A Thankful Heart in Tribulation
A few weeks ago I found myself in prayer thanking the Lord for my trials and tribulations. Keep in mind this was WHILE I was going through some difficult times of rebuking Satan and making my way to higher ground in the Lord. However I found that nothing worked as powerful as the moment when I found this key right here. Praying and spending time in THANKSGIVING to the Lord.
After I had finished in prayer that day, thanking the Lord for putting me where I was and believing I was there for a certain reason, and accepting that the Lord had me in this position to grow and mature me, I found complete victory. I felt as if I had taken a huge step in my spiritual walk and I felt in my spirit the victory, and knew that Satan had just lost the battle, and the Lord received all the victory.
We so often hear scriptures such as Philippians 4:9-13 as an example. “..whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about such things.”
God’s word doesn’t say “Be down and depressed, and focus on everything bad going on around you…” NO, he says to focus on the good things that he has given to you and to act with a hope filled heart at all times.
We could read this scripture day after day, but how many of us actually apply it?
In our payers how long do we sit asking God to deliver us from a situation, rather than thanking him for placing us where we are, in it.
When we go through spiritual battles, we must realize that the Lord is making us “Spiritually fit” to fight on the front lines. He is helping us to mature in his word and in our walk with him. With every trial he is strengthening us to hold up our shield of faith, to protect our lives, household, and walk against the enemies blows.
So I challenge you today, that whatever you situation is, whatever battle you are going through, or manifestation you are believing God for. Hold up your shield of faith and stop the enemy in his tracks.
Thank God for placing you where you are today. Thank him for the trials that are sharpening you and making you stronger. And thank him for his grace, mercy, and love he has shown to you. Focus on these things, and throughout the day whenever a negative thought tries to disturb your peace, cast it out, as a lie from Satan, and begin praying and thanking God once again, believing that he is good and faithful, and he WILL deliver you as he has promised. It all starts with the application of your faith.
Now the key to Victory is in YOUR HANDS. Go and apply this principle today. Spend time with God and Praise him amidst the battle, so that you may feel the victory/and peace the Lord has for you each and every day.
By your step of faith today, you have just come against Satan’s plot of misery and turned it into God’s Victory! Join his #winningTeam today!
