20 Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. 21 A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. 22 So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. -John 16:20-22
Circumstances will come and go in your life. Pain will exceed your expectations and subside again. Your wealth will come and go, your health only a moment away from being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Understanding that failing is OK is a critical part of your walk with Christ. However, I don’t mean just giving up or not giving your best effort. But a definition of failing, through giving your best effort, but still coming up short because God has something better planned for your life.
There are going to be hard times, the bible is full of those warnings, but understanding and truly believing in your heart that God is in ALL circumstnaces will take your anxiety to an all time low.
Whether it’s a potential relationship, job interview, financial payment due, or any other stressful, yet unknown life circumstance- dont worry.
Position yourself in a way that God can bless you. Position yourself in a way that you give your best effort, so that the only reason you could possibly fail is if God allows you to because it’s not the course He wants you to take.
If you aren’t willing to position yourself for God to bless you, you’re just lazy.
Though hard times may lie ahead, God is good in all circumstances. Even though you might not be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel, He will light your footsteps. Even though the storm is raging and He’s calling you to take a step of faith and walk on water, you follow. Even though the pain is so immense and He’s calling you to be a witness to the person that destroyed your heart the most, He is there.
God will never call you into a situation that He cannot handle your well being or spiritual eternity. God created the things you fear the most and knows how to handle every situation.
Weep no more because there is a day coming that tears will not matter.
God is good all the time and all the time God is good.
