We all live in a World where we see everyone has some or the other problems in life. It may be due to health, finances, broken marriage or relationship,, childless, homeless, jobless…its a never ending list.
Every time we have our own problems, we feel like the heaven has fallen and this is it, this is the end and there is no hope. We start questioning ourselves and God. We often say, “Oh God, Why Me?”. We get soo discouraged by the situation that we let the fear, stress and worry take on us and without our knowledge we fall into the trap of what is called Depression. We forget to smile, cheer, we start loosing faith and see no hope, we believe in what negative comes from people outside, we talk negative to ourselves and to the people around us and we start believing in the situation itself like the end. Its common human nature…
When we look back at our own lives, there will be soo many incidents, situations that we must have been in, situations that we never expected we would get into or incidents even in our darkest dreams we may have dreamt off but today if you are in a better place then you need to understand that it is all God’s plan. For He alone knows what we need and how we can get there. We cannot understand His ways and His plans for us but He will always want the best for us. Imagine, had we not gone through the situations and incidents, we would not have been in a better place that we are today. If our parents who have given us birth can plan and give us the best, you can imagine what God who has created you and me could do for us right.
The word of God says Isaiah 45:2 -” I will go before you and level the mountains; I will break in pieces the doors of bronze and cut through the bars of iron”. 1 Pet. 5:7 “Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you”.
When we were formed in our mothers womb God has already planned our days, he knows exactly when and how things are going to be. So, instead of crying over it or getting depressed and feel like its the end of the world all we have to do is turn to Him. I realised that if we are in a situation then God is aware of it already and God is there even before the incident or situation has occurred which is why may be we are still alive! But if we are going to let the situation take on us and we believe that this is not going to be good then we have already given the power to negativity to make things worse for us and it will definitely end up the way we think it will. Cause its all in the mind and heart!
No one said life is going to be easy. Yes, there will be happiness, pain, sufferings, people will leave you, rejection, loneliness and so on but what we need to focus is that God is with us and always near us. We just need to open our heart and feel him, trust in him. Believe that God is ahead of your situation and if has brought you to it, then He will make sure that He will take you out and through it in a much bigger way than we can or have imagined. God never brings bad on his children just like our parents. He always protects us and watches over us day and night.
Do you know our words can become our reality! This is what I realised and I must say I’m relieved. We are at times where we are today because of what we are saying about ourselves. Words are like seeds and its like you sow what you seed. Many times we speak words like, Oh I’m not going to get this or I will never get such a big house etc., you see when we keep saying bad about ourselves our words will eventually turn into reality. Whether we realise it or not, we are prohesizing our future. Thoughts and worry comes to our mind but don’t verbalise it. Don’t give them life by speaking them out. When we have problems we go around speaking about it to people and inturn give life to the situation. Dont talk about the problem talk about the promise God has for you instead. How can we expect our life to be positive when we speak negative? Stop cursing your life and start blessing it. Start speaking good about yourself.
So the moment you start emptying yourself out of all the negatives, start speaking good and start counting your blessings and surrender the situation to God, we then let God to take control of that situation and fight it for us. He opens new doors, He send us His Angels who will help us without our knowledge. He alone who has the power can turn that situation around. He alone has the power to bring out good even from the bad. Yes, if only you believe and let go of all your negativity and let God in by faith and be relieved and let Him lead your way. Isn’t that great!
