Some of us have been in certain situations for the longest time, it doesn’t change, it doesn’t get better infact it only gets worse by the day, our problems have become our exile and captivity. Our problems have become like a nasty wound that just doesn’t want to heal, it keeps going from bad to worse! Most of the times when we go through trials, we tend to be downcast, we tend to be sad, we become prisoners in our own bodies, we stop growing spiritually, to the point that we can easily get into depression and before you know it, you hear so and so committed suicide.
The Word of God is alive and active, and just as it worked for the children of Israel, so it will work for us today, our God changes not. As the Israelites were advised when they went into captivity, so we should also learn from the same. Whatever problem comes our ways, we should not be down cast, we should not be sad, but we should look at the situation and ask ourselves “Lord what do you want me to learn through this?” and in your captivity, grow! Yes it will be hard, no one said it was easy, but you have to look at every situation and know that ‘if God brought you to it, He will certainly bring you out of it.’ And when you look at everything happening in your life from a positive perspective and even begin to thank God for who He is, even in your time of lack or in your time of need, praise Him and thank Him for things that you haven’t yet received from Him, He will work miracles in your life. Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. We hope for a better tomorrow yet we haven’t seen it yet, we hope and believe that God shall supply all our needs according to His riches in Glory! We hope and believe in Him we have not yet seen, believing by faith that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible Hebrews 11:3
