It’s Time to 'Trouble' Your Trouble!
When you find yourself in trouble, you’ve got to know that God is for you. God is not the one who caused the trouble. God is not putting cancer on anyone, nor is He causing wrecks. At whatever point you are in life, you have got to say to yourself, “God is for me.” and mean it! Even if you don’t have the money for the rent right now, God is working to get it to you. Even if you don’t know many scriptures, in the midst of trouble, shout, “Jesus is my rent money!”
Too many churches are focused on principles and have lost Jesus. However, you need to know that Jesus is your way in, and Jesus is your way out!
Romans 8:31 says, “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” No matter what situation you may be dealing with, do not see yourself as alone or abandoned like an orphan. Rise up within yourself and say, “Not even YOU can be against me!”
No matter what happened—whether you caused it or are just suffering for being a Christian—God is for you and is working to deliver you. If you, like the children of Israel, have come to a Red Sea, know that God will create a dry path just for you to walk on!
I have noticed that miraculous manifestations occur for men and women who are focused on God’s love for them. The more you drench yourself in this truth, the more you will walk in victory. At the onset of any challenge, begin to focus on this fact: “God loves me!”
And not only that, when you receive Christ, He makes you righteous. When you KNOW this, you will begin to attract whatever it is that you need in life. You will walk in a new realm. You will walk in the supernatural!
Knowing that God loves you will make you mighty. Now, might is imparted to you by the Holy Ghost when you receive God’s grace. It is the ability to do all things. What makes you mighty is knowing you are God’s beloved, and that He loves you. God is on your side. This is how David slew Goliath! In fact, David’s name means beloved.
Also, knowing that God loves you is beneficial! The Bible says, “Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward” (Hebrews 10:35). And what is this confidence? It is that God loves you!
When you plug into the power of knowing how much God loves you, things will begin to happen for you! Watch your faith work!
God loves you enough to restore what was stolen from you—even that which was stolen from you at an early age. God loves you enough to deliver you out of depression—to even change your financial status!
Still, I see too many Christians who are under a curse. First of all, God does not put curses on people. From God, we receive blessings and empowerment. However, a curse is an empowerment to fail. It only comes to people who believe that God does not love them.
Psalm 34:19 says, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.” If you are a Christian, and your entire life has been filled with failure, something is wrong! You should know victory and success—and know it well. You might carry your “cross,” or you may be going through HELL, but in the end, people should be able to say about you, “But God delivered them out of it all!”
Jesus did not go to the cross and endure suffering for you to fail and fail and fail. No matter what you go through, the end of your story should be: “We won!” Jesus warned us that we would have tribulation in this world, but our testimony should be: “I got delivered!” “He blessed me!” “I am healed!”
You’ve got to get up in the morning and go with the attitude of a sparrow. The sparrow knows that it is cared for by God. Have you ever seen one stressed-out on a branch? It’s time for you to stop being worried and paralyzed with fear. You are more valuable to God than many sparrows (Matthew 10:31)!
You ought to praise the Lord right where you are, for His love and kindness are GREAT toward you RIGHT NOW! And, like the sparrow, you should be singing about His love for you all the day long.
