Trials into Triumph
Today’s song is a reminder that God is in control! There is no limit to what He can do; nothing is impossible for Him. Luke 1:37 - “For with God nothing shall be impossible.” Life is full of trials. When you're going through a tough time, pray in Jesus’ name that God will come and turn your trial around. Whatever you're facing, turn to the God of all hope and ask for help. Romans 15:13 - “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”
It is by faith that God heals and moves, but almost always when our faith is demonstrated first.
What is faith? Hebrews 11:1 - “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” If we are living by faith, His righteousness will be revealed. Romans 1:17 - “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” Those who accept the gift of righteousness now are expected and empowered to live their life by faith and not by the flesh.
How do we live by faith? Faith is an ‘action’ word. Living by faith is a process of spiritual growth. Believers who live by faith are willing to trust and obey God even when they don’t fully understand all of His ways. Circumstances that seem to contradict the Word of God don’t trouble them because they know God’s Word is truthful and trustworthy, and they’re not ruled by worldly thoughts or opinions.
Song Lyrics: I'm praying, “God come and turn this thing around.” I'm calling on The Name that changes everything … yes, God, turn it around! Sing, “God, turn it around.” 'Cause all of my hope is in the name of Jesus! Breakthrough will come in the name of Jesus! He is up to something; God is doing something! He is healing someone! He is saving someone! God is doing something right now. He is moving mountains, making a way for someone. God is doing something, yes, He is!
God loves you, but don’t expect Him to do anything more for you if you aren’t doing anything for Him. Are you living by faith?
