Pushing Through

One thing I've seen in my families life is that when something great is about to happen something bad always seems to happen in conjunction with it.

Is there anyone else that happens too?

For example over the past month every time we are going to have one of our core team meetings my wife gets sick either the night before or the day of. Why it happens, I have not clue.

What I do know is that there are times in our lives when we need to be resilient.

Resilient means returning to the original form or position after being bent, compressed, or stretched or marked by the ability to recover readily, as from misfortune.

There are times when we are going to be stretched spiritually. When our adversary, the devil, knows something good is about to happen, he will pull all the stops out to keep us from becoming all God wants us to be.

That is why we must be resilient. We must see that happening and push through it. We must snap back quickly and press forward.

When All Hell Lines Up Against You...All of Heaven Rises Up For You!

What area do you need to be more resilient in?

That happens in our lives a LOT. Definetly satan's way to try and distract you from the good that God is doing in your life. If he can get you grumbling over bad things...God isn't getting all the praise He deserves for the good.

Course, thats just my take on it. :)

Satan can't rob your salvation or your calling, he can try to rob you of your joy and confidence in God.

Keep praising through it...cause you are going through.

This is so true. Not only did we have an awesome time of growing and learning through revival this week, but last night after we got home from church, we had a spiritual breakthrough of strong holds that have been on our marriage and in our lives since a few months before we were even married. It was awesome and peaceful. Then this morning I wake up with pink eye in both eyes and Scott gets a call that his aunt died this morning. I am so glad we have the power of God on our side.
