were beneficial and very valuable to me. Furthermore, they led me to the fulfillment of my dreams!
So I want to encourage you to make a decision to trust God. Even though you don’t like your situation and nothing changes despite your prayers and faith, make a choice to trust that the Lord has everything under control and He works out everything for good.
Meanwhile, do the best that you can in any given circumstance (it’s critical) and wait for God to show you when it’s time for you to move forward. The good thing done at the wrong time can be a big – BIG – mistake. So it’s better to lower the selfish ambition and do everything according to God’s will and in His timing.
