Larry Moore: Facing Challenges
Committed to Enhancing Your Spiritual Journey
No matter who you are, you will face challenges in this life. Some challenges may be the result of living on this planet, while other challenges are what I call “self-inflicted challenges” that come as a consequence of poor choices. Obviously there are some things we have control over and some things we have zero control over. Seldom are our choices clear, but we can get valuable counsel from a few available spirit-led sources.
One source is scripture. The Bible is full of stories of how God's people have met challenges and were victorious. And there are other stories of how they made the wrong choices and had to face the repercussions of those decisions. Another source is Christian friends who are wise and have our best interest at heart. I can tell you from experience how I have been blessed by good friends who gave good counsel. Another source is prayer and listening to God. He may respond audibly or simply speak to your heart or through scripture. I encourage you to use these three sources as you face life's challenges and remember the promise found in Philippians 4:19, “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”
