Don’t run away!

Home | A Miracle Every Day | Miracles | Don’t run away!

Have you ever noticed? When facing difficulty, our first line of defense is frustration.

We can’t understand why our spouse won’t stop looking at his/her phone when we so desperately need someone to listen, why our coworkers seem to do everything possible to make work an ordeal, and why our pastors can’t seem to help us solve our problems…

So, our fight-or-flight survival instinct kicks in… and we flee.

We change:

  • Churches,
  • Spouses,
  • Jobs,
  • Neighborhoods,
  • Friends,
  • Etc.

Then, quite often, the difficulties return… And we may not want to acknowledge them. We close our eyes…

However, rather than running from them, the Lord exhorts you to find joy, take pleasure, in these difficulties!

Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christs sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (the Bible, 2 Corinthians 12:10)

Why? Because these difficulties always hold a message for you.

What is God’s message for you?

Your Father, because He already accomplished everything for you, wants you to walk in His victory. His grace alone is enough… you can exchange your bitterness for forgiveness, what’s impossible for you for what’s possible for Him. Maybe you need to grow in flexibility, reexamine your priorities, or perhaps learn to better communicate?

It’s with such love that God sends you this message of hope: I love you just as you are, and I love you so much that I cant leave you in this place. I can bring you further, higher. You can let goMy grace is powerfully revealed in your weaknesses. I am with you! Dont be afraid.”
