"I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.” - Apostle Paul (Philippians 4:11)
Paul was clearly a confident believer and nothing could sway him.
But what happens when you’re visited by doubts…and fears…and anxiety…and failures...? What then?
I mean, we fought them off so many times. We had the counseling, got the help, practiced mindfulness, prayed a ton… But back in they creep. How do we deal with these unwelcome visitors then?
Simple...We begin again.
We refuse to be discouraged or give up.
Jesus never gave up on you when you were living in sin apart from God. When you were a dead man/woman walking the earth with no future.
No one gave up on you when you were learning to walk. “What a loser! He can’t put one foot in front of the other. Forget it. He’s bound to the stroller.” Nope. They kept helping you up…over and over. Eventually, you started walking. But you still fell a lot. And you improved. Your legs got stronger. You didn’t quit. And now, walking is just like breathing.
When you’re revisited by fearful thoughts or failures from the past, recognize what they are—an opportunity to get stronger. Accept the challenge and walk forward with the confidence that the Lord will never leave you nor forsake you.
By staying focused on Jesus, guarding your mind, you get to choose to believe what this situation really means. If you fall, get back up, steady yourself, and walk again.
One day, “whatever the circumstances” will be a real thing for you. Just keep getting up, Take more steps and never lose sight that: “in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us” -Romans 8:37
