You don’t have to fake it

““I could say, ‘I will not complain. I will forget my pain and put a smile on my face.’”‭‭Job‬ ‭9:27‬ ‭ERV‬‬ http://bible.com/406/job.9.27.erv

Fake it till you make it right? People are always willing to tell you how to overcome big problems, but it’s not the big problem that you need help with. How do you deal with the everyday problems, the problems that appear normal to others but are wearing you out? One thing after another is happening, how do you do it? Example, you and your significancant other can’t get along for nothing, all of sudden you are arguing about stupid stuff. Bills, bills and more bills. Everybody need shoes or you look up and everybody is flooding, now they need pants but Consumers wants their money too. Add in a kid who is acting a plum fool, every day the school is calling for something. The car needs tires, tags, battery or something and your parents are getting older and need you more and more. Nothing big,  just a bunch of little things and now your pants don’t fit either and there is no time to work out so they are too tight or no time to eat so they are bagging. Work is crazy, you can’t be late again, can’t leave again and you hate your boss and a raise would not hurt. It’s always something. 
It appears everybody in the Bible needed that Big Thing , God showed up and boom, their life was changed. But you just need a little thing, you need a break. 
After you get tired of being sick and tired you turn over, roll down to your knees and bow your head right? You start praying and telling Jesus how you feel and boom,You are reminded of what He said:
“Jesus said to his followers, “So I tell you, don’t worry about the things you need to live—what you will eat or what you will wear.
None of you can add any time to your life by worrying about it. And if you can’t do the little things, why worry about the big things?”‭‭Luke‬ ‭12:22, 25-26‬ ‭ERV‬‬ http://bible.com/406/luk.12.22,25-26.erv

Don’t worry about it, sound familiar? The phrase sounds so easy, because it is. Trust that Jesus really knows what you need. Do this, think back to every crazy situation in your life and ask yourself “What did I do to make it right?” When I did that, I realized I had never solved anything in my life, I made a few things worse but it wasn’t until Jesus stepped in that it was truly resolved. 

“So, my dear brothers and sisters, stand strong. Don’t let anything change you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord. You know that your work in the Lord is never wasted.”‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:58‬ ‭ERV‬‬http://bible.com/406/1co.15.58.erv

It came to pass

“And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved.’”‭‭Acts‬ ‭2:21‬ ‭NKJV‬‬http://bible.com/114/act.2.21.nkjv

Whatever you are going through remember, you are just going through that thing, it’s not your destiny. Time after time the Bible God refers to things that have come to pass. He tells you about the thing that happened and then he reminds you that, it came to Pass. That means you survived.. oh yeah..it came to pass. 

“Now I tell you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe that I am He.”

‭‭John‬ ‭13:19‬ ‭NKJV‬‬http://bible.com/114/jhn.13.19.nkjv

God has given us joy, he wants us to live life full of joy. He wants us to understand that the things we deal with are not designed to break us but to strengthen us. He wants us to be joyful and accept that all things are working for our good. He wants us to trust him. Trust that if he did it for them ( the people in the Bible) that he will do it for us. He will fight our battles, he will restore our health, he will restore our marriage, he will get us a new job, he will save our house, he will protect our children, he will provide for all our needs. 

““These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.”‭‭John‬ ‭15:11‬ ‭NKJV

So I ask that you do a few things for yourself:

1. write down what you are dealing with. Write it down, see if on 📝 paper it still looks as big as your mind made it. 

2. Fold up that paper, and pray over it. Ask God to handle this thing for you. Pray over it and then wait on God. 

“And then GOD answered: “Write this. Write what you see. Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run. This vision-message is a witness pointing to what’s coming. It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait! And it doesn’t lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait. It’s on its way. It will come right on time.”‭‭Habakkuk‬ ‭2:2MSG‬‬ http://bible.com/97/hab.2.2-3.msg

Then I want you to get up and praise God. Praise him because it is coming.. your breakthrough is on the way. Trust God, don’t trust me. I’m telling you what God can do because I’m not in the Bible but he did it for me. He loves you just as much as he loves anybody else. 

“And it came to pass, when Abraham’s servant heard their words, that he worshiped the LORD, bowing himself to the earth.”‭‭Genesis‬ ‭24:52‬ ‭NKJV‬‬http://bible.com/114/gen.24.52.nkjv

I’m all the way up

With the faith of three, I say no matter what my situation looks like I will hold fast to my profession of faith; I will trust God and I will stand on what I know. I will not give in to the pressure, I will not be deterred, I will not be defeated by my situation. I will not allow the false gods of this world to determine my joy…it comes from the Lord.

I’m all the way up!
“If you throw us into the hot furnace, the God we serve can save us. And if he wants to, he can save us from your power. But even if God does not save us, we want you to know, King, that we refuse to serve your gods. We will not worship the gold idol you have set up.””‭‭Daniel‬ ‭3:17-18‬ ‭ERV‬‬
