As we were growing up we might have been negatively impacted by teachings that caused us to view things from a negative perspective, and because of that exposure many of us find that going through challenges is viewed from the vatantage point of fear, because of that we find ourselves reacting to situations which we should have embraced as growing points of our lives. Unfortunately the way we react to these situations gives it so much negative energy such that instead of the challenged be resolved once and for all it does not go away but comes back, in many different forms but all it’s requiring us to do is to take a good look at the problem so we can see beyond what our minds have been framed to see.
So at times what you see as a problem today actually is the way to the top of the mountain for you, if only you can ask God to give you eyes to see the way he see’s, only then can you rejoice and give thanks for all things, and that includes your problems because without them you will be stagnant and without growth. The point of the challenges is to help us understand that everything is a seed that needs to emerge from the soil it is planted in, it is not easy for the seed, it has to break through hard ground, debris, weeds and many other things before it can come to the surface. There are more things that it has to contend with even when it has emerged out of the ground, its growth has to be tested by pests, wind, rain and the sun. The issue is these are not meant to kill it, but to strengthen it so is our lives, so we need to consider being grateful for all things.
Jesus gave thanks to God for the cross, as we read Hebrews 12:2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfected of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. We have to develop the ability to see beyond the problem and weigh things not from the problem but seeing all the options that are available in the outcome of the challenge we see before us now. If you can see beyond the challenge then it is easy to give thanks to your creator for the awesomeness he arranges things and make them happen. Maybe it will help us to stop attacking and start checking things out properly without destroying nature and all that was created to benefit us. Maybe it will cause us to see the good out of all situations we choose to call bad and then maybe we will find the solutions to these situations easily.
In all things let us learn to give thanks, no matter how hard it is, at that moment but if we look beyond the trouble to the results where we come out polished and glimmering with glory, now begin to see everything as a Divine plan, you were created to go through it and no short cuts. Look forward to the end results it is all worth it.
