I am sometimes attacked by the devil because I have chosen as my life’s work to assist plundering his kingdom for heaven. Benny Hinn talked about how people often say: “Pastor Benny, you have problems?” And he replies, “Yes, even more than you.” Worship leader Don Moen thought twice about releasing his hit single “I will Sing” because he felt people would think: “Don, you have such huge problems.” Sometimes life offers problems just for the sake of it. What do you do in these times? You consider.
You consider how good the Lord has been to you in times past. You see how His hand has led you through the wilderness of uncertainty, lack and despair. God never promised you a lack of troubles, but He did say He will be with you as you pass through them. Take your eyes off your current mountain momentarily and just consider. I, personally, have saved over a thousand testimonies of what God has done in the lives of others, and I often go back and read these in difficult times to consider how good our God is. Read 2 testimonies that came in this past week and consider, be inspired. God is on your case too.
Consider a Godly Husband and a Job From Nowhere
Am blessed with this good husband, I thank God for him. I have been patient for 5yrs waiting for God to bless me, but truly those who wait upon Him will never regret. I really appreciate Evangelist Uche. You have been encouraging me during the times I feel like I want to give up. You really give me advice and prayers. Thanks, and God bless you so much. – Dorothy
Evangelist Uche, You wouldn’t believe what just happened to me after I sent you that email. I broke into praise, I thanked God for what he’s done to me, and I prayed for my friends and relatives. The next morning I was offered a temporary job to start immediately. The most amazing part of this story is that I never applied for the post, nor did I attend any formal interview. A day after, I was offered another temporary job. I was caught at a crossroads to choose which way to take as both required me to start immediately and on the same day. God guided me, and I’ve started working at Copyright Society of Malawi. My prayer now is that God makes this permanent. Thank you. – Maggie
In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: – Ecclesiastes 7:14
