We need faith and confidence in God to consistently maintain an eternal perspective. One where we maintain our focus on God’s goodness and not on our challenges. Disappointments and set backs are a part of our journey and like David we can stumble when we consider the prosperity of the wicked. David said he envied the arrogant. (Psalm 73:2-3)
Because the word of God stands true, we have an assurance that the righteous will never be forsaken nor his seed be in want of bread. (Psalm 37:25) Sometimes we worry when it seems like people who do wrong go unpunished and we doubt God’s ability to avenge. God’s word does not lie and he declares that whatever a man sows that he will reap. It is true that God will exalt the humble and bring down the proud that exalts himself.
We have to remember the power and dominion that we have as saints of God and the fact that our victory is guaranteed. Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. (2 Corinthians 2:14) There is strength in God and he longs to show himself strong through us. We are his work displayed and God will use us to demonstrate his power to the world.
We need to take our positions, stand in the word of faith and be ready to be used by God. God has given us authority and once we understand who we are in Christ and what he calls us to do then our lives will never be the same. Be encouraged because God will strengthen us to pass the test and to be victorious.
