nature does not know how to acknowledge a setback.
AS LIVING BEINGS, WE SHOULD TAKE A CUE FROM NATURE TO ADAPT EVEN WHEN OUR SURROUNDINGS ARE LESS THAN OPTIMAL.
Seeing nature at work is a remarkable thing. A storm comes and passes through, destroying everything in its path. And yet, it does not waiver, but simply adapts and finds another way to grow.
Entire industries are built on overcoming the forces of nature and its resilience and God-given determination to grow in the most rocky and resistant of areas. Where it appears to be weak and erradicated by weedkillers, plant poison and the like, it is actually made stronger.
Such is the DNA given to us by all-mighty God. We are created in his image and are to do many good works throughout the earth. Like a plant or moss or flower that springs up in the most unlikely places, so is the word of God when it is planted.
God has set the earth as his footstool, and therefore nothing that is his can be cursed when he has blessed it. Simply put, God's word does not return to him void. It is a seed that once planted, will take effect in the most challenging of environments.
What can you do to adapt to circumstances that are not ideal? Keep steadfast on honoring God. Do good things unto others, and have a bright and sunny outlook. Generating your own inner sunshine will provide the sunlight you need to emerge forward and grow.
So when challenges come your way, turn inward and go to your place of peace and prayer closet. Meditate on God's holy word and trust and rely on him. Proceed as if victory and triumph is inevitably coming your way.
Set your mind on one thing: growing and moving forward. Focus on nothing else but forgiveness, peace, charity and reconciliation.
Trust that God will provide everything you need to water your seed and that the components of fortitude put in you will press through the most stony foundations. That bedrock of faith will push you past and on and upward towards a new season of growth, opportunities and vision.
Confession points on growth in financial endeavors:
Colossians 1:6 “which is come unto you; even as it is also in all the world bearing fruit and increasing, as it doth in you also, since the day ye heard and knew the grace of God in truth;”
Colossians 1:10 “to walk worthily of the Lord unto all pleasing, bearing fruit in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;”
The Christian faith teaches that sin seperates us from God, and hell was created for Satan and his angels. Where will you spend eternity after you die? Jesus is Lord, and the son of God. He died on the cross for the remission of our sins, and rose on the third day. Confessing this with your mouth and believing with your heart is the pathway to salvation, an abundant life and eternal life in heaven. (From Romans 10:8-7).
Profession of Faith: Lord Jesus, I confess with my mouth and believe in my heart that you died on the cross from my sins and were raised from the dead. By faith, I am saved.
