"You Are Bigger Than Your Circumstances or Life Situation."

Author:

Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, drink or use drugs when stressed; I write.

Recently, I talked to a good many individuals about the distinct challenges influencing their everyday lives. As I listened, I was seriously shocked at all that I heard.

As I continued to listen to what different people had to say about the disappointments, sadness, and heartache they were encountering, I perceived many were looking a ‘Peaceful Resolution’ to their issues.

It was hard to look into the eyes of those I love and see so much sadness. Some said they felt so sad, so drained of hope, that it tells me there is a dire need to find a useful and timely solution.

Yet speaking from experience, if anyone stands a chance at unity on this earth, this nation needed real revision from God. Many need their true identity restored, and they don’t need it halfway done, and we can only do it through Christ.

To begin a solution, I feel compelled to reach out and respond by writing an article sharing that I can identify with the various circumstances and understand what so many are experiencing.

Also, to God’s children, I know it gets hard, and you need the downpour to stop and the sun to shine. Hear me when I say that God wishes His children to be at peace, and He will give it to them if they allow Him.

Moreover, know that your purpose in life is more significant than what you are battling with, what I am indicating. “Nothing and no one can ever break you. Know that if no one encouraged you today, you are bigger than your circumstance or life situation.”

Just in case you question what makes you more significant than your circumstance or life situation. Life is not always easy to live, but know that the answer lies with the vital purpose place in your life that is bigger than any of your struggles.

And you are a part of something far more significant than all your circumstances, and that connection is being a member of a family with the living God.

Many of us struggle with highly stressful life events in our everyday lives. Some of us have trials coming at us back to back until we don’t have the time to breathe from one tragedy before the next hit us in the face. Take heed to this relevant quote, “If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.”― H.G. Wells.

Often, you allow the challenges you struggle with to prevent you from achieving your goals. When stressful situations happen, you can’t let it consume you, it how you respond will make a difference.

Except if you want to fulfill your mission, you must not permit your struggles to blindside you from what God calls you to do. To achieve your purpose, you must rely on the strength that you have through Jesus and understand that he is here.

Plus, hurt from hard trials makes it easy to believe that God isn’t amidst your troublesome circumstance, and He left you alone without comfort.

So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, only it might seem pessimistic when there are so many tough challenges happening to you all at once. You are only learning how to fulfill your essential purpose in life and let me be the one to share with you during the most challenging time I experienced. It is as if God is so distant, so far away, it is through the most challenging time that He is so in tune and a hand-on Father that will be there for His children.

There will be times when your problems seem to increase and make God look small, but in those types of time, remember God is bigger than all our problems.

Moreover, God said there would be many trials and troubles in our life, but we could have peace with him because he will assist us in overcoming all these hard times. God can be there for us if we let him as his word said in Revelation 3:20 King James Version (KJV) Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

A lot of us are facing a tough time. What challenging situation are you facing in your life right now? Maybe it’s a loss of a job, and you may wonder how you will keep a roof over your head.

Perhaps it’s a toxic relationship that is draining all the life out of you, and you are desperate to find peace and gain air to breathe. Or maybe the one person you love so much with all your heart and soul has died, leaving you feeling lonely and wondering how you will continue living life without him or her.

Possibly, it’s a financial situation where you spend your last dime and are left wondering where the next dollar will come from. Regardless of your tough situation, I am here to share with you from my hard circumstances; No hard time can overcome our God and remember, “You are bigger than your circumstance or life situation.”

Besides, there are things we can do when our circumstances seem more significant than our God. Let me share with you what I do when my problems look like tall mountains that are too high and hard to climb.

For most, I can climb the highest mountain and I know whatever battle I am facing. I stand victorious in the Word of God. Then I read these scriptures to assist me in my situation: Isaiah 41:13, Ephesians 6:11-17, 1 Peter 5:7, Philippians 4:13 and James 1:12.

The thing that helps me the most is to pray and stand on who my God is and know there’s nothing too hard for Him what’s too hard for us is just right for Him; He can help and deliver me.

People in the Bible got discouraged and one of my favorite persons to read about is David, a man after God’s own heart. 1 Samuel 30:6 shares how David was in distress when he considered his circumstances, it reads: Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters.

Although David strengthened himself in the Lord, his God. Another great man of God who inspires me, that I love to read about in the Bible, is Jacob. It shares how He was distressed and afraid that He lost His Faith temporarily.

Genesis 32:7 King James Version (KJV) “Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed: and he divided the people that were with him, and the flocks, and herds, and the camels, into two bands”.

Except despite losing his Faith temporarily, Jacob is a spiritual man who trusts in God and finishes strong. The Bible reads in Hebrews 11:21 King James Version (KJV) “By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.

During your most challenging time when it seems, we can’t continue; God asks us to grab hold of Him and trust Him, never to let go. If you are not holding onto God, what do you have to hold on to, that’s why so many lose the war and be so easily defeated during the battle.

There will be a time when you are placed in situations where you find yourself being hit by one blow after another, and you feel crushed and exhausted.

However, you can find peace and confidence in God that will NEVER be found here on earth. Isaiah 41:10 King James Version (KJV) “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness”.

I shared all this information in this article to let whoever is reading this. “You are bigger than your circumstance or life situation” and you are joined together in the family of God with a father who caresses.

Last word, bear in mind your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go, but they merely establish a starting position in your life. Yes, things have a way of interrupting your life and they can even cause a delay which is out of your control, but if you allow your God to prepare you in your everyday lives, you can make the most of any opportunity that occurs.

The most significant advantage of circumstances, they have a way of correcting you, guiding you and giving you the room to rise. Also, challenging situations will knock you down when you least expect it. But it’s best to remember sometimes you have to go through your worst to arrive at your best.

Finally, never forget, winners are not individuals who have never failed, but people who never gave up... and success who kept going, gaining victory.

Rajan, I enjoyed reading your reply and pleased to read such an intelligent response. I agree with you totally, and I believe you as, In my own life, I've seen God pull me through some tough situations as I didn't know what to do but as you replied God pull me out with a solution that I may continue to have faith in Him and live a happier life.

Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on July 21, 2018:

Well said. Yes, hurdles are a testing time. In a religious discourse, I had been to a long time back, the preacher disclosed that many people ask me why do those who believe in God suffer more than the ones who do not? To which he said that God wants to remove all the impurity within such persons so that when they meet Him their faces are radiant with purity.

So it is the attitude that we take that keeps not only our faith in God firm but helps us face head on any situation we are in.

The day changed my attitude to the difficulties and problems I faced in life and believe me faith in God has pulled me out of situations to which I had no solution in sight.

Very inspiring post! Personally, I tend to lose my faith everytime that I'm experiencing difficulties in my life. It seems like I need to struggle all the time. But yeah, I survived because of one person, God! Most of the time during my struggles, I will simply whisper and say, help me God! Whatever your plan in my life, you will find ways to guide me on my right path. This simple sentence is really effective for me as I was able to find at peace inside me.
