It’s been said there are only two things in life that are certain death and taxes, I believed that trouble can also be added to this list. Trouble is something that visits every one young or old, rich or poor, it doesn’t matter your background or where you reside. If you long on earth one trouble will knock on your door.
Here are spiritual way of dealing with trouble and coming out a victor.
1.resist fear:-fear is never liberating, it is only incapacitating, and fear hinders the supernatural from working for you. No matter how dire or impossible your problem may seems to you never have to fear when God is on your side. Find scriptures that deals with fear and those that promise freedom from fear and peace, meditate on those scriptures, reading them and confessing them out loud whenever fear want to come upon you.
2.remember that God is with and want to help you.
In psalm91:15, the Lord says,“he shall called upon me and I will answer him, I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver and him and honour him; this verse does not only say that God will be with you in good times. No he will be with you in trouble and will deliver you from trouble.
3.realised that God always has a way out:-1cor10:13 says, “there hath no temptation taken you such as is common to man, but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able, but will with the temptation also make a way to escape…….;
The apostle Paul is letting you know that God will not allow you to go through tests and trials beyond what you can bear. And when you experience tribulations God will also provide a way out. Instead of focusing on the problem, train your eye to look for way out.
4.always maintain a good attitude:-James admonished Christian to “……. Count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations” (James 1:2).by doing this you maintain a proper spiritual attitude, too many people have what I called “stinking attitude” that is because they only complain and cry about the adversity they are facing instead of doing something about it.
Saying things like, “I don’t understand why I’m going through this.” Won’t change the situation but when you “count it all joy” in spite of what you are experiencing, you are maintaining the necessary attitude of faith. And faith is what will change your situation.
5.walk in love:-the only commandment Jesus gave to believed was the commandments of love(john13:34)and the way to fulfill this command, is outlined in first Corinthian the 13 chapter. If you will be faithful doer of this, you will successfully eliminate a lot of adversity in your life.
6.use your faith:-used your faith to moved mountain-sized trouble from your life (mark11:23) to move any kind of mountain, you must believed in your heart that the word of God is able to change what look unchangeable. This is done by believing the word instead of what you see or feel. Scriptures has to be the highest and final authority in your life.
7.maintain a proper confession:-some people constantly talk about there trouble but doing this does not help your Faith, in fact a negative tongue will get you in trouble. We’re told to”………hold fast the profession of our faith. Without wavering, (for he is faithful that promise (heb10:23)when, we remember that the one who promised to pass, we are better to watch our tongue. And talk more about the promised than the problems.
As you follow the step I have outline, realized that people in your life will put pressure on you, they will try to pull you away from the word of God. But stand your ground. God is faithful to perform is word.
