Are you going through a season of difficulty in life? Does it seem like for every step you take forward, you take two steps back? The Bible tells us that hard times and difficulty will come throughout this life, but we can rejoice because God promises us victory! Whatever struggles you may be facing today, make the decision to shake off any negative thinking and trust that God is working behind the scenes on your behalf. The more we trust Him and put our faith in Him, the more we are preparing ourselves to move to a higher level. Focus on the fact that brighter days are just ahead. Holding back or giving in will only make things worse, but when you fight the good fight of faith, God promises that happiness and joy are coming if you'll work with God, He'll take that adversity, turn it around, and use it for your good. It may be uncomfortable at times, but you've got to know that you are growing in God. God is maturing you. He is building character in you, and he is preparing you for the blessings He has in store for your future! Remember it’s called a fight for a reason. However, we fight from victory not for victory. Keep fighting!
