Settle It In Your Heart

Make the decision that to follow Jesus means that whatever comes your way, you will keep following Jesus. 

Make the decision to stop trying to find a way out and trust God to help you find a way through. 

Make the decision to keep walking with God, through good days and other days. 

Make the decision that however people may treat you, you will remain restrained, will hold your tongue and instead of bitterness and resentment will show love and forgiveness. 

Make the decision to stay planted, that even though you can afford the luxury of thinking about quitting, you will not quit. 

Make the decision that just because it’s difficult doesn’t mean it’s the devil. It could just be tough. Allow God to use it to shape for the future. 

Make the decision to see God even when you can’t see God. Know that when it looks like nothing is happening that everything is happening. Behind then scenes He is working things out. 

Settle these things in your heart. There’s always going to be reasons to want out but guard against them and stay in faith. 

Don’t think you can do it. Just look at Joseph (Genesis 37 onwards). If he can travel through all those experiences and remain confident in God to bring about the dream then I’m certain He can do the same for you and me.
