Then Jesus said to His disciples, Therefore l tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or about your body what you will wear. Life is more than food and the body more than clothes. Consider the Ravens, they do not sow or reap they have no storerooms or barn, yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds, who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing why do you worry about the rest?
Luke 12:22-26 NIV
I have encountered God in so many areas of my life and with so many in the world facing uncertainties as a result of Covid-19, I want to share my testimony of God’s promise to never leave us nor forsake us.
There was a time in our lives when my husband and I didn’t have a source of income to provide for our two beautiful children and ourselves. Month after month, there were bills to take care and we needed to put food on our table. I remember vividly that we would panic and look to others for help. Believe me, ladies this route in tackling a need in your life is the worst nightmare ever. We would get frustrated when people would promise but not deliver. So, eventually as children of God, we decided to focus on the word and the promises of God. The Holy Spirit ministered to me one afternoon He said: “Quit looking for help from mere man and look unto me for all your needs because men will fail you”.
From that day forward, we would pray and tell God all our needs, remember the Bible says,
Before they call l will answer, while they are still speaking l will hear.
Isaiah 65:24 NIV
We decided to stand upon the promises of God and we conquered. We would ask God in prayer for every little tiny thing and the word worked for us. Today, l stand here as a champion, a victor, an heir of God and a joint heir with Christ Jesus.
Whatever situation you might be going through the word will chart its course in your life. Refuse to believe anything that is contrary to the word. Put your faith to work and trust in God, He has never failed anyone and is not about to start.
During difficult times, it is easy and common for couples to attack each other, but I urge you to choose to ignore the fiery darts of the devil and encourage, empower and ask God to direct your paths. Many give up and fall victim to the devil, resulting in each going their separate ways, but remember, your spouse is not your enemy. You are a seed of Abraham and can never be disadvantaged. Christ Jesus the hope of glory lives in you. Rise up, dust yourself off, and fight until you win, for you have all it takes.
Train your mind to focus on the word of God.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardships, or persecution or famine, or nakedness or danger or sword.
Romans 8:35 NIV
We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus our Lord. Whether it’s your marriage, children, business, work, academics or even your finances, the word of God has a solution to each and every situation. There is always a reason to smile, so choose to be happy no matter the circumstances, you may find yourself in.
