“IT IS WELL!”

(Your Life Responses Are Important)

2 Kings 4:26

“Please run now to meet her, and say to her, ‘Is it well with you? Is it well with your husband? Is it well with the child?’ ” And she answered, “It is well.”

LET’S TALK.

When you read the scripture above in context, you’ll see that the Shunammite woman was rushing to go see the Prophet Elisha, because her son had just died.
On sighting her from a distance, Elisha asked his servant to go and enquire from her if all was well. When the prophet’s servant asked her, “Is it well with you, with your husband, and with your child?” she replied, “It is well.” At no time did she change her positive confession, and because of her persistence, she got her boy back to life. That’s faith!

What would your response be if the college you applied to sent you a rejection letter? Would you say, “Nothing ever seems to go right for me” or “It’s all working out for my good”? If your grades weren’t up to par as you wanted, would you say, “I’m just a flop” or “Success is my birthright”? If you received sad news from home, would you declare God’s peace over your home or break down in tears?

You must realise that it’s not just what happens in your life that’s important, but what you do about it. When the storms of life rage, you must learn to respond in faith and not according to your senses. Responding in faith will cause a change in the situation, while following your senses will cause you to be overcome.

To respond in faith, you need to fill your heart with God’s Word, because faith comes by hearing the Word. Besides, your response would always be based on what is in your heart. So, the next time you feel the squeeze of life, don’t cry, run away, or wallow in self-pity. Focus on the Word, and declare what it says about your situation.

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. Romans 8:37


Now normally I don’t like to copy and just paste stuff for you. But you see, a friend of mine is going through a difficult time, I almost want to ignore it all and leave him to it but that isn’t right. I see him holding himself together and all and I can’t help wondering..

Would I react the same in his shoes?

Of course I’m never getting in his shoes.

But you see there’s something Our Father told me once.

IF YOU LOOKED AT YOUR PROBLEMS FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF OF ETERNITY…SEE YOURSELF IN THE NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH, WHERE YOU LIVE FOREVER…DO YOUR PRESENT PROBLEMS MATTER THEN?

YOU ARE ETERNAL. That’s a fact. Focusing totally on today’s issues like they are the deciders of your destiny is totally childish…

Don’t forget…😎

ALL THINGS {GOOD AND BAD} DO WORK TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD OF THEY THAT LOVE GOD AND ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE.
[Romans 8:28]
