Truly, nothing changes when nothing challenges. In every great challenge lies an opportunity of great change. Your status can only change positively when you see possibility of conquering every challenge and opportunity therein. Most importantly, when you wholly rest on God, you will surely get His best. "For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world— our faith." - 1 John 5:4.
Take note of these facts of life:
* No promotion without examination;
* No gain without pain, especially in child delivery;
* No change of status without challenge of life;
* No overcomer without challenger;
* No celebration without confrontation;
* No triumph without temptation; and
* No testimony without tribulation/test of faith.
It has been established in the Scriptures that people of greater glory had greater challenges, but they were faithful to God, prayerful and obedient to His Word always. For example Father Abraham (Gen 12:1-7, 19:27), Jesus Christ (Mt 4:1-11, Mark 1:35, John 12:49), Apostle Paul (Rom 8:35-39, Acts 16:13, 2 Cor 12:7-10, 11:16-33) among others.
"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” - John 16:33.
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
- 2 Timothy 1:7.
In conclusion, know that whatever challenges you will surely change your life for good if you keep trusting God and keep working in His direction always. Shalom!
