 “The lord said to Moses has my arm loss it power? Now you will see whether or not my words come true” Numbers 11:23(NLT). This verse comes into context when Moses was in doubt about God feeding 600,000 foot soldiers with meat for a whole month. Moses thought that this is outrageous because even if they butchered all their flocks and herds will that satisfy them? Even if they catch all the fish in the sea will that also be enough? But the lord told him that his arm hasn’t lost its power therefore he (God) can do that exceedingly. In the daily affairs of man, it is bound to know that challenges come, unpreferable moments come, situations and circumstances may fall on your feet. We are living in a world where anything can happen and as far as life is concerned. We see things and hear things that absolutely put us off the wheel. Sometimes the environment you are in may sometimes compel you either the good way or the bad way.

I do tell myself that whatever it may be God should help me fulfill my purpose thus knowing God’s assignment in my life. It doesn’t matter the pace at which you are going. What matters is the number of times the door is shut before you but you hold yourself up and keep moving. Though at some point in time it may seem you are not going anywhere or not doing anything. In some instances we mistaken God’s silence as his absence. When we are totally filled with uncontrolled depression and devastation. We often ask ourselves certain questions at least to be sure that indeed are we the son and daughters of God. I know a time comes in your life where your faith is tested. The position in which you stand may either make you fall or raise you. On the verge of absolute distraction is where our faith is tested.

You see sometimes you don’t actually see what’s coming until it comes and you experience it. It can be anything, being sacked, lay off at work, divorce, accident, sickness, financial constraints, death. You ask yourself what you haven’t done to exclude yourself from these challenges, situations and tragedies. One may say it is to him (God) to answer it all because it surpasses human analogy. Most of us are going through challenges that are peculiar to our own strength according to what we can handle even though it may look very big on the outside. As far as every individual path and destiny is different from the other, so it is in the challenges we face.

Never compare your troubles to someone’s own, yes he or she is having this or that, has achieved this or that, for you neither have you gained anything not even a recognition. Each of us have our respective seasons, mind you if yours is not in progress don’t envy someone else because if you do, you automatically start to bring forth undesirable things that might totally bring you out of the circle in which you are moving in. We must acquaint ourselves that through all the changing scenes of life we will still attest to the optimum fact that God prevails in all circumstances of our life. One thing for a fact that I have trusted God in understanding is in “Romans 8:28” And we know that all things work together for good , for those who are called according to his purpose.

I might not be able to afford somethings today but I know it is for good because today will not be forever there will always be another day and another day will always come.

A self-development attitude that will have a good influence in your life is by psyching yourself that whatever that happens it is for good not for bad. When you start to think, remembering the memories good or bad, the one’s that totally ripped you off the wheel. The ones that backed you up when you were tripping, the ones that totally boost you, they were all for good. To some they think they should have gotten more of whatever they wanted and to some they have little but are content with what they have. In this scenario, one has more than within his wants and desires and one is ok despite  having little and facing temptation and challenges. These two kinds of people are giving us a clue. One is insinuating that upon all he has, he still wants more and the other is ok with the little he or she has.

The gospel clarity of this matter is that God knows what and how to portion what he wants to give to mankind despite someone having more and hoping to get more and the other is content with what he has but hopes to get more. God in his own ideology knows what each of these two people will get, he knows the best that’s why man cannot totally understand the ways of God. We believe that things happen by chance, for instance you just got this house, car, you just had a call from the company that you’ve been employed or gotten an appointment, or your application has gone through for that matter you’ve gained admission, you’ve been cured of a disease. But nothing on this earth happens by chance, it happens by God’s permission and God permits things to happen in our life, so that we might see the purpose he has in our life. Never have undisputed doubt of the doings of God he moves in remarkable ways. Indeed God prevails over everything in all angles of life.
